Furry Friends Rescue (FFR) is an all-volunteer non-profit Bay Area companion animal rescue organization, comprised entirely of experienced volunteers who collectively have rescued hundreds of companion animals and placed them in loving homes.
United and inspired by our compassion for all animals, we focus our talents on saving unadopted dogs and cats destined to be euthanized in Bay Area shelters. Each rescued animal is provided veterinary attention, including examination, immunizations and spay/neuter. Then the rescued dog or cat is placed into one of our safe haven foster homes where he receives lots of TLC and basic family member training. Most of our dogs and cats are well behaved and are ready for adoption. A few may need special care to recuperate from medical, mental or physical neglect/abuse; or to regain their confidence and trust in people.
We were founded in November 1998. Prior to forming FFR, the core team of experienced and determined volunteers rescued a combined total of 450 dogs and cats and placed into loving, permanent homes.
Since November 1998, we have saved over 12,000 animals and the numbers are growing every day—along with 6000+ Guardian, Shelter & Rescue Assists! Our volunteer home foster about 120 dogs and cats (of all ages from young to senior and special medical needs) year round. We rescue and find forever homes for about 1000 animals per year.
