Keep the shelter's doors open!

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Friends of Upland Animal Shelter, Inc., and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

We know this is a very difficult and unprecedented time for everyone, and hope that you are doing well. Unfortunately our animal shelter is not doing so well, and really needs help more than ever. Please help to keep their doors open for homeless animals. Despite financial trouble, the shelter continues to operate under a "no kill" philosophy that aims to save every adoptable pet. This means we do NOT euthanize animals, AND we transfer in hundreds of animals from high kill shelters that would otherwise have been euthanized due to overcrowding. To run the no kill non profit shelter the operating costs exceed $1.5 MILLION dollars. The shelter does not receive any funding from the surrounding cities and has to rely solely on donations. This past year the shelter had some especially deep heartbreaks come through its doors. A young cat, practically a kitten herself still was severely abused. Her owner kicked her so hard that her pelvis broke! Days later he surrendered her because he didn't want to pay for her medical bill, much less keep this family member. The pain was so unbearable for this young cat that she could not continue to nurse her kittens any longer. A foster had to bottle feed them as she recovered over the next two months. This major, life saving surgery costed $1900. These are the types of expenses that your donations make possible. Without a substantial medical fund these animals would die. Please help and give whatever you can to save the lives of these abused, unwanted, or for whatever unthinkable reason, homeless animals.

Please donate before 10/30/20 so they can plan their future, if there is one still. PLEASE!!!! THE ANIMALS NEED US!
