Mission: "What happens to my animals if something happens to me?" Furever Friends Rescue is a 501(c)(3) corporation that has been designed to answer this question. As a result we are helping to reduce the number of intakes and euthanasia in Maricopa and Pinal Counties by helping people with life changing circumstances find new homes for their beloved pets. Individuals facing assisted living, nursing homes, hospice or those dealing with the death of a loved one now have an option: to relinquish their pets to us directly where they will be put up for adoption bypassing public intake. When space permits we take animals from public intake facilities to help reduce the number of animals euthanized.
Results: We received our non-profit status on Feb 1, 2012 and since that time we have taken in over 835 animals and adopted out over 773. Each of these dogs or cats have been vetted which means they are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their vaccines and our cats have tested negative for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus. We will also take dogs and cats directly off the euthanasia list at the County facility when we have space and don't have enough animals that meet our stated mission.
Target demographics: Our target demographic is anyone wanting a pet and anyone who needs to relinquish a pet due to issues of illness or aging.
Direct beneficiaries per year: The individuals who must part with their pets are direct beneficiaries as are the people who adopt those relinquished pets.
Geographic areas served: We are currently operating in the state of Arizona but believe that our mission is one that would resonate nationally.
Programs: All of the animals we take in are spayed/neutered either by us or the owner which helps to lower the number of unwanted pets in the area. The financial burden of this falls upon the rescue and the veterinary bills are paid from the adoption fees charged.

My sister started volunteering for a small nonprofit startup in Arizona run by three women with only heart, passion and determination. I thought it was your average animal rescue until I began to understand their mission. Anyone who has pets has often worried, "What if something happens to me? What happens to them?" Well, Furever Friends Rescue was born to address that concern. They not only rescue dogs and cats, they give peace of mind to people facing life-altering issues such as entering nursing homes or confronting a life-threatening illness. They remove the burden of worry for the fate of their much beloved 4-legged companions. Furever Friends is there to say, don't worry, we'll take care of them and make sure they find a new warm loving home. That is a huge gift. When I fully understood this, I offered to help and was delighted and honored to become their first board member. I am proud of those three overworked but happy women, and all their committed volunteers. And I am proud to be affiliated with their work. Bravo!
