Fundraiser by Andy Peterson : SAVE UPLAND ANIMAL SHELTER!
Andy Peterson, president of Friends of Upland Animal Shelter, added that the organization did not violate any laws.
ONTARIO >> When a pet’s adopted from the Upland Animal Services shelter the adoptive family gets more than a new best friend and limitless gratitude from the shelter team — they get a brand new, handmade, double-sided, fleece blanket for their newest family member.
Friends of Upland Animal Shelter is initiating a major fundraising program to ensure that this cut does not negatively affect the quality of care of homeless pets awaiting their forever homes at the shelter.
