Friends of Estancia Valley Animals was formed in 2004. Our mission is help reduce the number of unwanted pets in our communities by providing low cost spay neuter options and educating the public about the importance of spay-neuter in keeping our community pets happy and healthy. Since our inception, we have helped with the cost of spaying and neutering of dogs and cats through our partnerships with local vets.
Recently, we started an "Emergency Medical Fund" for ill/injured animals. Our mission statement is: "To provide financial assistance to ill/injured animals that otherwise would have been euthanized".
As this part of our program grows, we hope to provide this assistance throughout the entire Estancia Valley for pets that are in need of emergency funding for illness or injury.

Some of our past events!
The Santa Paws photo event in 2017 helped us raise over $250 towards our medical emergency fund. Many thanks to the folks that helped: Clay and Diana Williams, owners of Church Street Market, Jan Parks, our AWESOME photographer, Mike Herig (Santa), and FEVA volunteers Faye Nieson, Susan Simons, Pat Burns, and Marion Ammerman
A huge Thank You goes out to the Edgewood branch of the Unitarian Church for donating $200.00 to FEVA. The money will be used in our ill and injured pets program and our spay-neuter program.
Anne Marie Silva is shown here presenting a check to Susan Simons, FEVA's executive director. We are so grateful to the congregation of the Unitarian Church-Edgewood branch, located at 1 Deanna Lane (just off of Dinkle), for their generosity. The Edgewood Unitarian Church is one of two small branches; the other being located in Socorro, NM. The main branch, with a congregation of over 800, is located in Albuquerque.
Thank you all for participating in this year's FEVA Marti Growl Event. Here are some of our favorite candid photos taken during the event:
Our December 23rd 2017 Pet Pantry was also a success. We distributed pet food to over 35 people. Local businesses that donated pet food and allowed us to place donation bins in their stores are: Old Mill Farm and Ranch Supply, Tractor Supply, The Frozen Yogurt Parlor, Country Critters, and the Hitchin' Post. Raks and Home Depot donated rolling bins. Perhaps the biggest thanks goes to Long Leash on Life in Albuquerque. These outstanding folks coordinated the 2017 Pet Food Drive, of which FEVA was a beneficiary, allowing us to distribute pet food to needy folks out here in the East Mountains and Estancia Valley. FEVA would also like to thank the Town of Edgewood for allowing us to use the Community Center for our Pet Pantry event
