Letter to our Supporters

Welcome to the Burke County Friends for Animals homepage! The Friends for Animals the Humane Society of Burke County began in the backyard of its founders, Toni and Ed Davis. The Organization has grown into one of the largest no kill shelters in Western NC.

We receive most of our intakes from the local animal control facility. We are literally pulling dogs off of death row and placing them into forever homes. Over the last 14 years, we have saved more than twelve thousand animals from euthanasia.

Once an animal is in our care it is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, and heartworm tested before going into its forever home. We believe in giving our animals the best chance at a happy healthy life.

Because of the huge over population of companion animals, we can match you with a variety of pets, including occasional purebreds.

We operate on adoption income, donations and grants. We receive no county, state, or federal funding.

Friends for Animals urges anyone thinking of adding to their family to please check out your local shelter. Also, please remember to spay and neuter your pets. There simply are not enough homes for them all.
