At Adopt a Friend for Life…

We are dedicated to rescuing adoptable stray, abandoned and homeless cats and dogs. AFL was established in February 2005 and ever since then have offered an alternative to animal control shelters by housing the animals in foster homes until they can be placed for adoption into loving, permanent homes.

We are committed to reducing pet overpopulation by providing 100% spay/neuter for animals in our care and strive to build lifelong friendships that will enrich the human-animal bond. We are always in need of foster homes, if you are interested submit a volunteer application today.

Celebrating 17 years!

We're looking for.......

We are in immediate need of a few volunteers willing to assist our foster home parents with dog or cat sitting while they are unexpectedly called away from home or need respite time.  Depending on the situation the volunteer may need to keep the foster pet at their home for a day or two up to perhaps a week.  You will be trained as an AFL foster home volunteer. This is a great way to help animals in need on a short term basis.  Click on the link below to fill out a volunteer application or to find out more ways you can help….
