BECOME ONE OF OUR 'FABULOUS 500' FRIENDS
JUST $10.00 A MONTH . . .

Yes, just $10.00 each month from folks like you can help us by reducing the
amount of time we have to spend on fund raising activities!

With our limited number of volunteers and the increasing burden of hands-on time needed to care for the animals, fund raising, while a necessary function, is tremendously time consuming. 

We're looking for 500 FABULOUS FRIENDS who will help us with a $10.00 per month for 12 months donation.  Donations made by check can be sent to PO Box 452, Philippi WV 26416 or if you'd prefer to enroll in an automatic monthly donation program via PAYPAL, you can begin your enrollment by clicking on the button below.  You DO NOT need a PayPal account to use this feature.

YOUR SUPPORT FOR OUR 'FABULOUS 500' FUND RAISER WILL BE APPRECIATED MORE THAN YOU KNOW!

(All donations are tax deductible)
YOUR DONATION TODAY WILL HELP US CONTINUE
TO CARE FOR THE PETS TOMORROW!

HOME SWEET HOME!

What's the best day for our shelter volunteers?  It's the day when one of our 'fur kids' goes "Home Sweet Home"!
Cain, now named Hulk, waited patiently for several years before his forever family came along to take him home.  The expression on his face tells us that it was all worth the wait!  That's one HAPPY boy!

ADOPTING
SHELTER PETS WITH TRUST ISSUES

Shelter pets that exhibit shyness on meeting new people are very often overlooked for adoption, but people who are willing to invest some time and patience with these pets are rewarded with a lifetime of love and loyalty.

SPECIAL NEEDS CATS . . .
Callie, Cinder and Minnie are just 12 weeks old (as of 9/18/2017) and they are just as sweet and loving as they are cute.  However, they’re starting life as a “Special Needs” kitties.  All of them have tested positive for the Feline Leukemia virus, so they’ll need a home where they can stay indoors and be the only cat (or share a home with another “positive” kitty).  This virus is non-life threatening to them and definitely not contagious to people or dogs that might be in the home.  If these little sweethearts are not adopted, they’ll face living out their lives at our shelter---not something we want for them when they can offer a lifetime of love and happiness to the special people who choose one of them to be their cherished companion.
For more information about our Special Needs/Feature pets, or to
make an appointment to meet them, email:  animalfriendsweb@yahoo.com
ANIMAL FRIENDS ROVER RAFFLE
DRAWING EVENT!

And what an event it was!  Early evening activities included a Halloween parade and trick or treat time for costumed residents who stopped to visit with us prior to the main event.

Our "Rover" this year was a search dog named Jack, handled by his owner, Lisa Lepsch.  Jack wore his costume proudly as he deliberately and carefully sniffed his way through the pile of numbered balls until he found the three he felt were going to be perfect winners.

We owe a special debt of gratitude to the first and second place winners who graciously donated their winnings back to our organization!  Your kindness will be long remembered!

And, of course, a huge "Thank You!" to everyone who supported this event!
