Plan to attend our Sixth Annual Chili Cookoff on March 28, at the Keg Stand Sports Bar in West Des Moines! It will be an afternoon of fun & 100% of the money goes to the shelter. We are having raffle items, silent auction items & free giveaways!
If you or your company are interested in donating a silent auction item or providing a monetary donation, please contact Nancy Boyd, at Nancy.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 515-321-7690.
Furry Friends Refuge is a non-profit, no kill animal shelter that provides spay and neutering, medical care, community education, and adoption to the West Des Moines & Des Moines metro area. We survive on volunteer/donor support. Last year we had a 96.4% live release rate, adopted 1500 animals, and provided low cost spay and neutering services to 2500 animals. Since our doors opened we have adopted 15,000 animals and have done 17,500 spay and neutering services. It costs $650 per day to run the shelters. $5 will feed a shelter dog for one week. $20 feeds all the shelter cats for 2 days. A no-kill community is one that does not euthanize healthy or treatable animals. This does not come without cost. We are in the process of expanding and building a new shelter in West Des Moines that will be located at 3505 Mills Civic Parkway. Every dollar counts and no donation is too small. We are a small but mighty group and I would appreciate anything you could do to help with our fundraising efforts.
