Welcome to Friends Forever Humane Society of Freeport
Friends Forever Humane Society is a non-profit organization focused on the welfare of companion animals.
Our shelter does not receive funding from city, county or state taxes. Founded in 1953, and thanks to our generous donors and volunteers, Friends Forever Humane Society has helped over 10,000 animals in need.
"Shelter dogs aren't broken. They've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write. The ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don't pity a shelter dog. Adopt one. And be proud to have their greatness by your side."
- From the Pedigree "Heroes" commercial
Our Mission is to...
- Provide a temporary home for stray, unwanted, and abused companion animals
- Educate the public in the humane care and treatment of animals
- Promote spaying and neutering to reduce pet overpopulation
- Promote animal welfare
Saving one pet won't change the world, but surely, the world will change for that one pet.
