Through our many innovative programs, we reach across the country to rescue animals from overcrowded shelters, unwanted litters, puppy mills, natural disasters and other emergencies and find them responsible, loving homes. As a leader in the no-kill movement, we are dedicated to promoting shelter pet adoptions; encouraging spay/neuter programs; reducing animal cruelty; ending euthanasia; and advancing the highest standards in animal welfare. Please join us in saving the lives of innocent animals by donating to support our lifesaving mission.

About Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation
The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused solely on rescuing abused and neglected animals. We rescue them, provide full rehabilitation services, and then work to find them their fur-ever families. What makes us different from other rescues is that the animals we take in are not only shelter animals or strays. They are animals that have been beaten, kicked, shot, run over, used for gang initiations and have been waiting for the day that someone would come to save them.  Our other focus has recently been on rescuing dogs from the Asian Dog Meat Trade. From the slaughterhouses and torture chambers where the use of cruel and barbaric methods are practiced to kill dogs in order for their meat to taste better.  Our rescue is built into The PetStaurant, a natural food wellness company owned and operated by Nutritionist and Herbalist Marc Ching. Our organization is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization, so all donations are fully tax deductible. www.animalhopeandwellness.org
