Someday every animal will be cherished and cared for, but right now there are far too many that are not. Sometimes they are abandoned. Sometimes they are relinquished by their owners (for valid reasons or not.) Most times their situations are dire, and that's where we come in. We've made it our job to help pets that are in a bad situation but are otherwise good companion animals who just need to find their place in the world. We take them from desperate owners, from kill shelters in our own state and from other states, and from the streets. We see to their veterinary care, providing spay/neuter, vaccines, microchips, deworming and general healthcare. We place them in foster homes with people/kids/pets who lead normal lives so we can learn about their personalities and place them in homes where they will be appreciated and will flourish! We want to save more animals, which means we want to send them home to adopters. Our adoption process is designed to be simple and affordable, though we are all volunteers, not a huge corporate entity with a large staff, so please bear with us - we'd love to help you find a new furry friend! Our success depends on fosters and funding. If we have both, we can do some serious life-saving! Please email us at HomeFreeAnimalRescue@gmail.com if you would like to learn more about fostering/volunteering. We are always in need of financial assistance to offset the additional expenses involved in rescue including veterinary bills, training and boarding bills, and all the supplies we must have like leashes, collars, harnesses, dewormers and other medicines, weewee pads and cleaning supplies, toys, treats and food, etc. We gladly accept donations of these items (new and gently used) which can be dropped off at Fins & Feathers at 134 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ. If you need help rehoming your pet, please email a request. Since we rely on volunteers to care for homeless animals, it's hard for us to take in new pets on an immediate basis, but we can offer some guidance and we're always happy to post on our social media.
Location We are a foster-based rescue. we have no facility. to meet one of our pets, please email to set up a meet & greet.
What Our Clients Are Saying
"Our Bear came to us in April 2015. It was love at first sight and knew that he was the dog for our family. Thank you HFAR from the bottom of our hearts. The entire adoption process was smooth, I liked how all who were involved checked on the welfare of the dog in his transition into our home, and how devoted the rescue was in finding a good fit for their dogs."
