Our rescue might be new but behind it has many years of experience in rescue. Buddy & Friends Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization based in Pembroke, MA. We are not a shelter facility and rely solely on the backbone of our rescue, fosters. We exist to rescue, re-home, and rehabilitate homeless, unwanted, abused, and neglected pets and place them in loving forever homes. We educate the public on the importance of spaying/neutering and micro chipping their pets. We pull animals from McNairy Humane Society in TN. Each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats). Our end goal is the same of many other rescues to provide a furever happy home to our animals.
All donations to support the rescue efforts are tax deductible. Tax ID # 84-4752460
Sharing our animals that need to be adopted, sharing of your ideas, sharing your contacts or resources, donations big & small, are truly appreciated!
Thank you for helping us save these precious lives!!
Founded in 2020 by a experienced rescue team to get unwanted, abused animals forever homes and help our southern partner McNairy Humane Society,
Buddy is the CEO of our rescue. He was rescued from a hoarding situation from another rescue but not one of the good ones. Buddy had multiple health issues that would require life long care. We took one look at him and knew we needed to take him home. Buddy is special to us and really reminded us how many dogs are out there that still needed help. He is one of the most loving, gentle dogs there are. He loves any foster dog that walks through our door. Shows them the ropes of being a dog and that its ok to trust. His sister Snowball who came from an amazing rescue is one of them. McNairy Humane Society is our southern partner and what Tina does day in and day out is beyond words. She is truly an angel to the dogs. She is our partner and the true meaning to dog rescue. (Link below)
Rescue has consumed my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. The feeling of helping a helpless dog into their happy forever home is a feeling unlike any other.
Passionate about rescue & Mom to both Buddy & Snowball!
