Helping Others Is What We Do

Why is helping others more important than ever?

There are close to 600,000 small nonprofits with total revenue less than $ 1 mil.  and only 3% of the overall US charitable giving goes to support animal organizations. (source:Giving USA).  We know how to make a sustainable difference in our nation.

1FUR1 is a 100% volunteer organization helping:

1FUR1 is a 501(c)(3) charity with a global mission and innovative approach:

  • We rescue at-risk service dog and animal assisted activity/therapy programs
  • We deliver win-win-win results for all: animals, people and non-profits in need
  • We create a life-long partnerships with grantees rather than one-time grants
