Welcome to Friends of Toby

No animal is perfect, but every animal deserves a perfect furrever home!

Welcome to Friends of Toby!

We are an animal advocacy group focusing on "harder-to-adopt" and "long-stay" rescue animals in the DFW area. These animals have been at a shelter, rescue or in foster care longer than the average animal and are often overlooked.

Our goal is to partner with local rescues and shelters to bring more attention to their animals who have not been adopted yet and therefore have been housed at their facility longer than others. Oftentimes these “harder to home” animals are considered a bully-breed, are seniors, have social or anxiety issues, have missing limbs, along with other quirks. Here at Friends of Toby, it is our mission to find the right family who doesn't see them as different, but rather sees them as the special animal they are!

We partner with rescues and shelters all across Dallas and Fort Worth, but that doesn’t mean the adopter has to be local! We are hoping that through your support and sharing of these animals' triumphant stories, they will have the opportunity at a wonderful life anywhere that may be!

Please take a look at some of our recent Featured Animals. All the animals below are still in need of that furrever home!

Kali watched all 6 of her kittens get adopted, but due to her timidness, she's been in foster care for over a year now. She does love hanging out and snuggling with her furry foster siblings so a home with other cats would be necessary to help Kali feel comfortable.
