Meet our team! We're a group of passionate, hard working Alliance staff members from all corners of the organization: animal care, public veterinary services, grooming, and fundraising!
All of us has a story (or, if you will, a "tail") -- a story about why we work on behalf of animals each and every day. A story about animals we've loved and lost, animals we've helped, and animals we feel privileged to know. All of us has a reason why we're fundraising for Animal Friends Alliance. Stick around and get to know us-- you'll be glad you did.
Our first-ever virtual gala just wrapped. Now it’s time for Home Together, our special month-long celebration of the work that unites us: Ending homelessness & overpopulation for cats and dogs.
You're probably sticking close to home, so why not use this time to have some fun and do good - together - wherever you are in the world? Maybe get to know a little better fellow members of Animal Friends Alliance, the most passionate, capable bunch anywhere? We all know that 141,000+ animals helped in 14 years didn't "just happen." One way or another, YOU helped those wonderful animals. By joining our Home Together campaign, you have a chance to help even more animals: By helping us replace $200,000 in income lost due to Covid-19 so we can keep our lifesaving services flowing.
Now through Aug. 31, let's all pull together to keep finding families for dogs and cats. So everyone can continue accessing low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter and other essential veterinary care. So we can keep protecting community cats with trap-neuter-return and adoption for as many as possible (fluffy purritos are so hard to resist). So we can keep feeding dogs and cats in order to keep them safe - and home together - with people who care for them now, not risk homelessness or time in a shelter.
Staff, volunteers, adopters, clients, smart business supporters, family and friends, on your own or on a team, or with donations directly to this page - everyone's welcome to join the adventure, which will be interesting, informative and full of fantastic incentives! Stay tuned to this page for more info as things start rolling.
Covid-19 has changed life for everyone. It closed our public clinic for most of April and cancelled or redesigned fundraising plans for us and many of the organizations with which we work, but we're still providing services that matter for companion animals and their people, in large part because of your friendship and support. Always master pivoters, you should see how we pirouette now. We're like prima ballerinas! And, like we have been since 2006, we're still here for you, in good times, bad times, and all the in-between times.
No one knows when we'll be able to be together again like we were in early March, so let's make the most of this shared now. Let's have fun and keep building a better future for animals and people who need us, because they really do need all of us.
Thank you for making possible all the work we're relied on to do: Saving lives. Making families. Keeping families together. Preventing kittens and puppies from being born into homelessness.
Since we have to be at home, we think it's pretty wonderful that we get to be home, together, with you.
