We are Animal Nation, a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization. We do our part to help the animals who cannot help themselves. Our group started out as a wildlife rescue group in 2001 and has since expanded to include farm and domestic animal rescue and adoption, focusing primarily on cats and kittens.
The primary goal of our adoption program is placing the discarded animals in our local community into loving, permanent homes. Our rescue animals come from a variety of situations ranging from trapped or found litters of kittens that we spend weeks socializing to owner surrenders, to animals dumped in a box at the door of veterinary offices or the local pounds. We help as many as we financially and physically can, however, we are a small group and must limit our numbers to ensure quality rescue and placement above all else. The goal of our Wildlife Rehab program is to provide vet care and rehabilitate wild orphans and release them back into the wild.
We are an all-volunteer group, relying solely on donations to help the fur-souls we rescue. Our modest adoption fees barely cover the routine vetting we provide for each animal, let alone the food, supplies and/or any additional vet care needed if they are sick or have an existing health problem.

We currently have cats and kittens for adoption and often have dogs, exotics and small furries, too. We proudly support TNR and work to control the feral cat populations in our area. We DO NOT have a shelter - we rely on foster homes, our adoption center at PetSmart and occasionally vet boarding for our adoptable pets, and as such, it is always necessary to make an appointment to visit with our adoptables. We only show animals to pre-approved adopters. We take the adoption process very seriously and believe that in order to truly "rescue" an animal, we must take great care when selecting their forever home.
