After a decade of fundraising and planning, Animal Welfare Friends is proud to present Jones County’s very first animal shelter. Built on land purchased by AWF in 2012, the shelter sits just north of Monticello off Highway 151. Construction on the shelter began in March 2016, and is now complete!

We’re proud to invite everyone to our Grand Opening event on Saturday, October 15th from 10 am–4 pm & Sunday, October 16th from 1 pm–4 pm. The shelter is located at 22407 Business HWY 151, Monticello, Iowa.

We would also like to thank our many supporters for your part in reaching our goal! From cookies baked for bake sales, to cats and dogs fostered, to charitable donations made – every minute and cent of generosity has helped us reach our goal and make this shelter a reality.
