Furrever Friends Rescue & Volunteers, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
All donations are tax deductible
We receive no financial support from the municipal, county, state or federal governmental agencies, nor are we affiliated with any national organizations. We are able to do our work because of generous donations from individuals like you, adoption fees, and fundraisers.
We have no paid staff so the entirety of your donation is allocated to veterinary expenses and food that we provide to the cats and kittens in our care.
It is the policy of Furrever Friends Rescue & Volunteers, Inc. to respect the privacy of our donors and to ensure them that Furrever Friends will not share their personal information with any third party.

Estate & Planned Giving
In addition to making current gifts to Furrever Friends, consider making gifts that will benefit us in the future. Planned giving can be especially attractive if you want to benefit Furrever Friends, but you are concerned about having enough assets and income for you and your family during your lifetime.
There are numerous ways that you can accomplish planned giving. You can provide for a bequest to Furrever Friends Rescue & Volunteers, Inc. in your will or revocable living trust. The bequest can be of a particular asset, of a certain dollar amount or of a percentage of your estate. If you already have a will, you can add the bequest to the will with a codicil or amendment to your will. If you already have a revocable living trust, you can add the bequest to the trust with an amendment to the trust.
Life Insurance Beneficiary
Another way to leave a future gift to Furrever Friends is to designate Furrever Friends Rescue & Volunteers, Inc. as a beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds of a life insurance policy. You can contact your insurance company and ask it to send you a beneficiary designation form so you can indicate the gift. By designating Furrever Friends Rescue & Volunteers, Inc. as the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance contract, you can make a significantly larger gift than you may have been able to make from current assets.
Retirement Account Distributions
Distributions to individuals from retirement assets such as individual retirement accounts (IRAs), 401(K) plans and 403(b) plans are subject to income tax. If, however, Furrever Friends Rescue & Volunteers, Inc. is named as the beneficiary of all or a portion of the retirement account, the amount distributed directly to Furrever Friends is not subject to income tax. You should contact the administrator of your retirement account to obtain a beneficiary designation form.
You can also specifically designate Furrever Friends Rescue & Volunteers, Inc. as a beneficiary of a bank account, stock account or certificate of deposit. You should contact the financial institution at which the account is held to ask for the proper forms to make the beneficiary designation.
Host a Fundraiser
It takes more than time than love to run a rescue. Hosting a fundraiser to collect monetary donations or for the items on our rescue wish list helps to provide the care our kitties need until they find their forever homes.
