Dear Friend,

It was a banner year for Animal Friends! Remaining committed to our progressive community programming, Animal Friends achieved significant success in 2017. We proudly impacted, engaged, enriched and saved more lives than ever before.

Animal Friends has never been satisfied with the status quo – especially when it comes to saving the lives of animals in crisis. With the opening of our Howard Ash Animal Wellness Center we have raised the bar, yet again, for humane programming in our region. We are now better equipped to not just reduce pet overpopulation – but to end it.

As we hurriedly prepared for the opening of the Howard Ash Animal Wellness Center, our entire organization accomplished so much – thousands of animals were placed into loving homes, hundreds of thousands of lives were affected through our extensive pet-focused, community programming and countless lives were saved from unwarranted euthanasia.

I’m thrilled to share this year’s Annual Report with you, because through your time, energy and gifts you have helped us to make this year so impactful for the pets and people of our region.

And, for that, I cannot thank you enough.

In appreciation,

David J. Swisher
President & Chief Executive Officer
