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

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 pets, or to
make an appointment to meet them, email:  animalfriendsweb@yahoo.com
Damon, an 8 year old Husky, was owner surrendered to us back in February, and he had lived his life on a chain attached to a tree. He is an energetic and happy boy that now needs help to learn how to be a dog in indoor space. He is currently living at a boarding facility where he has his own kennel and a trainer has been able to spend time with him. Her evaluation indicates that he is a strong, happy boy who does not care for other male dogs, and she is not sure how he would be with a female dog. He has been neutered, heartworm tested and treated with prevention, updated on shots, and dewormed. Damon obviously needs a special home where love and patience abound, but we feel certain that he has the potential to be a wonderful family companion.
