Advocates For Animal Rights (AFAR) is a 501c3 Companion Animal Rescue. AFAR has two locations: our first location is In the Beautiful State of Michigan, and our second location is in the Impressive State of Tennessee!

Our primary goal is to raise NO-KILL Companion Animal Sanctuary's at both sites, offering a safe haven to all homeless animals. They will have permanent, safe and loving place to live until a forever home for them is found. However, if a forever home is not readily available, the sanctuary will remain their home away from home until a forever home is found.



WE ADVOCATE- For Animals & Their Caregivers,

WE EDUCATE- On the Importance of Spaying or Neutering Your Animals,

WE CELEBRATE- The Lives of our Companion Animals and the Extraordinary Bond That We Share With Them!

    To My Dear Friend Gordon,

    You did it dude- you achieved your goal of becoming clean, sober and in recovery! I am so very proud of you, and always knew you could do it.

    Gordon, I miss you so very much and I’ll always treasure our friendship. Your companionship, support, and wisdom were truly a gift. We’ve sure been through a lot together and you were there when I needed you. Our life skills and abilities complimented each other. It worked well, and so did we.

    All the lifer dogs love you and miss you as well, and you were so great with them. Your kindness, love, and gentle nature is just what they needed. All the dogs flourished under your care. You were a natural at animal rehabilitation.

    Please know my dear friend that you are and always will be truly loved and missed, and you’ll be in our hearts, prayers, and memories always.



    Jack, Annie, Patches, Baby, Dougie, Maverick, Carmen, Joey, Charlie, Buddy, & Allie
