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!

Our Website Has Arrived!

Welcome To The New Website For Advocates For Animal Rights (AFAR)!

We are so very happy that you’ve stopped by! Step by step, our dream is becoming a reality.  It started in 2007 when a group of friends gathered, sharing a vision: To provide a place where animals who were homeless, abandoned, or otherwise unwanted could come and take refuge; a no-kill sanctuary where they would feel safe and secure until they were placed in their new forever home-or live out their lives in safety and comfort. It has taken us several years & a big piece of the dream is realized today-the launching of The AFAR Website! Feel free to take some time and look around, find out a little bit about us. If you would like to leave us some feedback it would be greatly appreciated, there is a form to do so at the bottom of this page.

As time moves on, you’ll notice changes to our website, as we bring you information about what is happening in our world, and in the world of our best friends too!

We are always seeking volunteers in many areas:

  1. Help with feedings, walks, vet appointments, etc.
  2. People to serve on our Board
  3. Volunteers to coordinate and work special events
  4. Outreach into our community
  5. Advocacy for those who have no voice

We’d really like to hear from you, so If you have any questions, please feel free to drop us a note.  Thanks again for stopping by, we look forward to serving you for many years to come!
