Furry Friends Refuge is a nonprofit humane organization serving the animals of West Des Moines, Urbandale, Clive, and Windsor Heights. Furry Friends is a 501(c)3 tax-deductible organization and has created the first no-kill community in the Des Moines metro area. Our adoption centers are located at 1211 Grand Ave. in West Des Moines and 1723 Grand Ave. in Des Moines.
Furry Friends seeks to assist all area animals in need through a variety of programs including adoptions, spay and neuter, community outreach, and humane education. Additionally, the organization has partnered with WestPet Animal Control to provide housing, reunification, and adoption programs for stray animals in West Des Moines, Clive, and Urbandale.
Furry Friends relies heavily on volunteers, and all donations go directly to the programs that serve the animals.
