About Our Rescue Group:

Welcome to Friends of Bay County Animal Rescue! We are a local group of volunteers that have come together to form a non-profit organization to assist Bay County in reducing the number of animals taken to or euthanized by shelters. We work very hard to help get animals adopted that might otherwise not have a chance.

Prospective volunteers, foster parents, and adopters
all must meet the criteria set forward by our group, in order to provide the best care for our animals. We also have guidelines that must be followed for safety of the volunteers and pets.

Due to the overpopulation of pets, spaying and neutering education is also a large focus for our group. Unfortunately, it is just not realistic to deem any shelter a no-kill shelter, because that isn't possible with the number of irresponsible pet owners that exist. Our goal in light of that, is to help decrease the pet population responsibly.

We will also work within the community to help pet owners that face taking their pets to Bay County Animal Control, or another animal shelter, by assisting them when possible and fostering and placing their animals in a new forever home, keeping their pet out of the shelter.

We will also assist with spays and neuters in the community as finances allow,

We have numerous programs in place such as Kritter Kupboard, a Pet Food Bank and a Senior Citizen Pet Matching program. You will find more information about all of them on our website.

Please join us in achieving our goals and allowing us to be successful in the community and finding as many pets homes as possible!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
