Welcome to Treasured Friends Rescue!

Treasured Friends is a no-kill, non-profit animal rescue group dedicated to care and placement of abandoned/unwanted pets. Strictly foster based, our volunteers provide food, shelter, care, and compassion to our furry friends until they find a loving home.

Treasured Friends is in Need of New Cages

This request is on behalf of thousands of animals in shelters in Northwest Indiana. Treasured Friends is trying to ease the burden on shelters by providing adoptions at the Schererville Petsmart on weekends by showcasing animals that are in local shelters.

Every weekend, excluding holidays, we have volunteers encouraging shelter adoptions and spay and neuter programs at Petsmart. In order for us to promote the advantage of shelter animals and the love that these animals can provide in a forever home, we set up cages to house the animals for view of interested parties. The cages are set up and taken down every weekend, which causes extreme wear and tear on the cages. The cages then become unsafe to use and less animals are able to be transported for adoption.

At this time, we are asking local businesses or any other donors to help out these shelter animals. Treasured Friends is looking to purchase new collapsible cages and condos. These cages run approximately $100 apiece and are going to be purchased at chewy.com. If your business is interested in saving the life of a shelter animal, donations can be made to Treasured Friends Animal Rescue at PO Box 9234, Highland, IN 46322, or you may donate via our Paypal option at left. With your generous donation, we will advertise your business on the cage for everyone to view how your local business supports rescuing animals from shelters and possible euthanasia. Please indicate on the memo of your check, or in the Paypal option that it is for the purchase of cages. Please note that our organization is a 501(c)3 and your donation is tax deductible. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

Please Help Todd!!

Todd is a sweet pup, around 6 - 8 months old. He has been diagnosed with Parvo virus because he didn't get his shots as a puppy. He is at Animal Medical Center where Dr. Kim will do her best to save him.

Please consider helping Todd along in his fight for life. Please click the Donate button above to give via PayPal or send donations to:

Oliver Needs Your Help

Oliver is a friendly and non confrontational cat. He does not fight with other cats, and does not like dogs at all. Unfortunately, the people that were going to adopt him were put off because he is FIV positive.

Please check out this website - http://cats.about.com/cs/healthissues/a/fiv_in_cats.htm It is important to realize that a positive test for FIV is not a mandatory death sentence. With a high protein diet and aggressive treatment of secondary infections, an FIV -positive cat can lead a reasonably normal life span. Dr. Mike Richards says, "Feline immunodeficiency virus infection does not lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in cats as often as human immunodeficiency virus leads to AIDS in people." The largest threat to FIV-positive cats is secondary infections, such as bladder, skin, and upper respiratory infections. Kidney failure is also frequently seen in cats with FIV. These secondary infections should be treated promptly and aggressively in any cat, but especially with an FIV cat.

Please consider giving Oliver the love that he deserves! If you are interested in adopting Oliver, please contact us.
