Animal Welfare Friends Animal shelter in Monticello, IA

We are a non-profit organization out of Monticello, IA specializing in the care for dogs and cats that need us. Our care does not stay local, as we take transports from all over the United States, and adopt all over as well!

Our mission's primary focus is to help reduce the homeless pet population by finding homes for spayed/neutered pets, and helping educate WHY this process is so important, and the proper way to care for pets!

Shelter FAQs

We service ALL areas, as needed. Our focus has been here in Iowa, as puppy mills, and so many stray cats have been on the rise with loose restriction. To prevent unnecessary euthanasia, we pledge all of our resources to saving every animal we can!
