In September of 1975 a couple of animal lovers, Lil and Selena, thought that our area needed an animal shelter to rescue abused and abandoned cats and dogs. They hired several local contractors, eletricians and anyone else who was willing to help build our shelter. United Friends of Homeless Animals was born.
They built and attached the shelter to the house they had purchased and hired a shelter manager to care for the animals. They also had the incredible idea to open the thrift store (Trash and Treasure) to fund the shelter.
