#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of generosity and unity, a day to come together and give back in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, no matter who or where we are.  You can make a difference for pets and people in your community by making a gift to Animal Friends Alliance between now and May 5.

Run Fur Fun: Spooktacular

Join us for our annual family- and dog-friendly 5K race, Run Fur Fun!  This event takes place in the fall at New Belgium Brewing Company and features a multi-species Halloween costume contest, plus race awards, breakfast, pet-friendly vendors and more.  Registration opens in late summer.

Gala for Animals

Each year, Animal Friends Alliance hosts our flagship fundraising event, Gala for Animals.  This must-attend event includes a gourmet plated dinner, exciting live and silent auctions, stunning decor, and more―all for the benefit of the animals!  Ticket are on sale now.
