Furry Friends Animal Rescue (FFAR) is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization founded in 2013 dedicated to rescuing unwanted cats and dogs primarily from Animal Control facilities in the North Texas area, and finding them permanent, loving homes through their foster and adoption program. All animals in the FFAR program live in foster homes, where they are provided medical care and socialization, until they can be placed permanently. FFAR provides all necessary medical care for each animal, including: Age Appropriate Vaccinations, Deworming, Canine Heartworm Test, Feline Leukemia and Aids Test, Canine Heartworm Treatment (if necessary), Spaying & Neutering, Microchip, Any other medical treatment as deemed necessary by licensed veterinarian
Our current goals are to maintain our operating funds so we can continue to rescue homeless cats, dogs, kittens and puppies. Our adoption fees barely cover most routine medical expenses let alone emergency procedures. We have rescued expensive heartworm positive dogs as well as cats and dogs who have required tests and expensive treatments before being available for adoption. It is vital that we have the funds in place to support these medical necessities. In addition, during the spring and summer months our medical bills are exceptionally high due to the increased number of kittens we take in that almost always require extra medical in addition to the basic vetting.
Our long term goal is to raise money to allow the purchase of an adoption center which would be used to showcase our cats as well as provide temporary housing for rescued dogs and cats.
Another non-monetary immediate need, a huge need, is for
foster homes for cats and dogs. Each animal rescued by FFAR lives in a loving foster home and is guaranteed a place to stay for as long as that animal is in the foster program.
Our foster families open their hearts and homes to animals in need and offer them a safe and loving environment until they are adopted into their forever home. But we are limited in how many we can rescue by the number of foster homes.
