Advocates For Animal Rights (AFAR) is a 501c3 Companion Animal Rescue. AFAR has two locations: our first location is In the Beautiful State of Michigan, and our second location is in the Impressive State of Tennessee!

Our primary goal is to raise NO-KILL Companion Animal Sanctuary's at both sites, offering a safe haven to all homeless animals. They will have permanent, safe and loving place to live until a forever home for them is found. However, if a forever home is not readily available, the sanctuary will remain their home away from home until a forever home is found.



WE ADVOCATE- For Animals & Their Caregivers,

WE EDUCATE- On the Importance of Spaying or Neutering Your Animals,

WE CELEBRATE- The Lives of our Companion Animals and the Extraordinary Bond That We Share With Them!

The Charitable Wedding Registry

The AFAR Charitable Wedding Registry is much like any bridal registry: It is offered as a convenience to the guest who is having a difficult time deciding on what to give the couple to commemorate their wedding. Usually the couple registers at a retail store and picks out gift preferences and the guests choose from that list of gift to purchase. The AFAR Charitable Wedding Registry is much the same, but instead of using a store to register their wishes, they encourage guests to commemorate their wedding by way of offering gifts to their specially chosen charity. There are many options for the couple to choose from. The couple may decide to:

  • Use a charitable donation as one of their options for their gift preference
  •  Register at the charity’s store, where a portion of the sales go to their intended charity
  • Make a charitable donation in their guests honor in lieu of purchasing wedding favors as a way of thanking them for sharing this special day with them
  •  Instruct their guests to make a monetary gift to their chosen charity in their honor where the entire amount will go to directly to their chosen charity
  • Thank their various wedding attendants by honoring them with a gift card. The couple purchases the gift card and the attendants select their favorite charity to donate the card
  •  And in lieu of a ‘dollar dance’ for the couple’s benefit, their favorite charity benefits in their stead

So, as you can see, there many ways for the couple to donate to their favorite charity. And we sure hope that AFAR will be one of your favorites (if not your favorite)!  What a wonderful way to commemorate your wedding!

It’s a good thing.
