Pets waiting for adoption--This is just a fraction of the pets available

Can You Help?

Friends of Pets is an all-volunteer organization. We are seeking individuals who are interested in helping homeless animals in the Summit County, Ohio, area. We are currently in need of families who are willing to temporarily open up their homes to a cat or dog waiting for their "forever homes". Friends of Pets is in the process of re-structuring our dog foster program and is actively seeking loving dog foster homes. Our situation has recently changed and we in urgent need good dog fosters. If you would like to become a dog foster, please email us at Even if you cannot foster a pet, there are many other volunteer positions available. You can volunteer from a couple of hours a month to several hours a week, the choice is up to you! Please contact us for more information.

Who We Are

We are an all-volunteer organization that was formed as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 1995. Since that time, we have rescued and spayed/neutered more than 6000 animals. All animals receive loving care in volunteers' homes. Animals live freely in their environment and receive veterinarian care and lots of love and attention.

Adopting A Friend

The adoption donation fee includes spay / neuter and vaccinations. All dogs are tested for heartworm, and cats are tested for feline leukemia/aids. Friends of Pets carefully screens potential adopters, ensuring that animal and adoptive family are a good match. Through an indepth screening process, adopters must prove that they will provide quality homes for our pets.

Come Visit Us!

Friends of Pets does not have a shelter. Our animals are shown throughout the week at area PetsMart stores. Adoption counselors are available to help you select the pet that is right for you and your family at the Chapel Hill store in Akron and Montrose store in Fairlawn on Saturday and Sunday, usually from 12:00 - 4:00. Animals can also be seen by private appointments in the fosters' homes.
