Mission: The mission of United Animal Friends is to provide for the well-being of animals. Our goals are to expand spay/neuter, foster/adoption, and rescue programs in partnership with the community and other agencies. UAF is solution driven to raise awareness and encourage compassionate treatment of animals.
Geographic areas served: Yavapai County
Programs: Foster/adopt program united animal friends does not have a shelter facility. Most animals live in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted. In situations where an adoptable dog is at risk of being euthanized in an overcrowded shelter when no foster home is available, we may place them in temporary boarding until a foster home becomes available. United animal friends finds homes for approximately 400 cats and dogs each year.
community assistance - uaf provides all types of medical assistance to community pets including vaccines, dental treatment, and emergency medical needs. Uaf also helps provide animal food to those in need.
low-income spay/neuter certificate program this program helps low-income individuals have their companion animals altered at a very low cost. Participating veterinary clinics reduce their fees and uaf pays a portion so that the pet guardian is responsible for only a small share of the cost. When the need is great and funds allow, uaf pays all of the cost. Uaf helped provide spay/neuter assistance to 863 cats and dogs during 2014.
