Events and Volunteerism

The easiest way to support the Friends Helping Friends Foundation is by showing up! We have a variety of events throughout the year helping to raise money and raise awareness for the care of animals at Cedar Rapids Animal Care and Control.

Many of these events are great for you and your pet, too, including microchip and vaccination clinics, fun run/walks, and open houses and Pet Fairs at Cedar Rapids Animal Care and Control.

Volunteers play a critical role at Cedar Rapids Animal Care & Control, assisting with animal care and facilitating adoptions. Help is always needed walking dogs, assisting with fundraising events, providing kennel or cattery support, and welcoming the community.

Join the board or a planning committee

How can you make the most impact?  It starts by joining a planning committee of The Friends Helping Friends Foundation, working with us on marketing, event planning, fundraising and strategic planning.  From there, we select new board members as board openings become available.

We are an active board, helping direct funding to gaps and needs at Cedar Rapids Animal Care and Control.  Being a board member includes participation at monthly meetings, community advocacy, fundraising, and a hands-on approach to our events and activities.

Take the first step by sending us an e-mail.
