Join Us For Show & Tell Saturdays
One of the best parts about our location is that our kitties can invite you over to play from noon to 4:00 pm every Saturday. No appointment necessary -- come snuggle, pet...and maybe even fall in love. They'll be watching for you!

Who We Are

Animal Aid, Inc. is a non-profit volunteer organization whose basic premise is to relieve and prevent the suffering or death of our non-human friends from accident, starvation or disease. Animal Aid is supported entirely through donations which are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.

Our Mission
  • To reduce animal birth rates through spaying and neutering, while helping people keep their pets healthy and happy.
  • To prevent and reduce animal suffering.
  • To help the abused, the homeless, the injured and sick.
  • To educate the public by teaching and promoting the ethic of compassion and respect for all animals, including the need to be kind and responsible stewards.

  • Ready to take the next step in the adoption process?
    Please note: due to our screening preference to view the potential home and interview the prospective guardian, we rarely adopt out of our local Portland metro area.
