True Friends Animal Welfare Center

True Friends Animal Welfare Center in Montrose is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter dedicated to improving the lives of our animal friends in Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties.

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.

True Friends provides a safe place for dogs and cats as they wait for their forever home. Their experienced and knowledgeable staff can help you find the right pet for you. You can also help by volunteering at the shelter or making a donation.
