Who We Are

Friends Of Strays, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that operates as a no-kill animal shelter in Princeton, Illinois.  Founded in 1994 by a small group of dedicated volunteers who love animals, Friends of Strays Animal Shelter provides rescue, rehabilitation, shelter and adoption services for more than a thousand abandoned, neglected or abused animals annually, primarily dogs and cats. Friends of Strays also works with local veterinarians and animal control to curb the unnecessary killing of adoptable pets by taking those scheduled to be euthanized and caring for them until a new home can be found.
