Our Mission

Friends of Linden Animal Shelter (FOLAS) is an all-volunteer non-profit animal rescue group formed in 2000. We are dedicated to finding lifelong, committed and loving homes for the many deserving animals that have lost their home.

We care for and find adoptive homes for unwanted previous pets or unclaimed strays regardless of the manner they arrive into our system. FOLAS has rescued thousands of dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, ferrets, iguanas, snakes and one pig, and have found homes for hundreds of homeless friends.

We promote spay/neuter of all companion animals and strive to educate the public on the importance of sterilization. All animals adopted through Friends of Linden Animal Shelter are vetted, vaccinated and spayed/neutered (if age appropriate).

FOLAS is in constant need of support from local residents to maintain the Linden Animal Shelter. We operate strictly by private donation in the form of monies, food, and supplies. All donations go wholly and directly to supporting the wonderful animals in our care.

Please help us help them!
