TFAWC’s financial support comes from the generosity of caring individual like you!
With your help and generosity TFAWC has successfully adopted out thousands of animals bringing tremendous joy and happiness to the people who adopted them.

In December 2010 the journey began for the establishment of True Friends Animal Welfare Center. At that time a small group of concerned citizens were informed the Pennsylvania SPCA made the decision to close the Montrose Animal Shelter in March 2011. They immediately contacted the management of the PSPCA and negotiated an agreement that allowed for local residents of the community to take over management of the shelter. In April 2011 True Friends was born. True Friends management is a dedicated team with a driven purpose to keep our local shelter open for protecting the lives of our homeless animals.

The animal shelter located in Montrose, Pennsylvania was founded in the 1930’s. During its 80 years of existence it has saved the lives of thousands of animals and brought tremendous joy and happiness to the people who adopted them. Throughout the years the shelter has been a key asset to the community.
