About Us

In September 2007 a group of individuals from local animal welfare agencies began meeting to discuss ways we could partner with Springfield-Greene County Animal Control to address animal welfare issues. The result: Springfield Animal Advocacy Foundation (SAAF). Our dream: A no-kill community by 2018. We took a significant step towards that dream with the opening of SAAFhouse in August 2010. SAAFhouse is Missouri’s first Humane Alliance model spay/neuter clinic, providing the highest quality services at the lowest cost.

u SAAF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  All donations are tax deductible.

u Our mission:  Lead a collaborative effort in Greene County to improve animal welfare, promote accountability in pet ownership, and reduce animal overpopulation.
