Friends Of Upland Animal Shelter Inc
This nonprofit continually inspires me because it operates a municipal animal shelter in the City of Upland, without any direct government funding. It raises funds through donations, operating a thrift shop, and homeless animal adoptions from the Upland Animal Shelter. It also collaborates with many other local, regional, and national animal welfare organizations to transfer at-risk animals into the shelter it operates to give those animals a better chance. Partnerships include those with Best Friends Animal Society, ASPCA, San Bernardino County Animal Control Directors, Cal Animals, and many other local groups.
