  • AFV is asking for help with their care of homeless cats by purchasing Tidy Cats litter (clumping or non-clumping) and/or Friskies Pate Classic canned food. “With so many cats and kittens being cared for at this time our supply is low,” says AFV caretakers.

Those interested can visit to view available animals, for more information or to make a gift that can be designated for litter or canned wet food with a personal note in the section provided. Also, please “Like” them on Facebook.

AFV wishes to thank everyone for their help with supporting the homeless.
