About Us

Adopting A Friend

Application and Deposit Information 

Some dogs are fostered locally & some are fostered outside New England & need to be transported. We have no facilities so all dogs are in individual foster homes. We rescue our dogs all across the country & since we do not have enough foster homes locally we must let them stay close to where we rescue them until we can find a permanent home or available foster home in the Northeast. We do have a paid ground transport which can transport the dogs to the northeast.  

 Adoption Process

When you find a dog you would like to adopt:

The first step is to please complete a NO CHARGE online application: FOHA Adoption Application.

(This will bring you to the FOHA Website, www.fohari.org )
The next step if you want to proceed with adopting is to please submit a donation deposit of $200 securely via PayPal: Donate.

E-mail address to use for deposit (which is applied toward total donation) is:  friendsoha@yahoo.com.  

Normally we do not process applications unless a specific dog is selected, along with submitting a deposit of $200 using our Paypal Donate link.  Please understand we are all volunteers with limited resources - your deposit tells us you are serious.

Who We Are

We rescue small dogs with big hearts! We are a volunteer group that helps primarily Boston Terriers, Boston mixes and other small dogs when resources permit. We rescue locally and all around the country - if our help is needed. 

Please check our website for an accurate listing of our available dogs, & events where you can meet the dog. If you are wanting more information on a particular dog, please email the email address in the dog's bio. In most cases this is the foster parent.

FOHARI – Dedicated to Rescuing Small Dogs & Saving them From Kill Shelters Connecting Homeless Pets to Loving Parents and Great Homes

We rescue small dogs with big hearts.  We are a non profit volunteer group that helps rescue and save Boston Terriers, Boston mixes and other small dogs, when resources permit, from kill shelters both locally and afar. We rescue locally and all around the country if our help is needed. Check out our Available Dogs page to see a current listing of dogs in need of homes that are waiting to be adopted.

Friends of Homeless Animals, INC of Rhode Island (FOHARI) was founded on the mission to ‘Help dogs in need’ not only in New England, but everywhere. This does not mean we only rescue the young, cute adoptable puppies solely but we assist & rescue all kinds of dogs; seniors, dogs with special needs such as hearing loss, sight impairment or other handicaps. We rescue dogs who need forever homes and give them the assistance to finding loving parents who will accept them into their homes.

FOHA spends a major portion of our operating budget on vetting our dogs.  Not only do we vet to cure sick dogs or those in emergency situations, but we also spend money on each dog as it comes into our rescue. We are very strict about having all dogs spayed/neutered. We also will not just give the regular shots to our animals. We make sure all dogs are tested for Heart worm, and other common canine illnesses as well. When you adopt a pet from us, you can be sure your pup has been fully vetted and they are ready for adoption.
