Animal Care Sanctuary

Ms. Sinclair founded Animal Care Sanctuary, ACS, in 1967 in Toms River, New Jersey in response to the shameful, wide-spread practice of vacationers abandoning their pets when they returned to their homes at summer's end. In the United States, in the 1960's, an estimated 30 million cats and dogs were euthanized each year. Few shelters existed; pet population was totally out of control and recognition that spay/neuter procedures were imperative had not yet come to be.

Lesley Sinclair understood the need for no kill shelters, although the term had not yet been coined. That is what her mission was from the beginning and that is how it endures to this day. She also understood very well the huge need to stop the overpopulation of animals by adopting spay/neuter procedures. In 1975, Animal Care Fund (now Animal Care Sanctuary) became the first certified organization to perform spay/neuter procedures in the state of New Jersey. She knew that animals needed not only to be rescued, but also to be made healthy and she had vets ensure that her animals were in tip-top shape. She also knew that the best future for a homeless pet was in a loving, forever home. At that time, Internet technology did not exist. She sought the help of friends to adopt, took out ads in major newspapers such as The New York Times and Philadelphia Inquirer, and she hand-wrote thank you notes to all supporters.

Animal Care Sanctuary quickly outgrew its quarters. When Lesley Sinclair's plans for new property in Toms River, New Jersey were thwarted by zoning laws, she moved the operation to its present location in East Smithfield, Pennsylvania in 1982. The current sanctuary sits atop a mountain on 129 wooded acres surrounded by fields and streams, in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania.
