Friends of Upland Animal Shelter Launches Medical Care Fundraiser to Save Lives | New

UPLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 4, 2022–

Friends of Upland Animal Shelter invites the community to participate in its FURst Aid campaign for healthcare donations. With more than 2,200 animals on average entering the shelter each year, medical care is one of the shelter’s biggest expenses. Campaign participants provide much-needed support for surgeries, treatments, neutering and vaccinations of dogs, cats and other small animals.

The FURst Aid campaign includes monthly prizes and a grand raffle for donations in May, June and July as well as lots of fun activities including:

Lemon Festival

Friends will showcase the FURst Aid campaign at the Lemon Festival in historic downtown Upland, June 10-12. All attendees have the opportunity to participate in an on-site raffle of a Disney-themed basket with 2 Park Hopper tickets and many other prizes, as well as a Jurassic-themed photo opportunity.

Free event organized by friends

Friends is hosting a vintage car show, Sunday, June 26, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Upland Memorial Park. Admission is free for the event which features vehicles from the OldSkool ’66 Cruzers automobile club. Raffles to support the FURst aid campaign will be highlighted.

Andy Peterson, Chairman of the Board of Friends of Upland Animal Shelter, said, “Our medical donation campaign is timely this year. Friends recently received 80 cats and 1 dog that had been crowded together and were living in unsanitary and substandard conditions. Although this situation is difficult, donations to our FURst Aid campaign will be used to save and improve the lives of hoarded, abandoned and other unwanted animals.
