ABOUT US

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.

Virtual Adoption At AFAR

.

As in any Rescue or Sanctuary, some animals who come to us so badly traumatized that they will never be able to be adopted. These animals are nicknamed Lifers, and we have several Lifers permanently with us here at AFAR. Rather than taking the chance of re-traumatizing them by placing them into a home, only to have them brought back to us, or worse to be dropped off at another shelter or rescue, it’s more humane to keep them  safe and warm at AFAR.

Once an animal is brought to us, they go through an extensive screening process. Some are classified as immediately adoptable and some, through no fault of their own, are not. Some potentially adoptable animals may need to recover from surgery, or go through some form of physical or psychological rehabilitation or training. But with the proper rehabilitation & training, many become adoptable and eventually are placed in their new forever homes. 

Sadly, some are not able to be properly rehabilitated because of permanent physical and/or psychological injuries. They may experience hearing or sight loss, personality challenges, or they may be too old or just be the wrong color (black animals are 10 times more likely to remain unadopted). For those left behind, those who will have no loving family, life can be pretty lonely.

Thus, have created a unique opportunity our beautiful Lifers to remain here safe from harm, but to still feel the love and support of a family. Welcome to our Virtual Adoption Program! With this awesome program, you’ll be able to virtually adopt the lifer of your choice.

After you’ve chosen the Virtual Adoptee that speaks to you from the list of our lifer candidates, you’ll read about their story and learn about their trials and tribulations.As your journey of intervention continues, you’ll fill out our Printable Virtual Adoption Application or our Online Virtual Adoption Application. After you’ve filled out your paperwork and pledged a monthly financial commitment, (used to help maintain your new adoptee) the hard part will be finished. And with our Awesome Monthly Donation Tiers, there’s a virtual adoptable animal for EVERYBODY’S budget. The bond you’ll begin to form with your animal will be truly incredible.
