An Introduction to
Upland Animal Shelter
Friends of Upland Animal Shelter is a group of dedicated individuals committed to supporting the Upland Animal Shelter.
Friends of Upland Animal Shelter is the group of volunteers who are committed to supporting the shelter with time, talent, and fund-raising activities. During the past several years, these volunteers have created positive relationships with shelter staff and have spent thousands of hours assisting at the shelter or at off-site events. In August 2011, the Friends was recognized as a member organization of the Upland Community Foundation.
Friends of Upland Animal Shelter recognizes it is necessary to supplement staffing and public funding of the shelter so that it can provide a high quality of care for homeless pets and find homes for as many adoptable pets as possible.
Friends of Upland Animal Shelter will focus on
activities that support the comfort, health, well-being, and adoption of homeless pets at the shelter, including:
- Assisting with programs for animal care and socialization, adoption counseling and promotion, special events, and educational outreach, and any other shelter needs.
- Pursuing private donations to provide funds for environmental enrichment, equipment, medical needs and procedures, and any other shelter needs.
- Applying for grant funding that is available to non-profit organizations to assist the shelter in programming needs.
Friends of Upland Animal Shelter is committed to working collaboratively with shelter staff and the community and dedicated to providing an inclusive organization that welcomes community involvement and participation.
The Friends are always seeking new members who wish to help Upland’s homeless pet population. Members can choose to volunteer time at the shelter, donate money or supplies, or offer other types of support such as fundraising, working at off-site adoption events, plus much more.
