We sincerely care.

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.

The average charity spends around 37 cents per dollar, also according to Better Business Bureau. Some organizations spend even more.

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.

Five More Reasons

15,000 animals saved!

Our Animal Adoption Rescue Program has saved the lives of more than 15,000 animals. And were just getting started. We work with the local county and shelters to place animals that they do not have the resources or staff to handle. We do!

Silver Paws

At Animal Samaritans we value living beings in their later years of life. We never give up on an animal because it is ‘too old’.

In fact, our organization makes special effort for their care and to find them forever homes. It’s some of our favorite work.

And for senior humans on fixed budgets, we offer financial aid when their animal companions need care for which they can’t afford.

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.

Animal Companion Therapy

In an increasingly violent world, we have seen time and again that respect for living beings is often learned.

We bring this education into schools and to other youth organizations, so that children, who might not otherwise have the opportunity, can begin to understand the healing power of gentle connection

between humans and our animal friends.

Animal sponsorship Opportunities

Not everyone has the time or space to adopt an animal, but at Animal Samaritans, you can save the life of a specific animal, or help provide for the needed care for a less fortunate familys sick pet. Its not just a gift of life, you caanswer a familys prayers.

We believe that kindness to living beings is learned.  Our unique Humane Education programs are helping create a new generation of kinder, more respectful citizens.
