Support Our Growth...Save The Animals!

In 2001, AFV veterinarians performed nearly 13,000 shelter and community pet surgeries, yet demand keeps rising. Surgeries are currently performed in a mobile clinic. The facility is too small for the number of pets needing our services.

Our goal is to unite our shelter and clinic campuses to make it more convenient for the communities we serve.

Beginning July 1, 2023 there will be a 1.35% credit card processing fee on all transactions.

Why donate your car, you may ask?

• Donating is easy and the pick-up is free.
• Donating skips the costs and hassles associated with selling a car, like paying for advertising and insurance, or for car repairs to keep your car in running condition while you wait for a buyer.
• Donating avoids the costs associated with keeping a car, such as registration, insurance, car repairs, and more.
• You can free up space at home and/or stop paying for extra parking.
• It’s better than a low trade-in offer.
• Vehicle donations are tax-deductible, and you could reduce your taxable income when taxes are itemized.
• Donating to save animals feels good and makes a difference!
