The Aces Foundation is a 501c3 whose only charity is El Cajon Animal Shelter. Aces pays for procedures and surgeries for animals coming into the shelter who would otherwise be adoptable but for some minor problems—we also purchase and assist the El Cajon shelter with their needs. Aces has paid for well over 100 animal dental, tumor removals and other surgical procedures this year alone.
