Get Involved

As a non-profit, our every endeavor thrives thanks to the generosity of community members who donate funds, supplies, and time. There are many ways to support FVEAP, including fostering, volunteering, or contributing cash or in-kind gifts that help us carry out our life-saving mission.


We’re always on the lookout for animal enthusiasts to join our volunteer team, assisting in socializing, exercising, and training our cats.


Donations from the public are the heartbeat of our organization, enabling us to provide essential care for our animals. Our operations rely entirely on private gifts, adoption fees, and program contributions.


“Our cat, Jack, was diagnosed with a urinary tract blockage. The hospital said they had to clear it or he would die. My wife and I are still trying to recover from a financial crisis so we were unsure what to do. The ABC Veterinary Hospital told us about FVEAP and we contacted them right away. They could have said no but they didn’t. They said yes and agreed to help Jack. Without them, Jack would not be here today. He is recovering and doing well. Thank you FVEAP, we were blessed to have you.”

“Thank you soooo much for your help. Without your assistance, I lived in fear that my little Wheezer would not make it! Now he has a chance at a long, happy life filled with joy and love! I cannot thank you enough – words cannot express the gratitude that fills my heart and soul when I think of my Wheezer being able to breathe at last!!! He is the sweetest kitty and I know he would give you loud raspy purrs and heartfelt head butts of gratitude if he could. I am filled with joy and hope that cannot be measured. . . All of you at FVEAP are angels and I will think of you every day from now until the surgery, and again every day thereafter that my Wheezer can run and play and purr and sing like any other 3 year old kitty!”

– Heather & Wheezer

“I cannot thank you enough!!! I just sat here and finished crying because of my gratitude for having this weight lifted from my shoulders, and the fact that a complete stranger was willing to help me. I am so very thankful to you and your organization for helping me, kelping Levi, in out time of need. You are a huge blessing. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”

– Audra & Levi

“FVEAP really came through for me when my 6 mo. old kitty Kala was hit by a car. The vet said that I either had to spend $700. on surgery that may not be successful, $300. for amputation, or euthanasia, which was not an option because she is part of our family. I emailed FVEAP for help and they contacted me the same night. I am so grateful to them for helping me save Kala’s life.”

– Sherril & Kala
