The year 2020 is a milestone for Animal Care & Welfare, Inc. as we celebrate our 50 year anniversary!

AC&W has been around almost as long as the Humane Society of the United States, which is quite an accomplishment for a small, non-profit organization.  For many of you who knew Ed Blotzer, our founder, you know he would be proud that his vision and love for animals lives on in all of us, including you.  Whether you have helped us through donations, adoptions, education, or rescue efforts to help animals in need, yoiu have become part of the AC&W family.  As we celebrate this momentous anniversary with you, we look forward to continuing Ed's journey and our ongoing efforts to rescue animals and save lives.

Please continue to donate whatever you can so we can keep doing what we do best-- SAVE DOGS AND CATS IN DESPERATE NEED!  We have links to donate on our website, through Paypal.  Please consider donating whatever you can today.  We deeply appreciate all the support!



We are now registered with Amazon Smiles, a fundraising program through Amazon.
