Strengthening the great work of DuPage County Animal Care & Control
DuPage Animal Friends (a.k.a. Friends of DuPage County Animal Care & Control Foundation) is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 charitable organization. Our mission is to strengthen the lifesaving, compassionate and innovative initiatives at the county shelter. We partner with the shelter to understand the needs of our community's animals, providing financial resources and advocacy on their behalf.
Generous pet-loving donors like you support the great work of DuPage County Animal Care & Control. We simply connect the dots between you and saving animals' lives.
The foundation was founded by three friends in 2006. At the first meeting, the group donated the first $100. According to the Articles of Incorporation, the original purpose of the group was "...to support, in all endeavors the DuPage County Animal Care and Control...and to promote the humane care and treatment of animals."
By 2011, the Foundation quickly grew from that initial $100 donation to over $100,000. The group achieved this by conducting fundraisers and processing the natural flow of donations made by caring community members.
