Volunteer Spotlight on the Auction Committee

Volunteer Spotlight on the Auction Committee

The planning for the fall in person dinner auction goes on all year long. It takes many volunteers to make this auction a success. Lots of hours procuring the items, planning all the details, coming up with new ideas, finding supplies, creating the graphics, promoting the event, preparing the save the date and invitation mailings, meetings and so much more. All of this is done with volunteer effort.

Furry Friends Halfway House Now an Official Animal Shelter

Furry Friends Halfway House Now an Official Animal Shelter

Furry Friends has completed the final phase of changing the Halfway House use from Residential to Commercial\Business, making it an official animal shelter. One of the reasons we purchased the property is because it was already zoned Commercial. For it to meet City of Vancouver approved as a shelter, we needed to change the use of the structure itself from Residential to Commercial/Business.

Pet Abandonment

Pet Abandonment

Cat rescue is not all about cute kittens and cuddly cats. It is sick cats, abandoned cats, one year olds on their fourth litter of kittens, cats with diseases, and unfortunately dead kittens/cats.

There are many benefits to having a pet

There are many benefits to having a pet

Studies suggest that one very safe and effective form of stress/anxiety therapy, with absolutely no side effects, is to simply pet an animal! With stress and anxiety at an all time high, animals are our best “medicine.” Petting a furry friend for 10 minutes has proven effects on lowering our cortisol (stress hormone) levels. Not only are animals helping us, at the same time we are benefiting them by giving them the love and attention they want and deserve.

Furry Friends is a nonprofit cat adoption organization.
