How you can help

The Friends for Animals is in constant need of various sundries and consumables. Much of what we use is donated by our friends and animal-lovers from all over. The rest we purchase with funds donated by you. We depend solely on donations; we receive no help from City, County or State.
Here are just a few ways you can do your part.

Sign Up for a Monthly Pledge:

You can specify any amount that you’d like. A lot of people pledging a small amount will add up and help with our ever-increasing expenses.
We will send you monthly reminders. This is a big money-maker for us and money that we can count on every month.
Please call the Shelter to sign up, Tuesday, and Thursday through Saturday, noon-3:00 p.m., 817-326-3647 – or email us at [email protected]

T-Shirts: For a $10 donation, receive one of our very cute T-shirts, available at the Shelter.
