We sincerely thank you for helping us facilitate our objectives and further our mission. The Farley Foundation could not have made it this far without your generosity, whether in the form of a donation of time or money, or by adopting one of our animals. Still, our costs continue to increase in most expense areas and your financial help is critical to our future. On average, and accounting for all of our expenses, each rescued dog costs The Farley Foundation nearly $500 to complete the process we insist upon implementing. Our adoption fees only cover about fifty percent of those costs. The net difference is covered by donations.
We have accomplished quite a bit in two years and will do more only with your support. Thanks to you, over 250 animals will be enjoying the holidays with their families in forever homes. Please help us continue our efforts to positively impact the serious animal overpopulation crisis here in Moore County and elsewhere. The Farley Foundation’s objectives include promoting “no-kill” advocacy; preventing animal cruelty; encouraging animal welfare volunteerism; supporting spay, neuter and pet identification programs; and working with other local animal welfare organizations in achieving similar goals.
As the days slip by and the holidays draw ever near, please remember The Farley Foundation in your year-end charitable giving. To make a donation, simply mail your check payable to: The Farley Foundation, P.O. Box 606, West End, NC 27376.
John and Betsy Ficarro, Co-Founders
Our mission is to reduce and ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of homeless adoptable animals in Moore County and elsewhere in North Carolina by rescuing animals from public “kill” facilities; providing superior care at our facility through extensive socialization techniques and programs, thorough behavioral assessment and comprehensive veterinary services; and locating suitable permanent homes primarily through local adoption initiatives.
We also support the “no kill” shelter philosophy (to learn more, visit www.killnomore.org) and will undertake other animal welfare issues when appropriate, including assisting other local animal welfare organizations.
