Support Animal Welfare

Friends of Mexican Animal Welfare (FOMAW) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports animal welfare work in Mexico.  All donations to FOMAW are tax-deductible* and will be distributed to designated organizations and activities according to IRS regulations.

Donations can be made directly to FOMAW by check or via our online link to PayPal. There are other ways to help us, as well, like automatically earning a donation from IGive or Amazon Smile when you shop online.

*Tax statements are sent to donors at the beginning of each year in time for filing the previous year’s tax return.

Donate by Check

Checks may be made payable to Friends of Mexican Animal Welfare and mailed to:
23828 15th Avenue SE, #327
Bothell, WA 98021

Donate via PayPal

PayPal donations are made simply by selecting the DONATE button on each of our web pages. The link will take you to our PayPal account where you can complete your transaction, with or without your own PayPal account.

Shop Online to Donate

Shopping online is another way to help FOMAW. AmazonSmile and iGive are simple and automatic ways for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you.

Amazon Smile

When you shop at AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. Select this AmazonSmile link to get started.

In 2015, our first year as a designated charity with AmazonSmile, your shopping generated sufficient funds for us to perform six spay surgeries.


IGive is another online network that donates to Friends when you shop.  Select the iGive graphic for more information and to sign up.
