Hi everyone! I've been a volunteer with Independent Animal Rescue for eight years. I've fostered kittens, trained new foster parents, volunteered at Petco, photographed many of our gorgeous cats and dogs, and joined the board of directors.

Independent Animal Rescue adopted out more than 430 cats and 215 dogs in 2018, and spayed or neutered more than 1,500 feral cats. The organization is volunteer-run, and receives no government funding.

India, my first IAR foster kitty. She was rescued from a rural county shelter with her 4 tiny kittens. All found great homes!

This year, the Great Human Race, one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, will feature a 5K run and a 5K community walk on Saturday, March 23 in Durham.  There are many ways you can help! IAR is looking for walkers, runners, fundraisers, and donors to help us achieve our fundraising goal of $25,000!
Please help save a life by donating today—no donation is too small!‬

IAR's volunteers work so hard to help the animals in need! Can you help me reach my fundraising goal?
