Friends of Upland Animal Shelter

Dear Friends,

Do you ever visit the shelter and wish you could adopt every last animal and give them a good home?  Many of your Friends  who work, volunteer, or visit at the shelter do. 

Not a day goes by when someone doesn't say, "I wish I could take (fill in the blank) home, but I can't..."  Usually, it's because they already have a house full of adopted dogs and cats.  Or, sometimes it's due to allergies or other circumstances that prevent them from adopting.

It's heartbreaking to see so many abandoned animals, but there is something you can do to make sure ALL the animals receive the love and care they deserve while they are waiting to be adopted.  You can support the important work of Friends of Upland Animal Shelter and help us care for over 2,500 animals every year.

This year, Friends of Upland Animal Shelter is participating in Giving Tuesday, which is a global day of charitable giving.

On this special Tuesday after Thanksgiving, we are asking you to remember all the animals at the Upland Animal Shelter by giving the gift of a donation to Friends.  Your donation will help us care for over 2,500 shelter animals each year until they find their forever homes. 

You don't have to wait until November 28 to make a tax-deductible donation.  We invite you to visit our Monthly Donor and Donate pages to find out how you can give and receive great donor perks.

Contribute More & Get a Chance to Win

Plus, everyone who becomes a Monthly Donor for $10 or more per month or donates $120 or more between now and Giving Tuesday will receive 10 FREE raffle tickets for a wonderful Knott's Berry Farm Gift Basket filled with 2 Annual Passes for 2018 and other treats from the "Farm."  The winner will be called on November 29.

We also invite you to celebrate Giving Tuesday with us at a Tree Lighting & Giving Tuesday Party on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Upland Animal Shelter at 1275 San Bernardino Road.
