Have you found an abused, abandoned, or neglected animal?

SVAS does not currently have the facilities to quarantine animals with infectious diseases nor are we able to provide the around-the-clock care that these animals may require. Contact your county's Humane Society to ensure the animal is provided with the necessary additional care.
