Home with Us Until They’re Home with You.℠

Friends of Homeless Animals is the enduring standard for no-kill shelters, saving and improving lives one paw at a time. Your generous support makes it possible for homeless dogs and cats to get a second chance at life and love. Founded in 1973 as one of the earliest no-kill nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal shelters, our dedicated donors, volunteers, and staff have saved the lives of over 16,000 dogs and cats.


FOHA is unique among animal rescues. Here's why:

Our strict no-kill policies.

The quality and extent of veterinary care we provide.

Our lifetime return policy for all animals adopted.

Our unique communal catteries, including one for FIV+ cats.

The dedication of our onsite staff and volunteers.

The size and quality of our facilities, with over 40 acres of walking trails and 3 fenced play yards.

Our “Villages” where our senior and long-term residents enjoy individual furnished, heated and air-conditioned houses with a private front/ back yard. We offer incentives, via our senior care plan, for potential adopters willing to take in older animals.

We have many ways for you to support our dogs and cats waiting for their forever homes.
