Read about us and our process here!
Friends Of Rescue was formed in 2017 with the aim of helping with the growing problem of unwanted and stray cats and dogs in the North West of Northern Ireland.
We are a foster based rescue, which means that our network of dedicated volunteers open their hearts and their homes to care for the animals in our care while we search for the perfect home for them. The animals who find themselves often come from less than ideal circumstances, so from the minute they arrive with us it’s vitally important to us to show them how life should be.
Our foster carers are the backbone of what we do and without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. To open your home to an animal, often with health issues, is a selfless act and one we are eternally grateful for.
We primarily operate on social media to share the stories of the animals we have in our care, and to fundraise. At our core is a small team of volunteers who manage various aspects of the overall running of the organisation, and all the social media activities, which is vital to us getting our message out.
The following we have built online and the support we continue to receive from the public is what allows us to keep doing what we do. What started as a small endeavour has grown year on year, to the point where we are able to rehome hundreds of animals each year to new, loving homes.
We now have a foster network right across the country and are able to help animals from all corners of Northern Ireland.
