Animal Friends Rescue Project (AFRP)

AFRP provides a safety net for approximately 1,200 dogs (through adoption and transport) and over 1000 cats each year. Local animal shelters partner with AFRP by calling upon us to rescue animals that do not stand a chance of survival in the shelter, providing medical care (including spay/neuter) and behavior training when necessary, and finally, placing the animals in good permanent homes.
