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 Shih Tzu 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

It is our goal to provide unwanted/stray animals with a safe nurturing environment where they can be either reunited with their owners or placed into new life-long, loving homes. We are committed to providing these animals with the proper care and attention they need to thrive in our facility and try to accommodate their individual needs. Ultimately we will work daily to provide as many adoptable animals the opportunity to find new homes. 

Giving each pet a chance - Saving one animal at a time.
