2015 - NEW START!
We recently changed our logo to better
reflect who we are as an organization.
So who are we as an organization?  Unlike many other Rescues, we are a small foster based
organization. We have dedicated foster "parent" volunteers who have our dogs or cats living in their
family homes while awaiting adoptions. These wonderful people provide safe, loving environments
while they learn about each animal's needs and personalities.  They provide invaluable insights
making it possible for us to match these deserving animals with their best "furever" home.

As someone looking to adopt, you will have the opportunity to talk directly with the foster "parent"
and arrange a meeting.  If an adoption is finalized, your new best friend will already be spayed or
neutered, micro chipped and will have received all appropriate shots, making the transition easier.  
Please check out our available dogs and cats for adoption.  
"From Foster to Furever Home"
was adopted by Best Friends Animal Society
where he has settled in wonderfully and made lots of
new dog and people friends.  We want to thank
everyone that has helped Griffin in his journey.
