The mission of Furry Friends Foster and Rescue Inc. is to save urgent dogs in high kill shelters, primarily in the State of Connecticut, and other pets in bad situations needing a new home. Further, our mission is to attend to the medical and behavioral needs of these animals and place them in wonderful, loving forever homes. In addition, we strive to educate the public about proper care of their pets, including encouraging spaying and neutering of all pets, providing information regarding low cost spay neuter options, and about programs that can help pet owners with limited resources to keep their pets in their home.
Our goal is to help you find a wonderful new family member! We work closely with you to ensure that the dog you adopt will be a wonderful match for your family's make-up and lifestyle. Our adoption and foster placement processes includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, a home visit, and a meet and greet with the dog and all family members and other pets.
Placement is considered on the basis of the best interests of the dog and the best fit with the family - we do not adopt on a "first come, first served" basis.
We do not transport our dogs outside of the state of CT. If you live outside of CT and are able to travel to us after an application is approved, with your family and other pets, for a meet and greet and to complete the adoption in CT if that goes well, you're welcome to apply to adopt one of our dogs, as long as you live in one of the New England states. We do not adopt our dogs long-distance, or outside of the New England area.
PLEASE NOTE: All of our dogs live in foster homes within the state of CT. We do not have a facility. For that reason we ask that you go through the application/approval process prior to a meet and greet, which is always part of our placement protocol. We do this because we try to keep our foster families' day to day lives s uninterrupted as possible. You can fill out an adoption application at our website.
