Animal Welfare Friends

Building a Legacy One Brick at a Time

ANIMAL WELFARE FRIENDS OF IOWA was founded in 2003. It is an organization dedicated to saving cats and dogs from being euthanized and placing them in their Forever Home.

As of 1/2021 AWF has saved 1071 dogs and 439 cats from being euthanized.

All our dogs and cats are tested for common parasites, then receive immunizations, heartworm medication and spay or neutering before adoption. When boarding the animal due to lack of foster homes we pay $15.00 per day. Several AWF animals have received additional necessary veterinary care, including surgery or therapy, to save and/or improve their quality of life.We also arrange temporary boarding care for many homeless animals with families who open their hearts and homes to offer temporary care for the animals until we can locate a Forever Home for them.

Shelter is located at:
22407 Business HWY 151 Monticello, IA 52310

Our goal amount for building the shelter is $525,000 – and we are halfway there with $246,500 so far! But we have a long way to go to meet all of our goals.
