Adopt a Pet

In a world that seems at times increasingly hostile, Animal Samaritans understands that kindness to living things is often taught.

Our Humane Education program is based on a philosophy dedicated to the principle of creating kinder communities through kindness to animals.

Every year we educate more than 12,000 children in schools.  We also provide summer camps to other children who might not otherwise have opportunities to bond with animals.

Our unique program’s effective curricula are helping to create a new generation of citizens who understand both how and why to treat other living beings with respect.  To find out more, email us at or donate below today!

Financial Stewardship

We know you have many choices when it comes to how to invest your philanthropic dollars, and Animal Samaritans takes seriously the stewardship of your investment in us.

The Wise Giving Alliance of the Better Business Bureau recommends that nonprofits not spend more than 35 cents on the dollar of its budget on administration and fundraising.

At Animal Samaritans that number is, year over year, close to 10 cents on the dollar. That means the other 90 cents goes to our mission and our services.

That’s just one of the reasons that Animal Samaritans, for more than 4 decades, has been among Southern California’s most trusted animal welfare organizations.

pets. not profits

At our state-of-the-art veterinary clinics, we’re there to provide your animals with the highest quality care, not to make a profit.

Because of your support, we are expanding this mission to broader and more diverse communities.

12,000 Animals saved!

Our Adoption Alliance Rescue Program has saved the lives of more than 12,000 animals. And were just getting started. We work with the local shelters to place animals they do not have the resources or staff to handle.  Thanks to donations like yours, we do!
