Mission Statement

Furrever Grateful Rescue (FGR) is a small, volunteer run, 501c(3) nonprofit rescue group. We rescue homeless animals off the streets regardless of their age, breed, or looks--animals who have been abandoned, neglected, or were living as strays and were not claimed. We also rescue animals from high kill shelters in LA County at high risk of euthanasia with little to no rescue support.

ADOPTION MANTRA
Our goal is to provide personalized top-notch care for each animal we rescue. Every animal is important, and each one of them becomes part of the FGR family. We spend quality time with each feline to get to know their individual personalities, habits, and preferences which in turn, allows us to make the best furrever home match for years to come.

We look for dedicated pet owners who are committed to providing a furrever home, proper vet care, and plenty of love, time, and attention for the animal's lifetime.

100% SPAY/NEUTER POLICY
We are strong advocates of spay/neuter for ALL pets. As such, all of FGR's animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, even the young kittens and puppies. We believe that the only way to reduce pet overpopulation is to actively promote and practice spay/neuter for all pets. Studies show that pets that are spayed early have lower rates of cancer, disease, and don't exhibit typical gender-based tendencies (spraying, territorialism, running away to mate/fight).

TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN
We also support TNR which stands for trap-neuter-return for feral cats that are not domesticated and are best living on their own with managed caretakers. A feral cat is entitled to life, food, and shelter, and is no different than a domesticated cat other than lack of human socialization-- they are the same species. 80% of kittens and cats that end up homeless and in shelters are the offspring of homeless feral and stray cats that people dumped. We support caretakers of managed colonies, rescue kittens and tame cats from dangerous situations, and help the public do TNR on feral cats in their own communities and neighborhoods.

Description

We need volunteers to serve as foster parents for homeless dogs and cats, and to help with adoptions.
