United Animal Friends
Rescue Non-Profit Saving Lives
United Animal Friends (UAF) is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 non-profit group founded in 2003. Our mission is to provide rescue programs and services to animals and those who care for them.
UAF works with other shelters and rescue organizations to save animals that are in high-risk situations. By fostering cats and dogs in our homes and at the UAF Rescue Ranch, we get to know their individual needs to ensure that their adoptive home is the best fit for the pet. Before adoption, we make sure that each animal is vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and given any other necessary medical treatment.
Providing Critical Services
In addition to finding new homes for homeless dogs and cats, UAF provides critical services for low-income residents of Yavapai County and their pets. Our Spay/Neuter Certificate Program, Community Pet Food Bank, and Emergency Medical Program help hundreds of people and pets each year. These community programs help keep pets healthy, happy, and with their loving families.
Recognizing that another reason dogs are surrendered to a shelter is due to behavioral issues, UAF also offers low-cost dog training classes to the public. By teaching owners how to communicate with their dogs using reward-based training and by teaching dogs that learning is fun, these classes strengthen the human-animal bond and make both owner and pet much happier.
