Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: We are a no-kill, all volunteer animal rescue organization founded in 2003. We work with area shelters to rescue domestic pets and to provide safe haven for these abandoned, abused, or unwanted domestic animals. All animals in our care are spayed or neutered and receive all vaccinations and if necessary, life saving or necessary medical attention. When these foster animals are emotionally and physically healed, we search for the correct human companion for each, ensuring a loving, permanent home. We educate the public on the correct and moral way to care for their animals, including the importance of spaying and neutering pets to help stop the flow of abandoned and unwanted animals in our shelters and community. Whenever possible, financial assistance is provided to responsible pet owners who wish to spay or neuter their pets but cannot afford to do so. We exhange information and work with other humane rescue organizations to help rescue abandoned and abused animals. We strive to educate our community about the pet overpopulation and the necessity of spay/neuter programs in helping to control this problem. Our organization strongly believes that all animals deserve respect and should be treated with dignity in all circumstances. We strive to have all people share this philosophy, creating a healthier and kinder community for humans and animals alike.

My mom founded this group, and I don't think we could have ever imagined that this group could have found such wonderful board members, officers, volunteers and fosters. I'm so proud to be a part of this group.

I became an adopter first. A little Pekenise stole my heart when I was going shopping at Target, right next door to PetCo where Furry Kids Refuge was doing their adoptions. They were such a neat group of people that I started fostering for them and have been doing so for over 3 years now. Watching a fostered dog grow and blossom, despite its previoius treatment, is one of the most rewarding things that I have experienced and I will continue to do it for as long as possible. FKR cares for their dogs no matter the cost.

I have had the joy of being the founder of Furry Kids' Refuge. I say this with complete honesty that this group would not be as wonderful and productive as it is without the foster homes, volunteers, members and public who support us on a daily basis. Furry Kids' Refuge has the most dedicated volunteers, foster families, members, adopters and donors. The individuals that support us are what make us strong & determined to make a difference in every animal that crosses our paths. WE are determined to do what is needed to ensure the health of every animal we take into our program, no matter the expense. Our group believes that every animal deserves respect, love, proper veterinary care, rehabilitation if needed and whatever is needed to help the animal become adoptable. We are their guardians.
