Furry Friends has adopted the no-kill equation — the only proven way of creating a sustainable no-kill community. A part of any no-kill community is transparency. Our statistics are available on this page, and we are constantly working towards transparency communitywide so that the amount of need in our community can adequately be assessed.
Transparency also allows the community to evaluate programs and invest in the most effective and efficient solutions that provide all animals with a loving, responsible home.
