 Meet Mork!

Mork is a cutie that came to us from the Yuma Humane Society.  We can't figure out why he hasn't been adopted yet - he's such a fun guy!  Click this link to read all about him!



Meet Dovie!!

Dovie is a sweet older girl who is currently living at the shelter and would love a home of her own again. She tolerates other cats but she really wants all the attention to herself! Dovie is a sweet girl, who likes having your undivided attention. She takes up residence on your lap and, loves to be made-over and talked to, but she'll be content to sit in your lap and bathe. She's a sun-bather, too-give her a wide windowsill and a sunny day and she'll make your house echo with her purrs. Click on this link to see her page!

If You Have To Move....

Friends for Life Animal Rescue asks that if you find yourself in the position where you have to move, please check out the links on this page to find pet-friendly housing so that your best furry friends will not end up at a shelter.  Hopefully you will be able to find a new home that will allow your best four-legged friends to remain with you.
