Special Animal Friends and Rescue, Inc (SAFARI)

Special Animal Friends and Rescue, Inc, is a non-profit, no-kill organization formed to rescue, protect and re-home dogs. Our focus is on rescuing dogs from the streets, from shelters, and from homes where they are unwanted, and placing them into a foster home until we can find them the perfect family to adopt them. We believe every dog deserves a loving forever home.

Become a Foster Parent and Change the World.

Ok maybe you won't change the world, but we can promise you will change the world for your foster animal. You may be the difference between them surviving to find their forever home, and them becoming a statistic.  Fostering is an incredibly important step in a rescued animals journey to their forever home, and we are looking for wonderful, loving people that would be willing to share their home with a homeless animal. We need fosters for pregnant dogs (to help with whelping and foster the litter until they are weaned) and senior dogs, and everything in between(puppies, adults, large, small). SAFARI will provide you with a crate, food, the animal's vaccinations/vet care, our support, respect and gratitude. We ask that you provide love, attention, affection, and to bring them to our adoption event each weekend. Give an animal the gift of a loving, warm foster home to stay in while they await their forever home. The love and affection you get back from them, is priceless.
