Make a Donation

AVA relies predominately on personal donations to pay for the costs of animal care, including veterinary expenses and food, as well as to support the Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program. 95% of the money we get through adoptions and donations goes towards care for the animal!

Make a donation on behalf of someone, in lieu of a birthday present or in memory of a loved one. AVA will send a card to the individual or family.

A cat food drive is a great alternative or addition to a traditional child’s birthday party!

Your donation, no matter how big or small, really makes a difference! Thank you!

High Need Items
