OUR MISSION

Furgiven Animal Sanctuary (FAS) is a nonprofit, no-kill organization that is dedicated to creating second, second-chance opportunities for overlooked dogs.

Our focus lies in partnering with public shelters to prevent the euthanasia of dogs and local no-kill shelters by transitioning their longterm, left-behind dogs to a sanctuary where they can be a priority regardless of age, breed, or ease of placement.

At FAS, we believe that providing a more intimate, individual atmosphere for dogs in these specific circumstances increases their chances of finding forever homes while promoting the animal-human bond within our community of the Greater Midsouth & Tri-State area.

In addition to being a sanctuary for dogs overlooked, FAS assists (through scheduled events) with free or discounted veterinary services, low-cost spay/neuter clinics, and training support services for current or future pet owners and advocates.

Our comprehensive adoption process and support services promote thoughtful, healthy relationships among animals and adopters and offer lifetime support to our residents. Animals in our care are spayed/neutered and receive all necessary treatments, vaccinations, and veterinary care for the duration of their time with us, regardless of adoption status.

One of the easiest ways to make a lasting impact is by including a bequest to Furgiven Animal Sanctuary in your will or trust. You can choose to leave either a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate after other distributions have been made. This not only helps provide essential support for our rescued animals, but it also reflects your commitment to animal welfare to your heirs. Additionally, a bequest could lower the amount of your taxable estate, potentially increasing the amount available to your loved ones.

Don’t delay this important task. Contact your estate planner today to make arrangements. Furgiven Animal Sanctuary thanks you in advance for your kindness and generosity!
