A little about our rescue

Funny Pitbull Portrait

Founded by Nancy Flint in 2009, FUR FRIENDS IN NEED lives up to its name by caring for dogs, cats, and rabbits in need.

We are a volunteer run and foster based nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization that focuses on Monmouth County, NJ and Staten Island, NY.

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals who are ailing, abused and abandoned in our community. All of the animals we save are placed in temporary foster homes where they are nourished and nurtured, sheltered and socialized. They are also spay/neutered and receive any medical care they might need before being placed in permanent adoptive homes.

We also work to educate the general public about the importance of spay/neutering their pets to help reduce the number of unwanted animals who end up in shelters. And we believe in the humane practice of TNR (trap, neuter and return) of feral cats in those communities with responsible caretakers.


We help our community by practicing TNR and routinely rescuing animals from our local shelters. 


To help limit the number of unwanted pets by spaying and neutering. 


We also would like to expand by adding cat and dog fosters to our network.  


We are a volunteer based rescue.  We rely on donations from the community to survive and continue to help animals in need
