Why Donate to our Animal Adoption Center?

Did you know that, on average, it costs approximately $38,000 per month to run our Gilbert animal adoption center, and that’s just the basic expenses. In addition we often have expensive medical bills from helping some of our very deserving rescues.

All donations go directly to the center and are completely tax-deductible! Help us give homeless animals another shot at happiness in a loving home. Even the smallest donations help, so give what you can. Our organization is powered by volunteers (with two full time, and one part time paid employee) which allows over 95% of every dollar donated to directly benefit the animals!

We Respect Your Privacy

Friends for Life Animal Rescue respects the privacy of our supporters and donors – we therefore do not share, sell, give away, or trade any contact information with any other organization or individual.  Be assured that when you adopt a dog or cat, or make a donation to Friends for Life, or provide an email address, you will not be contacted by anyone other than Friends for Life.  As always, thank you for your support of our animal adoption center – we couldn’t do what we do without you!

Set Up Your Donation - One Time or Recurring

Set up a recurring commitment to Friends for Life by making a monthly automatic debit from your account. With as little as $5 or $10 per month, you can make a difference in the lives of the animals and our community!  Join our movement!

If you can skip a few fancy cups of coffee, a few fast food meals, or a magazine or two each month, we want your help!  Sign up now for a recurring monthly donation – you won’t even feel it come out of your checkbook, but our dogs and cats will sure feel the love!

Donate your car

If you have a vehicle that you no longer need, you can donate it to our charity agent and they will sell it and send the proceeds to Friends for Life.
