Personal thanks to our wonderful WEBMASTER and friend, Steve. He has always been a dear friend to Paws For Friendship Incorporated and we sincerely thank him for making our website so easy to navigate and current! Steve is retired and lives in Tennessee!

We currently have a missing 'baby' please visit our Homeward Bound tab to see if YOU can help find him.

​Thank YOU!


 Operation Homeward Bound is back. We will add any missing baby, regardless of area, to this as long as we have all the details, photos and contact information. PLEASE know we removed it because after a baby was posted we never heard if it had been found or re-homed? Our goal is to help find these precious babies and cannot thank you enough for sharing their story with your friends and ask them to share the story. It is a very small world and you never know who may know where these little angels are. 

IF you are a Member PLEASE use only the GOLD donate button on the Membership Information page, thank you!
