At Animal Friends, every day is full of compassion. Through our progressive pet-focused programming we’re changing and improving the lives of the people and pets in our region each and every day.

So for the 31 days of May, turn your compassion into action. Even one day of compassion can mean a life saved, an ailing body healed and a pet rescued. It’s all about working together with compassion and hope.

There are so many ways to join Animal Friends this month. Whether you adopt, volunteer, donate or attend one of the many fun events at Animal Friends or throughout the community, we can’t wait to meet you!
