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


Are you looking for a relaxed, sweetheart of a companion to spend chilly days lounging around with? Or how about to curl up on your legs while you read a good book and I’ll purr away and keep you company? Love and affectionate and the sweetest best friend? Snuggle together in some blankets and nap the day away? I’m your guy! My very favorite things are food and snuggly laps…in that order. I’m very laid-back and warm up quickly to new friends. I’m truly a kind and gentle soul. I’m looking for the perfect, cozy home to call my own and live out my days with my favorite people. I have a unique meow, a beautiful white and tan coat, and the sweetest temperament. I’m truly the puurfect packge.
     I am a very special senior boy looking for my perfect family. I am currently on a special Hill’s z/d diet to help keep my fur healthy and shiny as I have food allergies. It is also very important to know that I am FIV+. This means that I have a weakened immune system, but I can live a perfectly happy and long life with regular care from my humans and my veterinarian. I would love more than anything to meet you and share my sweet heart with you!

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.

Taco’s Happily Ever After

Taco was adopted from Animal Friends Alliance last fall. It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but this guy isn’t just any Golden Retriever, he’s a Corgi mix! His adopter says “He loves to cuddle, and play with our other dog, and he absolutely LOVES the snow!”
It sounds like Taco is in heaven with his new family, happy tails little guy!
