Animal Samaritans

About Us

Animal Samaritans is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit animal welfare organization committed to eliminating the euthanasia of adoptable animals. Programs and services in place to save the lives of healthy and treatable animals include prevention through humane education; low cost spay and neuter; low-cost vaccinations; microchipping; shelter and care; and adoptions to lifelong homes. We also offer free services that enhance the bond between people and animals, such as a volunteer-based animal assisted therapy program for hospitals, health care, special needs facilities, and Juvenile Hall. Animal Samaritans, founded in 1978, is the Coachella Valley's lead animal welfare organization. Our non-profit tax ID number is: 95-3171867
