Where does your money go?

Throughout the year we will have:

  • to build a no-kill, no cage sanctuary in Cocoa
  • to construct homes for animals and administrative buildings on the site
  • food, bedding, toys and vet bills for animals in foster care
  • a few dozen heartworm positive dogs and cats requiring expensive treatment. heartworm treatment…$400 to $1,200
  • a few with seizure disorders. analysis and treatment…$500 to $4,000
  • many senior animals (10+ years), usually have more medical issues. add another $100 to the bill dozens that were not up-to-date with vaccinations. research and shots…$100 to $350
  • many with ear infections, eye infections and parasites, such as hookworms. diagnosis and meds…$150 to $400
  • animals that have orthopedic problems requiring surgery at the specialist (translation: VERY expensive); here’s a sample for a dog or cat: back surgery…$3,800 to $7,900
  • full litters of puppies and kittens from backyard breeding operations or from being dumped at a shelter. we try to obtain “multiples discounts” from our vets.
  • diabetic animals. diagnosis and treatments…$50 to ?

And the list goes on and on. As you can see, the majority of animals who come to Friends for Animals Sanctuary, Inc. (FFAS) are not “well cared for.” They come to us with medical conditions from neglect or abuse, with behavioral and emotional issues from the same, as strays, suffering from illness and injury — and all in need of love and attention, which we are happy to provide!

FFAS is a nonprofit, volunteer organization.

Your donation or subscription amount goes toward the care of animals, and also a portion may be allocated to our sanctuary building fund, depending on current animal needs and our medical vetting budget.

 

From time-to-time, you will see specific animals that are in need of their own specific funding, via a Donate specific button, a YouCare, a GoFundMe, or FundRazr online fundraising event that we use to acquire “over and above” emergency funding online.

 

An “indirect avenue” for you to help us, is through our Findinco account that connects to Amazon, with or without you being a member at Amazon. For every purchase you make at Amazon, they provide us with a little bit of funding! Here’s the link to start your Amazon shopping … FFAS Fundinco/Amazon Shopping
