Our Thanks

There are so many people who have contributed to the success of Friends For Life. Most importantly, our amazing volunteers and generous donors! There are also lots of businesses and community groups, as well as individuals, that have supported us and with this page we would like to showcase these wonderful people!

We would like to acknowledge the fantastic people who own Six Rivers Brewery in McKinleyville - Meredith, Thalia and Kurt - for their constant support of Friends for Life. They have helped us so much by donating food and beer for our fundraisers, hosting fundraisers at the Brewery, donating auction items and raising money for us several times a year.

If you're looking for tasty beer and food in a great location with a fun atmosphere, head up to the Six Rivers Brewery in McKinleyville. And remember - when it rains, they pour! Don't forget to try the Chili Beer, either.

We LOVE Pierson's! Every spring and summer the great people at Pierson's allow Friends for Life to have our adoption events in their courtyard. These events have resulted in the adoptions of hundreds of cats and kittens, dogs and puppies in the last four years. We cannot thank Pierson's and their terrific employees enough for their generosity, kindness and support. Above is our friend Greg Bateman with foster dog Lily giving him a big hug at our last event of 2007 at Pierson's. Board members Kathie Lotz, Linn Tyhurst and Linda Hall-Martin presented a plaque to Pierson's honoring them for their incredible support in hosting our adoption events. We really do love all the wonderful people at Pierson's!

Thanks to Fin-N-Feather for all their support! They allow us to place foster cats in their store to give them more exposure to potential adopters. They host community events like the one pictured above and allow us to bring our adoptable animals out to meet the public. We are very grateful for all of Fin-N-Feather's support!

Gourmet Dog Biscuit Company. Denise not only makes wonderful, natural biscuits and treats for dogs, she is also a steadfast supporter of FFL and goes the extra mile to help animals in need in our community. Buy a bag or two of these hand made treats for your doggie and help support this great local business! Call Denise at 840-WOOF for these wonderful treats for your best friend.

The Farm Store has been a big supporter of Friends for Life since the very beginning. Currently, they are allowing us to place our adoptable cats in the store where they are treated like kings and queens and loved by all the staff. Several cats and kittens have found forever homes thanks to The Farm Store! You can see Manager Tim Shreeve below with Sam, a FFL Foster Cat who met his forever person there recently. Please visit The Farm Store for all your pet supplies and farm animal needs.

Mary and Beal Willcutt volunteer with several of the local rescue groups and are always there for the animals. In addition to their own five lucky dogs and cats, they work with BONES and handle dogs at adoption events, like their pal in this picture.

Mary and Beal also volunteer with FFL and we are very grateful to them for running our cartridge and cell phone recycling program. Thanks to Mary and Beal, and the donations of so many individuals and business in our community, these cartridges and old cell phones are generating income for our programs to help animals in need.

We want to thank and acknowledge Mary and Beal for all they do for all the animals. They really are two very special people!

Thank you to Signature Coffee for supporting us by donating $.25 cents per pound of their KSLUG Brand coffee that is sold! Also, thank you to KSLUG for getting the word out and promoting the coffee sales!

Redwood Acres is our indoor adoption event home during the fall and winter. We are extremely grateful to the Board of Directors of Redwood Acres for their generosity and kindnesses. We love these events which we host and invite all the other local rescue groups to attend and bring their adoptable animals to meet potential adopters. These Mega Adoption Events are a great opportunity for people seeking to adopt a cat or kitten, dog or puppy, to meet many adoptable animals all in one warm, indoor location. Hundreds of homeless animals have found homes through these events.

Happy Dog gets two paws up and a big thank you from Friends for Life for providing day care for so many of our foster dogs! The wonderful ladies at Happy Dog have been supporters of FFL from the beginning and adopted one of our most beloved foster dogs, Lady, who is often on the premises in her cart having fun with all the other dogs. Kathy and Diane have been there for FFL on so many occasions it's impossible to count them all but we do not know how we would have done it without them! Take this link to their website for information on the services offered by Happy Dog.

ServerKing has generously hosted this site free of charge since Friends for Life's inception and provide all our email services as well. Thanks especially to Justin for taking care of all our internet needs and always being ready to help us with questions and providing instant solutions.
