Donate now!

Generous, compassionate donors have saved thousands of animal lives by giving to Furry Friends Refuge, and with their help, thousands more will make their way into a loving forever home!

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, so donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law, and they all go directly to caring for pets in need.

Checks should be mailed to 3505 Mills Civic Parkway, West Des Moines, IA 50265. Please feel free to email with questions.

If you’re hosting a fundraiser for us and would like to send a thank-you note to participants, you can download a flat thank-you card (also great for social media!) or a quarter-fold card (one with our logo or one with a pet photo).

Thank you for saving animal lives!
