Our Mission

Furry Friends Rescue (FFR) is an all-volunteer non-profit Bay Area companion animal rescue organization comprised entirely of experienced volunteers who collectively have rescued thousands of companion animals and placed them in forever-loving homes.

United and inspired by our compassion for all animals, we focus our talents on saving dogs and cats of all ages (babies to senior), all breed types, special medical/behavior needs, and unadopted dogs and cats on "Put To Sleep" lists (PTS) from Northern California animal shelters. Each rescued animal is provided veterinary care and then lives in volunteer foster homes where they get TLC and basic home training. Most of our dogs and cats are well-behaved and are ready for adoption. A few may need special care to recuperate from medical, mental, or physical neglect/abuse; or to regain their confidence and trust in people.

We were founded in November 1998. Before forming FFR, the core team of experienced and determined volunteers rescued a total of 450 dogs and cats and placed them into loving, permanent homes.

Since November 1998, we have saved over 13,000 animals, and the numbers are growing daily—along with 6000+ Guardian, Shelter & Rescue Assists! Our volunteer home foster about 120 dogs and cats (of all ages, from young to senior and special medical needs) year-round. We rescue and find forever homes for about 1000 animals per year. Please see some of our Purple Heart "Miracle Club" animals.
