Hey Everyone, 

My name is Orson. My name means “Bear Cub” for I love to play like a bear cub does. Always happy and always busy. Watch out for at times I am a bit mischievous. Any way you look at it, I am truly unique. My siblings, Auberon, Fawn, Raoul and myself were found on the side of the road in a gas station parking lot in a baby’s travel size play pen. Thus our litter is called the Roadkill group for if our rescuers had not found us and two other orphans, Jonas and Poe, we all would have been Roadkill. 

Now the road the gas station is on is a country highway next to a major intersection. Very busy.  No one knows where we came from or how we got to this rural area. We are so thankful we were found for a lot of puppies out there become bait for dogs being trained to fight.

But this is a thing of the past for us. Once we were taken away from this area, no more being hungry, full of worms and scared. Our foster mom has us safe and sound now. We have all the food we can eat, water we can drink, warm blanket, lots of love and attention. She has made us healthy and strong. I hear stories every night about other orphans from here who now have amazing families who want them and keep them safe. Someday I too want a family like this who will take me hiking, walking, snuggling and call me their best friend.

About Friends of Homeless Animals, Inc.(FOHA)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a volunteer group that are helping primarily Boston Terriers, Boston mixes and other small dogs when resources permit. We rescue locally and all around the country - if our need help is needed.
  • We do not have a shelter so there are no set visiting hours or place to visit. We foster all the dogs in foster homes in various locations.

    We need foster parents!

    We cannot save any dogs without volunteers to help foster our animals. Please help us to help them - become a foster parent.

    Donations are gladly accepted and appreciated.
    If you cannot adopt a dog, foster a dog or donate your time, we have made it easy for you to make a donation online.
    Donations can be made securely by Paypal:

  • Come Meet Our Pets...

    We do NOT have a shelter. All our dogs are fostered in individual homes. Meetings are by appointment only after you have completed our online application. THANKS!

    Our Adoption Process...

    Our dogs listed on Adopt a Pet all have initials following the name of the dog. The initials show the State: RI, CT, NJ, NY, etc. where these dogs are being fostered.
    If you see a dog with initials after the name of the dog, these are dogs that are not in our LOCAL area but transport will be arranged for those dogs. For example: W, CF, M, RH, etc.

    Please remember that we are ALL volunteers & will respond to you as quickly as we can in all communications. We are not paid volunteers and try to keep the phones and emails manned but sometimes there may be a lapse in time. We appreciate your patience.


    Step 1 - Complete an online application -

    Step 2 - Please reserve your dog by making a $200 deposit on Paypal -

    E-mail address to use for deposit (which is applied toward total donation) is:

    You can meet any of our local dogs with JUST an online application and NO deposit, but must be approved, etc. 1st in order to take your dog home.

    Step 3 - Let your references know that a volunteer will be contacting them.

    Step 4 - Once your references are contacted, a volunteer will be in touch to arrange your home visit.

    Step 5 - Once you have been approved, pick up information, balance due, and adoption contract will be e-mailed to you.

    Please remember our dogs generally all have a pull fee from a shelter, LOTS of vet costs for initial shots and tests, spay or neuter, and then transport costs to bring the dogs to our area. This is just the beginning of the costs for a rescue. We then depend on our volunteers to buy the dog food, we pay for any additional vetting costs and grooming for the dog. There are many costs and we depend on our adoption donations to HELP pay our costs. We are a non-profit charity 501(c)3 and depend on donations for rescuing our dogs. Most times, the adoption fee does not cover the costs associated with that dogs rescue costs.

    Donations are listed on each dog's description.

    References listed on your application will be checked prior to any meetings with a dog. We do require a HOME VISIT PRIOR to any adoption.

    Some dogs are local, but many are not - they are in various locations so it will not be possible to meet some of them before you adopt.

    We only will transport the dogs if you make a firm commitment and a $200 DEPOSIT as the paid transport is costly & difficult to arrange & we do not have enough foster homes.
