Stand Up For Animals is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to support the needs of our state-of-the-art animal shelter, adoption center and regional outreach facility to promote the health and welfare of abandoned or lost pets and to educate and assist those who care for them.
“Our vision is to create a place where animals will be treated with compassion and dignity.”
We are proud to have celebrated our 10th Anniversary this past August! A huge shout out to Andrew, Jenn & the wonderful staff at The Cooked Goose for hosting us! SUFA is extremely humbled by their generosity and for their support throughout the years. We were thrilled to have so many of our wonderful supporters join us as we celebrated this wonderful milestone and to have their ongoing support of our mission. We feel grateful that we can contribute to keeping the animals healthy while they wait for their forever homes and that we can help provide them with the necessities to keep them safe and comfortable.
