Lend a helping paw to shelter pets!

Furry Friends Refuge is the Des Moines area's first and only open-admission no-kill community — a place that takes in ALL animals from the towns it serves, puts them up for adoption, and never euthanizes for space.

On an average day, that means about 200 pets of all ages and need levels are receiving food, medical care, and housing. 

What better way to honor your Furry Friends alum (or any other pet) than to help care for those still in a shelter?

Campaign Details

Furry Friends Refuge is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and relies heavily on the compassion of volunteers and donors.

Since 2008, it has found homes for over 7,200 pets, and since 2013, it has released 95 percent of animals alive, including those that would be destined for euthanasia at a traditional shelter (such as dogs with behavior challenges, pets with ringworm, cats with FIV or feline leukemia, and animals with other treatable long-term conditions).

This year, intakes are up about 15% from the previous high, so we need you — and your friends and family — more than ever to save these pets!

All donations go directly to caring for the animals in need. You can view our statistics and finances on our website as well as check us out on GuideStar.
