A lot’s happening to make Appanoose County an Iowa leader in pet welfare! Since receiving IRS approval as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in August 2017, we have been working to find land and raise funds needed to build a local shelter where lost, abused and abandoned pets can receive great care — and get adopted into great homes! To succeed, we need your help! Working together, Appanoose County will become a truly pet-friendly place. At the heart of Furever Friends Rescue are hundreds of concerned citizens who want better for the dogs and cats of Appanoose County. Their compassion and support led to this county-wide effort to gain a high quality animal shelter.
