For more than four decades, Animal Samaritans has fought to end animal shelter overcrowding and the resulting unnecessary euthanasia of pets. We believe in the unique healing and teaching power of animalhuman connections and have designed programs to bring that power to the public. Through the generosity and benevolence of people like you, Animal Samaritans has directly saved the lives of more than 12,000 animals and prevented the euthanasia of countless others.

You can help us continue this important work, today and for years into the future, by giving a gift through your estate, will, trust, or other financial instrument. Animal Samaritans has financial staff and expert advisors to help educate you on what the best financial plan may be for you.

Please contact us by phone at (760) 601-3924 or email at . We would love to speak with you.

Men have forgotten this truth, but must never forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.

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!
