United Animal Friends (UAF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit group founded in 2003 by a group of avid animal lovers. Since our grassroots beginning, we have continued to grow in size and strength, while continuing to maintain our founding principles of rescue, volunteerism and compassion.

Our mission is to provide rescue programs and services to animals and those who care for them.

Our primary goals are:

  • Saving the lives of adoptable dogs and cats.
  • Finding the best home for each animal in our care.
  • Reducing pet overpopulation through our spay/neuter programs.
  • Feeding hungry animals through our Community Pet Food Bank.
  • Relieving suffering and facilitating the compassionate treatment of animals.

UAF is an all-volunteer organization. To support our programs and services, we rely on donations from individuals and businesses; grants from foundations and government entities; and fundraising events.  

Since 2003, we have found loving homes for more than 4,000 animals and spayed or neutered over 10,000. Our Community Pet Food Bank helps feed more than 700 hungry animals each month and ensures that all recipients are spayed or neutered. Our Trap/Neuter/Return/Manage Program improves the lives of feral and abandoned cats living outdoors. Our Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Certificate Program provides the means for low-income families to have their pets altered.

  • "United Animal Friends is a great place to adopt. Every animal is given so much love and attention. They are friendly and incredibly helpful."

  • We adopted Didi in September 2015.  I got her for my mom, but now she runs to greet me when I come home.  I am disabled and sort of lonely but she makes me feel so loved, I call her Jodie for the joy she radiates.


  • "I have worked for several years with United Animal Friends, they are an active member in our No More Homeless Pets Partnership. They work hard to find homes for their animals, taking advantage of every opportunity to introduce their animals to potential adopting families at the same time screening carefully to make sure each animal and family will work well together." - Diane Young, Best Friends Animal Society
