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 adopted 4 Weimeraners through FFP and have had an excellent experience every time. Thank goodness for Diane Monahan and all the other FFP staff who work so hard to find forever homes for hundreds and hundreds of beautiful dogs who just want to be loved. Thank you for all the lives you've saved and all the joy you've brought to the rescued dogs and their newfound families.

My parents adopted their first Weimaraner from Friends for Pets over 25 years ago. Since then, they have adopted two more, and my husband and I have adopted one. Diane and her team truly care about these beautiful dogs, and make sure that they are placed in a family that will love and care for them for the rest of their lives. They make sure each dog placed is a good fit for the family, and vice versa. I can't say enough what a wonderful organization this is!

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!
