our covid-19 adoption process

Due to COVID-19 we are operating on an appointment only basis. To make an appointment you must first fill out an online adoption application. It will take at least 24-48hours to process your application. Once your application is fully processed, we will reach out to you. Please understand that this is not only for everyone’s safety, it is to ensure that the animals in our care are matched with a lifestyle best suited for a successful relationship with their new families.

2020 Non Profits Hats Off Nominations

Dear Furry Friends Family:

I wanted to make you aware and share this nomination with each and every one of you.  This award is a reflection of OUR  hard work and YOUR support. We achieved this together.  I am immensely proud to lead this organization. Thank you for making this all possible. The following is my note to the community:

I am truly humbled and filled with immense gratitude to be nominated for 2020 Hats Off Nonprofit Award as “ Nonprofit Executive Of The Year “, and Furr Friends has been nominated as the “Nonprofit Of The Year" and "Community Collaborator of the Year" for our relationship with the Renewal Coalition through our Shelter to Service Dog Program. Thank you Nonprofits First!

2020 has been a year of triumph and heartache having achieved my dream to build a new, cutting edge facility for Furry Friends but unable to share it with our community due to the pandemic. As I was leading Furry Friends through these incredibly difficult times, I lost my best friend, mentor and long term chairman of the board Herb Baum followed by the sudden death of my husband, Bob who stood by my side for 27 years. These two men were my pillars of strength and I can still feel their presence. I share this nomination with them, my inspirational fellow nominees and with my entire Furry Friends Family. While this has been the most challenging year in my life, win or no win I am so appreciative of this honor. Thank you to all of my friends and supporters for without your help and support none of this would be possible.

Thank you
