Our Partners

Friends For Life Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are a volunteer-run, donation-based no-kill rescue operation. As such, we utilize many channels to generate the funds and supply donations that assist us in our ongoing efforts. We do not receive government funding, and depend solely on revenue generated from adoption fees, grants, special events, generous organizations, and private donors.

We are extremely grateful to our partners; the people/groups/ organizations who have significantly contributed to our mission, whether through their ongoing community services focused on animal health and well-being, or through their extraordinary efforts to raise funds or needed item donations by sponsoring our events or promoting their own events with Friends for Life Animal Rescue benefiting.

The Farmer's Dog

Friends for Life is pleased to say we were the first rescue organization The Farmer’s Dog has ever partnered with.  Brett and Jonathan are the founders of The Farmer’s Dog.

The company was born out of a need to find feeding solutions for their own sensitive dogs.  Their first batch was made in their own kitchen, and now dogs of all shapes and sizes are thriving on it.  With a small-but-mighty team, they expanded delivery nationwide — without sacrificing a crumb of the care, love, and quality of their first home-cooked batch.

Happy Tails Barkery

Our homemade recipes are analyzed by RL Food Testing Laboratories for quality and nutritional analysis and they are also AAFCO compliant. We NEVER add Corn, Preservatives, Salt, Sugar, Food Dyes, Fillers or any other yucky stuff!
