About Us

Friends Furever Animal Rescue, Inc. is an all-volunteer, foster-based 501(c)3 non-profit rescue, founded by Dave Wright on February 5th, 2015 in Jerome, Idaho.

We are committed to helping homeless, abandoned, and at-risk animals find happy, furever homes!  We refuse to turn a blind eye when it comes to neglected, abandoned, and abused animals.   With your help, we pull animals from shelters who have received a death sentence, rescue animals from owners who surrender their pets for various reasons and often even go to the extremes of humanely trapping animals that find themselves frightened and abandoned out on the streets alone.  We also rehab behavior-challenged dogs.  The rescue originated in the Magic Valley, but because of the need, it has expanded to include the Treasure Valley.

The rescue is comprised of a small, core team of dedicated volunteers and dozens of other volunteers who willingly foster, transport, dog-walk, or assist with vaccines and microchips.  Somehow, we manage between 50 and 100 dogs at any given time.  

The needs of animals in our care are met without a second thought.  These needs include vaccinations, microchips, spay/neuter, and basic medical care. We also provide our foster home families with financial support for food, toys, and continued medical care.  Our #1 goal, no matter what it takes or how difficult the struggles, is to make SURE that our rescues are as healthy as possible so they can be as HAPPY as possible.

The organization operates solely on donations.  Every little bit helps.  We are so grateful for our partners and supporters who are part of the team ensuring this non-profit organization continues running and keeps our rescues healthy, safe, and happy.  


Our donors are the "Knights in Shining Armor" of this rescue as you are the ones that make rescue possible.  You are loved and applauded in every single success story we share, and we have A LOT of success stories because of your generosity!
