Welcome to Furever Friends Rescue!

Furever Friends Rescue was started to provide pet owners with an answer to one question: What happens to my animals if something happens to me?

Visitors can find adoptable cats and dogs at our four adoption centers, open daily. Pet owners who need to give up their pets for reasons related to our mission (death, illness, moving to assisted living or hospice) as well as owners who need to surrender pets for other reasons will find instructions on our surrender page.

Volunteer of the Month - Eric

When I moved to the Valley, I searched for an organization I could volunteer with. I hadn't been active in the community in my previous city and wanted to change that. My experience with the shelter has been better than I could have ever hoped.

The staff and other volunteers are all incredible. Everyone is so kind and genuinely care about the animals. My favorite part of the week is getting off of work Friday and walking the dogs for a couple hours. The dogs are always excited to see me, and it makes me feel appreciated. I'm very happy that I found Furever Friends.
