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.
