Saving Animals & Finding Homes
Rescue Friends Animal Foundation is a Calgary and surrounding area animal aid team formed by a group of experienced non-profit volunteers, directors, foster homes, adopters, and animal rescuers. Our board of directors has over 45 years of combined knowledge working in animal welfare including extensive experience of non-profit board of directors, local and international spay and neuter initiatives, disaster relief, rescue, humane education, vaccination, and other welfare programs.
Our vision is to create a world where animals can live the best life possible. To accomplish our vision, our team has assembled to connect animals and people through rescue, education, and support initiatives. Our team will assess situations requiring animal aid and determine the best course of action on an individual basis. We are also dedicated to providing valuable outreach and educational services to the community through trained professional educators. We strive to work collaboratively with other organizations in order to achieve the best possible outcome for the animals in need.
We look forward to serving our community and connecting with the animals and their people needing assistance.

Save a Life
Adopting a homeless animal is compassionately choosing to provide a safe and loving forever home for an animal in need. When you adopt, you save the life of that animal and make room for another that can be rescued. Adoption fees cover the expenses of the spay/neuter, deworming and vaccinations. You support a non profit organization which puts the welfare of animals first. Adopting is rewarding and enriches our lives mentally, emotionally and physically.
Fostering provides a loving home for an animal in need. When you foster, you provide a temporary safe haven for a homeless pet until we are able find a forever home. To an animal in need, a foster home is a bridge to a better life. It is the foundation that allows us to save as many lives as possible.
What Is the Difference Between Adopting and Fostering?
Fostering is short term and provides a temporary safe and loving home for a rescued animal until it is adopted. Food, bedding and supplies needed to care for the animal while in a foster home will be provided by the organization. Adopting is long term and provides a permanent safe and loving home for a rescued animal. The adoptive family is responsible for continuing care of their new pet.
