Attend our activities
Furry Friends, with the help of supportive local businesses, hosts a variety of fundraisers and participates in several community events throughout the year. For the most up-to-date information on those activities, check out our events page on Facebook.
Coming up in the next few months:
♦ Holiday Paw-traits: You and your pet are invited to have your Christmas photo taken to benefit Furry Friends!
We are hosting two sessions: Saturday, Nov. 19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 20, from 1 to 5 p.m. Both take place at Furry Friends Community Spay Clinic, 1209 Grand Ave. in West Des Moines (next to the shelter).
