We believe all living creatures are worthy of love and respect. We work very hard at placing our rescues in Forever Homes with their Forever Families. "The Definition of "Forever" from the dictionary: Without ever ending; eternally; to last forever; continually; incessantly; always; an endless or seemingly endless period of time.......

WHO WE ARE:
We are 501(c)3 Non-Profit and Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Licensed #SLT00073 no-kill rescue. Some of our animals are in foster homes and some are listed for families needing to place their pet. If we have a pet on our site that is a request from someone for placement please contact the number or email that will be listed in the pet's bio. If you have a pet you would like for us to help place email us with all the animal's information, including pictures. Please keep in mind that we are not a shelter so we may not always be able to take your pet. We will however place it on our webpage and do what we can to help you find the forever home.
OUR ADOPTION DAY EVENTS:
We go to Pecto in Ft Smith AR the first Saturday of each month. We also go to Petsmart in Ft Smith AR and Fayettville AR but not on any set date. Contact us to find out when we will be at one of the Petsmart locations.

All animals adopted are permanently placed. Under NO circumstances will ANY of the animals adopted from the Forever Friends Humane Society be used for fighting, laboratories, resale, abuse or neglect. These animals are adopted for the sole purpose of being in a "Forever" home with a "Forever" family....forever! We will give all animals their first set of shots, their first dose of worming and flea/tick preventative on intake and this will be up to date as they age before adopted. We cannot guarantee, nor can we be responsible for the health of your pet once you have adopted it. We will make sure they are given what is required and needed and fed a proper diet while in our care. If one comes to us with an obvious problem, we will take care of it immediately. Once the puppy or kitten reaches age that it can be altered this will be done before adoption. This is a state mandatory law that all animals adopted from a rescue must be spayed and/or neutered; if you do not plan on wanting this done, then do not plan on adopting a pet from us. We DO NOT allow declawing of ANY cat/kitten adopted from our organization. We feel it is cruel and inhumane to do this to any animal. If you are considering this operation on one of your pets please do extensive research before you put your pet through this extremely painful and unnecessary procedure.
If you see a pet that you are interested in the please contact us through email (see below) during the day. We all work day jobs and sometimes it is late when we get home, but we do have access to our computers all day! If you contact us by phone please remember to leave the name of the pet you are interested in and a call back number for the next morning.
