Our Mission

To significantly impact animal overpopulation through aggressive programs focusing on rescue, spay and neuter, adoptions, and education. 

What We Do

We are a privately supported, limited in-take no-kill, rescue organization located in Gilbert, Arizona. We receive no government financial support, and are powered by volunteers. If you’re looking to adopt a dog or adopt a cat in the Phoenix metro area, you’ve come to the right place! If you’re unable to adopt today, there are other ways you can help us and the animals we care for.

Adopt a Friend for Life

Did you know only 1 in 5 animals are adopted from a local adoption center? With your help, we can increase that statistic!

At Friends for Life, we’re committed to placing the right animal in the right home.
