“We need more veterinarians like Dr. Annie who put the well-being of animals above all else. I am very impressed by her approach to veterinary medicine… I look forward to Dr. Annie’s continued involvement in the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA). And I look forward to building a strong partnership with AWC going forward.”

Take Me Home

In just the state of California, approximately 1,000,000 dogs and cats are euthanized each year just because no one was there to take them home. Take Me Home is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that has been saving the lives of homeless animals for more than nine years. We work in conjunction with shelters and rescues throughout California and beyond to help save animals on death row, on the streets or in unsafe living conditions.
