Furry Friends Refuge is honored to receive donations in memory or in honor of loved ones or pets, and we welcome the opportunity to let the special person or his/her survivors know of your generosity.

Acknowledgment letters include only the donor’s name and the fact that a gift was made, not the amount; if you wish to remain anonymous, just let us know.

Select yes under “This donation is a gift” on our online donation form so that you can fill in the recipient’s name and mailing address.

If you prefer to donate via check, please include the recipient’s name and address when you mail the check to 1211 Grand Ave., West Des Moines, IA 50265.

Or you can fill out our online acknowledgment form with information on who should receive word of your generosity and why.
