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.

We thank you for caring for them till the came to us. We know that Weimaraners & Dals too ;-) may not be for everyone or every household but they are for us.

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
