Welcome to the Furry Farm Rescue!

Rescue is a balance of very difficult and emotional trials countered with transformations and incredible humans matched with precious sentients. Percy’s story started with abuse and abandonment. He was found in a Christmas tote, dumped on the side of a county road, covered in feces and in severe malnutrition. His hocks had collapsed, and he weighed 28 pounds when he arrived in our care on October 24. Huge thanks to the human who found Percy and whisked him into Pet Emergency. When the shelter reached out for help, it was an instant yes.

Upon intake, we checked from blood to bowels and researched the best methods of reintroducing nutrition to a starvation patient. Percy was nursed back to health with our trusted vet partners, Dr Ruth at North Spokane Veterinary Clinic, Dr Laura with North East Washington Spay Neuter Alliance, and Dr Krista at Springwater.

With Percy eating 8 small meals a day, he went to work with me. His natural kind heart and sweet disposition swooned everyone. For the first few months, he ate and slept. Recovery and growing zapped him. Slowly he grew stronger, and around the New Year he started really playing with other dogs. From frail to rambunctious, we were on a good path.

Percy’s story grabbed Michelle and when he was ready, we transferred care to Michelle under our Foster to Adopt program, as we finished out his medical. Enrolled in Basic Obedience together, Percy and Michelle are learning together. It’s no easy task to be a dog owner, let alone 130# dog owner. Having good manners is a requirement, not optional. Placement into Michelle’s loving home really completed his story.

Rehabilitation and medical treatment continues to be our focus in 2024, as we support our local shelters. Foster families are needed more than ever, while we help educate the community on spay and neuter. Not every foster needs as much effort as Percy, but every dog feels that love and second chance.

A little more about FFR

Our promise to our animals: We will love and protect you, provide an enriching and nurturing foster home, care for all your medical needs, give you the structure and training needed for success, and above all; treat you as our own while you are with us.


Our promise to our community: We will work together, we will be kind and considerate, we will educate, we will advocate, we will serve.


We are a small rescue established in 2017 to serve North Idaho and surrounding vicinity.  The farm hands bring rescue and animal welfare together with a focus on our local community needs.  Furry Farm concentrates on those most at risk, be it their medical needs, background, or baggage. We are not a high volume rescue, instead specializing in doing acute care, long term recovery and rehabilitation.  We operate as volunteer only, with all of our animals in the care of foster volunteers at their residence.  There is no "farm" or building to come visit animals at this time and all of our services start with the application process found on this website.  


The Furry Farm Rescue's Mission is to reduce abandonment and euthanasia by providing a safe, structured, loving transition to a forever home.
