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 in high-kill shelters in the south 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, help stop animal cruelty and neglect.
*If a dog is listed on Petfinder, they are still available and we are accepting applications. We approve applications on 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 contact us if interested in fostering.
1. Applicant completes an application.
2. FFLAR contacts references and vet.
3. Virtual Home Visit (video call) is conducted with potential adopter and FFLAR adoption team members. We strive to find the best fit for both adopter and dog.
4. If approved, a Meet and Greet is scheduled or transport pickup is confirmed. (Most of our dogs are in foster homes within the PA, NJ,NY area. Others arrive on transport from shelters in Texas and Tennessee.)
5. Adopter gets a new "Friend for Life" and a pup has been saved.
