WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF OUR NEW ADOPTION CENTER AT 3505 MILLS CIVIC PARKWAY IN WEST DES MOINES! Our adoption center at 1211 Grand will undergo renovation during 2021 after serving over 20,000 animals at that location.  The community spay clinic will continue to operate at 1209 Grand Ave in West Des Moines.

COVID: Please note a mask will be required to visit the adoption center.  Appointments are highly encouraged to minimize gathering sizes–those with adoption appointments will be given priority and reduced wait times in the event that occupancy needs to be limited.  Thank you for your help and patience as we navigate the current health crisis.

If you are wanting to schedule an appointment to meet one of the animals housed at the shelter you can book your appointment online here today!

Furry Friends encourages appointments for adoption of animals at the shelter but they are not requied.   If you are interested in adopting a specific animal through our organization, please check the listed location of the animal.  Animals housed in foster homes do require and advance appointment.  If the animal you are interested in is in foster care (most kittens), please email adoptions@furryfriendsrefuge.org with your phone number and potential animal you’d like to adopt.  Many of our fosters are happy to facilitate their own meetings with kittens through their facebook page Furry Friends Foster Families @FFRfosters

If you are wanting to schedule an appointment to meet one of the animals housed at the shelter you can book your appointment online here today!

If you have questions regarding intake please email adoptions@furryfriendsrefuge.org
