Resolving to make things right for sick and abandoned animals

The Furry Friends' Board of Directors deeply appreciates your support in 2010! We look forward to working with you in 2011 to rescue animals in distress, rehabilitate them, and place them in loving, permanent homes. Every donation and every adoption makes a dramatic difference to sick and abandoned animals who come to the Furry Friends shelter. 


Take a look at our before & after photos to see the positive impact your support has had on vulnerable cats and kittens. If you haven't donated yet, or would like to contribute more, it's easy to do. Even more animals can be saved with your help. You can click on the "help our furry friends" button on the right column of our website, or visit our Donate page for details.

Sabrina was a feral cat who came to us undernourished, with an upper respiratory tract infection and an ulcer that threatened the loss of her eye. She was very afraid, but let us apply her eye cream and antibiotics four times a day. Her foster parents fell in love with her and adopted her. She's a wonderful pet and a great pal to her friend Twilight (also a rescued cat).

Finnigan and his littermates were so sick that they had to be kept in an intensive care room at the shelter. To help them get better faster, they were then placed into a foster home to get special round-the-clock attention and TLC. After weeks of nutritional supplements and gentle face washes, Finnigan and his siblings were adopted into loving homes.

Tim's mom was rescued by Furry Friends from an abusive home. She was skinny, pregnant and infested with fleas. Unfortunately, Tim was the runt of the litter and needed supplemental feeding from a bottle. In the end, he grew healthy and strong and lives happily at his adoptive home to this day.



Please be as generous as you can! Your donation can make a profound impact on the life of a sick and distressed animal. To read more stories about how vulnerable animals have found their "forever" homes, visit our Happy Tales page.
