Guardian Assistance Program

Our Guardian Assist program is provided to help you find and place your beloved dog into a new forever home, utilizing the Furry Friends Rescue, Petfinder.com, AdoptaPet.com and VirtualPetAdoptions.com websites (LOTS of traffic to these websites), advertising and adoption showcases.

Your dog needs to be social (people friendly), should be animal friendly and can be handled / petted. If you would like our assistance in this program, please email us at: info@furryfriendsrescue.org so we may contact you and schedule a time to meet. If you don't have email you can call but response will be delayed due to our busy schedules.

About Cats and Kittens

We do not offer guardian assist for cats or kittens to prevent possible contagious diseases at our showcases. Our volunteers focus on the rescue of cats/kittens from many animal shelters. Please see our Resource Page for list of other cat rescues.

Furry Friends Rescue will...

  • Post your dog(s) on our Guardian Assist Dogs page which receives lots of traffic.
  • Guide or refer you to vets and no cost spay/neuter clinics. All dogs must be vet examined, tested, vaccinated and spay/neuter prior to adoption.
  • Showcase the dog at one of our adoption showcases. We require that you be present at the showcase to help screen potential adopters and to answer questions.
