Animal Friends Rescue Project


AFRP is dedicated to finding good, permanent homes for stray, abandoned, injured and abused companion animals and to ending the pet overpopulation crisis through innovative, effective spay/neuter programs.

The Big Idea

Animal Friends Rescue Project helps to find loving homes for stray, abandoned, injured and abused animals, and aims to end the pet overpopulation crisis through innovative, effective spay and neuter programs. This organization is often the last chance for thousands of sick and injured animals in Monterey County. Their Last Chance Fund will be a meaningful resource when shelters and community members call, since they often have to pay for special surgeries to repair broken bones, medications to heal infections and lab tests to diagnose underlying conditions.

From the moment I adopted Bo, my life changed in the most positive ways. I have a very active life-style and Bo is always right by my side and ready to take on any adventure. I’m absolutely in love with Bo and am so grateful to everyone at AFRP, the kind individuals who funded his battle with parvo and to the foster parents who opened their home. Thank you!

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
