Everyday the mission of Friends of Animals is completed with the help of donations from the public.

Friends of Animals is looking for "People Able and Willing" (P.A.W.) to organize and run fundraising events to support the shelter.
Do you have an idea for raising funds? Would you be Able and Willing to take yoiur idea and organize it into a fundraising event?


Did you know that 65% of the shelter's funds come from personal donations and fundraising events? We are NOT a county agency.
Our only income from municipalities comes from contracts to provide animal control and shelter for their stray animals.
What we receive from these municipalities is less than 25% of what it takes to run the shelter. We are constantly seeking new ways
to make ends meet. We know there are many animal lovers out there and that is why we need you to lend a helping P.A.W.
If you or your group are willing to run a fundraising event, contact Mary Nelson at upnorthanimalfriends@gmail.com or 218-391-6555.

These donations help to offset some of the financial burden that comes along with being a non-profit and caring for the orphaned, abandoned, and homeless animals that find their way our doors.
