About FURS

FURS is an all-volunteer dog rescue and adoption group founded in 2001. Our grassroots, local organization is focused on careful, permanent adoptions of the dogs we rescue from euthanizing shelters and other high-risk situations. We rescue dogs of all ages and breeds and take in a high percentage of dogs needing medical treatment or who have special needs.

Our commitment to the FURS dogs lasts their lifetime and while we do all we can to ensure that every adoption is permanent, we will ALWAYS welcome a FURS “alumni” back, no matter how long ago they were adopted.
