Make a Difference

Because of the generosity of corporate sponsors, local businesses and individuals, we can continue our hands-on work that has saved and touched countless lives over the past decade.

Throughout the year, we are working on ways to raise the funds needed to further our mission. We actively submit grant applications, receive donations from people like you, businesses, and corporations with a love of animals. In addition, we hold annual fund raisers like our Golf Tournament with silent auction and annual Santa Paws photo shoot. We are always looking for new revenue streams, so if you have any ideas, drop us a line and share it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I help more animals?

Donating to That’s What Friends Are For, Inc., helps us continue our spay/neuter and animal rescue programs. Volunteer to foster puppies, dogs, cats or kittens to help socialize them and make them more adoptable. Additionally, you can write letters and make phone calls to our county commissioners, mayor and administrator, as well as letters to the editor, discussing the changes and improvements you believe are important. If they don’t hear from us, they think everything is good as it is.

Are there any pet food assistance programs?

Golden Harvest Food Bank receives donations of pet food for pets of people in need.

I found a dog or a cat, what should I do?

Take pet to a vet and get a free scan to see if there is a microchip. Take a few pictures to make a flyer to post in the neighborhood. Go door to door and ask if anyone recognized the animal. Post pictures and your contact info on Facebook and tag Lorna Barrett to reach a larger audience. Post on the various lost or found animal facebook pages. Call vet offices and animal control in the area to see if they have had calls about an animal with this description.
