Our Story

The Association for Needy and Neglected Animals was incorporated as a non-profit animal welfare organization in June of 2004.  The group is named for Anna - a Shitzu mix (pictured at left) that was brought into the local police impound and was scheduled for euthanasia.  Our director spotted her and took her in.  With a little time, effort and expense, Anna was cleaned up and back on her way to good health.  Our organization was started to help other animals like Anna get a second chance.  We put the extra time and effort into getting as many adoptable pets new loving, life long committed homes.

Our Mission

  • To provide lost/stray pets with a safe nurturing environment where they can be reunited with their owners or placed into a new loving responsible home.
  • To give unwanted pet animals a chance to be adopted into new caring homes with life long commitments.
  • To provide necessary medical care and spay/neuter services for all adopted animals or those in our care.
  • To provide this care in a loving, nurturing, clean, safe environment.
