Each year, Animal Friends provides rescue, shelter and adoption services for more than 2,100 pets, including the lucky ones who are helped through the organization’s New Year’s Eve Rescue—the Ultimate Resolution.

On Dec. 31, 2015, Animal Friends staff and volunteers traveled to partner shelters and animal control facilities throughout the region and picked up 28 dogs and 15 cats that will now have a better chance to find their forever homes! After arriving at the shelter, all of the rescued pets received vaccinations, baths, grooming, and medical and behavioral evaluations, and were then scheduled to be spayed or neutered.

This year’s rescues were named for crayon colors, and include copper, cotton candy, fuchsia, denim and desert sand, among others. By saving these pets, Animal Friends has not only saved their lives, but has opened up kennel space at their former homes for more animals desperately awaiting a second chance.

To find out about these adoptees, as well as the other animals waiting for a home, visit Animal Friends at 562 Camp Horne Road or visit www.ThinkingOutsidetheCage.org.
