About Furry Friends Rescue Center
Thank you for stopping by our website!
Our organization started in 2010 with Melissa and Hilary working around the clock to rescue several animals from local area shelters. From there, they realized they had a special bond in their love for animals and began devoting their lives to this passion. As things grew they began to need help and now we have a few volunteers on hand to help with fostering, accounting, online operations, events and cleaning up at the shelter!
Hilary works with and runs various rescues and helps raise funds, rehome and rescue animals every day. While she might be out of state physically, she is never far from our furry friends’ hearts who she has helped rescue. She has started No Kill Coalition and helps educate people on the practices of animal control and other kill shelters around the country.
Melissa owns and operates Hi-C Farms & Kennels where many of our furry friends live while they are in transition to their forever homes. She works every day to feed, care for and maintain the well being of many of our rescues and rarely gets a day off.
We have had many adventures. One time Melissa even rescued a pig (watch the video)! But our main goal is to find animals in high kill shelters and give them a second chance at life. Furry Friends Rescue Center provides a service to the community by reducing the cost of handling, processing and euthanizing these animals at the area animal controls.
