Your planned gift is a legacy of your love for dogs and cats. It will help save hundreds to thousands of abandoned, abused and neglected companion animals so they will get their miracle and new beginnings as a true loving family member for life! Thank you for your compassion and kindness for furry lives.

Guardian for Life - Pet Trust

We all love our pets. They depend on us to care and protect them for life. Each year thousands of dogs and cats are euthanized at shelters due to the death of their guardian. Please make sure to designate a guardian for your animals. Accidents and illness can happen at anytime at any age. Ensure your animal is protected for the rest of their life. If you cannot find a guardian, you can consider FFR.

Furry Friends Rescue Dogs & cats, Pudding, Donner, Nellie, Misty and Calypso

We home foster our rescues and provide sanctuary to over 100 dogs and cats year round. We take excellent care of them for life (like our own loved pets), and we would provide them the same loving care for your pet if you choose to make FFR the guardian of your pet. We will take care for your pet until we find him or her a loving family home for life like our own pets (adoption match, interview and home visit. We back up for life and take returns.) or they remain with us in a sanctuary foster home.

See some of our listed Sanctuary animals, Miracle Club, and Golden Dogs. Ensure a lifetime quality care and love for your pet. E-mail us at legacy@FurryFriendsRescue.org for more information and our FFR GUARDIAN FOR LIFE – Pet Trust, Pet Profile & Dossier.
