Serving homeless pet owners and those who live at or below the poverty level in Davidson County.

Already this year we have had 46 animals totally vetted (this always includes spaying or neutering), we have treated and saved the lives of 11 (one for a knife wound), we have had 32 surrendered to us and placed into rescue and continued on with our commitment to a better world for these animals. That number now includes Miller the rooster!  In addition we have made sure that the pet owners we serve have access to pet food, cat litter and other necessities if they are unable to purchase these pet needs on their own. We have a very active pet food bank that now serves between 40-60 pets each month!  In addition we treat each animal we serve with either Advantage Multi, Frontline or Panacur. And although these are not high numbers as some organizations count, they are significant because they are animals who no one would even know existed if it were not for SAAW.

The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare offers programs ranging from low-cost spay/neuter certificates - available to everyone regardless of income - to programs that will either subsidize or completely pay for pet sterilization and vaccinations, based on income.


The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare has programs ranging from low-cost spay/neuter certificates, available to everyone regardless of income, to programs that will either subsidize or completely pay for pet sterilization and vaccinations. The free and subsidized services are income based.

The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare reaches out to pet owners who feel intimidated by full service veterinary clinics because they just do not have the financial resources to pay their prices. Many of these pet owners have the desire and ability to become responsible pet owners; they just need a helping hand in getting to that level.
