Friends of Hannah Rescue, Adoptions, and Sanctuary

Friends of Hannah was established to give a name and organization to our growing rescue and adoption interests. We have always taken in stray or unwanted animals, had them vaccinated, spayed or neutered and then found them loving, responsible homes. The Hairy Moose Pet Retreat just gave us the right kind of space and environment to do this on a larger scale.

Friends of Hannah is a state-chartered nonprofit entity with 501(c)3 status with the IRS. All donations are tax exempt. We receive no special funding or support; it is a charitable program funded entirely by the generosity and kindness of the owners, staff, customers, and friends of the Hairy Moose Pet Retreat. You can be certain that every penny that we take in goes directly to the care that our rescue dogs receive.

It is expensive to humanely take in, vaccinate, medicate, house and care for these animals. All dogs are vaccinated for Rabies, Distemper Combination (DHLPPC), and Bordetella; treated for internal parasites; cleared of heartworms; and receive monthly heartworm and flea prevention. Additionally, all dogs are either spayed or neutered as soon as they are deemed old enough by our veterinarians.

You can help us help more animals by sponsoring all or some portion of their medical care. We always have several dogs in need of a good home. Spread the word, if you know of someone thinking about adding a dog to their family. Most importantly, encourage everyone that you know to have their pets spayed or neutered. The pet overpopulation problem is too large for us to "adopt" our way out of it. Please, spay or neuter your pet.
