Our Impact

By the Numbers

Animal Friends Alliance has been saving animals in our community since 2006.  In that time we have:

Adopted 33,995 cats and dogs into loving homes

Spayed and neutered 77,743 dogs and cats

Trapped, neutered, vaccinated and returned over 2,300 community cats

Keeping pets in homes

We believe that the best home for an animal is the loving home they’re already in.  We offer services to help keep pets with the families who love them, including:

Our Spay/Neuter Clinic helps local pet owners access basic preventative health care for their companions

Our Kibble Supply Pet Food Pantry fills the gap for pet owners facing financial insecurity

Our Prevent a Litter Plus program provides financial assistance for under-resourced pet owners to get their furry friends spayed/neutered and vaccinated

Foster Feature


Meet Manny! Manny is an adorable pointer mix who came all the way from Houston, TX to find his new home. He is looking for an active home with people who will appreciate his goofball personality.

His foster says “Manny is a sweet and loving boy! He is energetic, playful, LOVES snow and gets really excited about clicker training. He is picking up the basics really well and is really smart! He would love to keep learning (and earning lots of treats)! He will be a fantastic companion for an active owner. He’s also very mellow and loves to snuggle (for a little bit) and play with a variety of toys. He likes to climb up on your lap to give lots and lots of kisses. He sometimes forgets how big he is and can get a little mouthy while giving kisses. He calms quickly and is learning the boundaries on nibbling. Manny is a fantastic and smart dog who is goofy, happy and very loving. Looking for an active owner to include him in life’s adventures!”

 If Manny sounds like a good fit for your home, call 970-484-8516 to meet or adopt  him today!

What we do

Community Pet Resources

Spay/Neuter Clinic

Spaying and neutering not only prevents unplanned litters, it protects your pet’s health and wellbeing!  In addition to sterilization, our clinic offers vaccination, testing, flea/tick and heartworm prevention, and other basic preventative care.

Kibble Supply Pet Food Pantry

Pet owners who are governmental assistance, who are struggling to make ends meet, or who are facing a temporary financial hardship can receive free pet food from our Kibble Supply Pet Food Pantry on designated distribution days.  

Community Cat Program

Our Community Cat Program traps, spays/neuters, vaccinates, and returns community cats to safe outdoor placements or finds loving homes for socialized kitties.  If you are caring for a colony of community cats, we may be able to help.

Prevent A Litter Plus Program

Preventing unplanned litters and keeping pets healthy is important for every family, regardless of financial situation.  Our Prevent a Litter Plus program provides assistance to spay/neuter and vaccinate the pets of community members with lower income.

Tony’s Happily Ever After

Tony (left) was adopted from Animal Friends Alliance as a kitten. His adopters knew they were taking a risk by bringing a second cat home because their existing cat, Wayne, had never met a cat he liked. They did a slow introduction and who would have guessed it – the cats became best friends almost instantly!  Tony is almost 2 now and can still tumble with the best of them. They spend hours every day chasing each other and play fighting. When he isn’t busy shadowing his bro, Tony is the snuggliest little lap cat who loves to have conversations with his people.
We’re so happy Tony and Wayne found each other!
