Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: During the 1980s, the Los Angeles County shelters were mandated to sell to medical research facilities. Numerous well-known organizations as well as small groups worked to buy out of the county shelters animals that were slated for experimentation. Friends For Pets Foundation was formed at this time for the purpose of not only saving the lives destined for laboratory tables but to make a difference in the way our society viewed these abandoned pets.

Programs: Our organization is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of abandoned dogs. To date we have provided services for over 3300 dogs and enriched many families in the process.

Friends For Pets is the most amazing rescue organization. They rescue every dog they possibly can, including those in terrible conditions - including from Mexico. No matter the dogs' problems, they work to fix them and show them the love they've been missing from most (or all) of their lives. They find fantastic homes for each of their rescues, and when, rarely, they're unable to find forever homes, the dogs are kept and loved forever. Friends For Pets is run by an amazing woman, Diane Monahan, whose heart and strength and understanding (she *knows* dogs!) makes this organization work the way it does.

friends for pets is a wonderful organization with caring and dedicated volunteers. They rescue Weimaraners and other needy dogs , from shelters , and also help with dogs whose owners are no longer able to care for them. They drive miles, provide medical care, shelter and safety.
Diane Monahan has devoted her life to these dogs. After the dogs are in rescue, FFP works hard to find permanent loving homes. They work hard to educate about the responsibilities of pet ownership. These are wonderful dedicated people who love these dogs, and want what's best for each and every dog.
They love each dog that comes to them and work hard to assure them a safe and much loved life.

We have adopted 2 Weimaraners from Friends for Pets Foundation. They take in some very challenging cases, and provide the animals with all the care they need. The committed volunteers walk the weims on Sundays and spend time with them each day while they get fed. They give them love, and sometimes it is the most love the dog has ever experienced in its life. They help them to become adoptable. They network with other Weim rescues, and are committed to helping the dogs find forever families, and do a great job of match making. I also donate so they can help rescue more Weims, and make a difference!

I have adopted 3 Weimaraners and 1 German Pointer over the past 18 years from FFP. Diane, the founder, is a tireless devotee to rescuing dogs and finding the right homes for them. Her love, dedication, and knowledge of this breed is extraordinary. I have done extensive volunteering at the shelter as well as donating money every year. I have seen her work first-hand and she is comitted to providing a safe environment for the dogs during their 'transition period' while they are awaiting their new life and home. Please donate to this charity so that they continue to have enough resources for rent, dog food, veterinary services, and all the expenses involved in saving companions from death at the shelters. - DV
