Friends of the Animal Village
Friends of the Animal Village (FAV) is a volunteer-run, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. (Federal Tax ID# 300648659.) FAV's mission is to provide supplemental financial and promotional support to our local shelter, the Little Rock Animal Village. Through fundraising events, donations, and promotion, our ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the Village and increase adoptions.
The Animal Village is performing valuable work to benefit animals and the betterment of our community, and it can accomplish even more with additional funding, as well as with community awareness of its animals and programs. That is why Friends of the Animal Village exists. We are dedicated to strengthening the support network that helps the Animal Village thrive, broadening its activities, and seeing more animals find loving homes. We are run by a nine-member Board of Directors and have many regularly scheduled fundraising events throughout the year, a great merchandise store, and we stay actively involved in community events and efforts.
Help give a loving animal a new life!
FAV organizes several events and fundraisers each year in order to raise money for and promote the Little Rock Animal Village. Check out our events calendar to see what we have coming up!

We volunteer our time and efforts with the aim of generating as much community support as possible for the Little Rock Animal Village. Our work consists primarily of fundraising, the responsible management and use of funds raised, educating the public about animal welfare concerns and issues both locally and beyond, recruitment of volunteers, and most importantly, advocacy for and promotion of the thousands of animals served by LRAV each year.
