What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Idaho Panhandle and Spokane area is home to hundreds of thousands of unwanted dogs and cats. Our shelters are at capacity and then some. Some people, not knowing what to do with a dog or cat they can no longer keep, make the decision to dump them on a county road and hope they make their way to a kind person who will take them in. Most times this is not the case. Coyotes, starvation, dehydration and exposure finish many off, and motor vehicles unfortunately can’t always stop when a dog or cat runs in front of them. These animals suffer a miserable and painful death as a result. That’s where The Furry Farm Rescue steps in. The Furry Farm Rescue was formed to assist the people who cannot afford the shelter surrender fee and are considering abandoning their animal, as well as supporting our local shelters by taking on dogs and cats that may be a little harder to adopt due to age, breed, health, or training issues.

Reduction of Abandon Dogs in our Community

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Furry Farm Rescue is here for our community, who cannot afford the shelter surrender fee and are considering abandoning their animal, as well as supporting our local shelters by taking on dogs and cats that may be a little harder to adopt due to age, breed, health, or training issues.

Teaming with other local rescues, shelters, and local agencies, the Furry Farm is taking in animals at risk of euthanasia, or even being dumped in our woods, by having a open door to all breeds, ages, medical issues, and behavioral needs. We are here for our community, to help educate and to help them in their time of need. We believe in treating our community with respect, and focus on how we can help instead of shaming them. We may not always be able to help, but we will always offer other resources and possible solutions through our collaboration and community involvement.

In our first years, the rescue has taken in over 300 dogs, cats, goats, and horse and rabbit or two. We have place these precious and deserving beings into permanent adoptive families, with a 0.5% return rate. This has been accomplished through a thorough adoption program, including multiple meet and greets to facilitate the decision of a forever adoption.

Our ability to help those with medical and behavior needs and to find amazing homes and have a near zero return rate sets our organization apart. This has been accomplished through using training, our awesome veterinarian partners, and the fabulous ffr adoption program, including multiple meet and greets to facilitate the decision of a forever adoption. The vision of the farm, is to expand our help to assist our local farm animals in need along with household pets.
