Fostered Animals




AFV has many programs that depend on donations from our supporters. From remembering the animals in your will to sponsoring our “Shelter Shuttle” van to saving your inkjet cartridges, we have an easy way for everyone to help the animals.

Make a Donation
Make a donation to the shelter by mailing a check or money order to AFV, 33751 Mission Trail,
Wildomar, CA 92595, or by printing and mailing the form at the bottom of this page. We will gladly send a gift acknowledgement to anyone you designate.

Wills, Bequests, and Planned Giving
Make a lasting gift to help the homeless animals. Remember AFV in your will, trust, or financial and insurance plans.

Corporate Sponsorship
Your company can sponsor
AFV in many ways. Sponsor a fundraising event, advertise your logo on our “Shelter Shuttle” van for $500 per year, and have your business cards and flyers included in every adoption packet. Please call Ellen Bilney at 951-674-0618 ext. 218 for more information on how your company can help save the animals!

Humane Education
Our humane educator visits local schools, community organizations, and events educating children, as well as adults, about humane treatment of animals. For more information about our humane education program click here.

Spay/Neuter Program
Pet overpopulation is at a crisis point. We realize that in order to save lives it is imperative that all pets be spayed and neutered. Through our spay/neuter program, we help members of our community who otherwise would not be able to afford to alter their pets. We also will transport pets to be spayed/neutered if guardians are unable to do so. For more information on our low cost spay/neuter subsidies and referral programs click here.

Buy-A-Brick, Build-A-Shelter
You still have time to contribute to the new southwest community shelter for the homeless animals of southwest Riverside County by participating in our Buy-A-Brick-Build-A-Shelter project. Your brick with your personal inscription will become a permanent part of the new shelter. Many donors choose to inscribe their bricks as memorials to beloved departed pets. Some choose to make them memorials to family members or friends who deeply loved animals during their lifetime, while others simply inscribe their own name as a declaration of their commitment to help animals in need. Inscribed bricks are also available as gifts. A gift acknowledgment can be sent to anyone a donor designates at the time of purchase. A brick donation of $50 includes an inscription of three lines of up to twenty characters each. (Please see form below to buy a brick.)

Food and Other Donations for the Animals
We gratefully accept food donations for the animals (please, no food with red dyes). Please consider donating the IAMS brand as it is the food served to the shelter pets and is for sale in Rascal's Boutique so adopters can continue feeding their new pets the same diet they are used to for their continued health and well being:

  • Dogs:
    Dry – Iams Proactive adult, small/toy breed and senior plus                                       
    Canned/Wet – Iams ground or chunk
  • Puppies:
    Dry- Iams Proactive, Healthy Naturals or Premium
    Canned/Wet – Iams ground or puppy chunks
  • Cats:
    Dry – Iams Proactive adult and mature adult
    Canned/Wet – filet, sauce or pate’
  • Kittens:
    Dry- Iams Proactive or Healthy Natural
    Canned/Wet – Healthy Kitten Pate’

The animals also need:

Kitty litter (for multiple cats)
Blankets and towels
Kong toys and peanut butter for afternoon treats
Laundry detergent
Dish detergent (not antibacterial)
34 gallon black trash bags/leaf bags for the oversized garbage cans on site
Interior and exterior clocks
Stand up vacuums with bags for bare floors and matts without padding
Velour blankets (These are not only comfy for the animals but do not capture the hair like fleece does. They also don't weigh as much as a wet towel, so speed up daily laundry times.)

Other ways to Help the Animals:

Spay or neuter your pets
Adopt a shelter pet
Speak out for the animals
Report animal cruelty
Become a foster parent
