Mission

Friends of Russell County Animals cherishes the human-animal bond and recognizes that love for pets crosses all socioeconomic and ethnic boundaries. We believe that all people and pets, regardless of life circumstances, should have the opportunity to benefit from that relationship. Through donor and grant support, our outreach programs reduce overpopulation and local shelter intake by offering assistance in spay/neuter, wellness services, and alternatives to giving up a beloved pet.
