Phinney's Friends is a registered nonprofit that helps low-income people in Massachusetts keep their pets. We believe that the human-animal bond is a source of love, joy, comfort, and fulfillment for both people and pets. We do everything in our power to make sure animals and their beloved owners can stay together - we educate pet owners, take their animals to the vet, help pay vet bills, foster pets when owners are hospitalized, walk dogs and help care for pets on a regular basis.
