Animal Friends Alliance

Saving Animals Today

Animal Friends Alliance emerged in January 2020 from the union of Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic and Animal House Rescue & Grooming. The two joined forces to amplify our organization’s community impact and allow our programs and services to benefit more people and animals.

Animal Friends Alliance is a “limited admission, adoption guarantee shelter” for cats and dogs. This means we have to limit how many animals we take in due to space and financial restrictions, but we guarantee that every animal we take in will stay with us until they find a good home. We are 100% committed to finding the best outcome for every cat and dog that comes to us, and we do our best to make sure each one goes to the right home with an adopter who is ready to make a lifelong commitment to them. If for any reason an adopter cannot keep the animal they adopted from us, we will always take them back.

By providing subsidized spay and neuter for both dogs and cats, our spay/neuter clinic offers a proactive solution to pet homelessness. The clinic also provides preventative health care including vaccinations, deworming, heartworm testing, feline viral testing, and microchipping. For pet families facing financial hardship or who receive government assistance, we offer financial assistance for spay/neuter through the Prevent A Litter Plus (PAL+) Program, and free supplemental pet food through the Kibble Supply Pet Food Pantry.

Animal Friends Alliance is an IRS 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, tax ID# 20-4969731. We operate solely on monetary and in-kind donations, fundraising, and grants. We receive no government funding.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

To provide comprehensive companion animal resources, services, and education to the community to prevent homelessness and promote the human-animal bond. 

Our Vision

All companion animals experience a healthy home where they are wanted,
cared for, and loved.

Adoption Statistics

Our adoption-guarantee shelters accept surrendered and homeless cats and dogs. We provide all animals with preventative health measures, spay/neuter and microchips before they’re adopted. Our 2021 Live Release Rate was 98.5%, calculated by dividing the number of live outcomes (3,620) by the number of total outcomes (3,676).
