The Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue (FMAR) is a non-profit 501(c) (3) rescue for dogs and cats that started in April 2003 with the help of great volunteers and supporters. We grew faster than anyone anticipated, creating a necessity to find more space. Pete and Marcy LaFramboise, founders of FMAR, moved from their dream home and bought a 6-1/2 acre farm with a run-down house and two great barns.
FMAR is the reality of a vision created by Pete and Marcy that continues to grow and thrive with the help and determination of our dedicated board members and volunteers. Since 2003, the shelter has added a new dog kennel with a capacity of 22, a Cat Haven where cats are able to roam free, a meet-and-greet room, food storage, bathroom, and laundry room. Needless to say, it has been pretty busy over here. However, renovations never cease, and the next goal is to create our very own veterinary clinic. This is where you come in; FMAR relies on donations, fundraising events, and grants to pay the immense costs accumulated from running a shelter. A veterinary clinic will only be made possible by the generosity of donors like you. Any amount will help, but if you donate $250+, you will receive a personalized thank you note from one of our adoptable animals! Thank you for your time and consideration.
