Friends for Life Animal Rescue Tri-State

Paramus, NJ

Our Mission

Friends for Life Animal Rescue is a non-profit, 501(c)3, foster based, volunteer run rescue with foster homes in the Tri-state (PA, NJ, NY) area.

Our focus is to save the lives of dogs and puppies from the streets and from high-kill shelters in the south, especially Texas, and local owner surrenders.

Our mission is to place unwanted and in-danger animals in homes, no matter age or breed. To educate the public, and help stop animal cruelty and neglect.

Extra Info.-
*If a dog is listed on Petfinder, they are still available, and we accept applications. We approve applications on the best fit for both dog and family.
*We take our best guess on breed and size when fully grown.
* Our dogs are adopted from their foster home or straight from transport from kill shelters in the south.
*We always need foster homes so we can continue to save dogs. Please get in touch with us if you are interested in fostering.

Adoption Policy

1. Applicant completes an application.
