Overall Score & Rating 96.33

  Accountability & Transparency 96.00
This rating was published 04/01/2020 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Anderson Humane focuses on creating and supporting mutually beneficial relationships between people and animals. Current programs such as our Adoption Program, Military Veterans' Program, and Healing Paws Pet Therapy Program create positive, impactful connections between people and animals, improving the lives of both. Future programs will be offered in partnership with human-service organizations throughout our community, maximizing impact and changing lives for the better.

We are a resource for pet owners, providing information and services to provide better care for their pets. Services such as our Low-Cost Vaccination, Dental, and Spay/Neuter Clinics offer affordable veterinary care options, preventing owners from having to give up their pets simply because they can't afford care. On the horizon are additional programs to keep pets in homes, such as a pet food pantry, affordable pet training options, and temporary housing for pets when families are in crisis.
