Friends of Animals of the Coastal Empire, Inc. is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that distributes funds from its annual auctions to existing non-profit animal rescue and welfare groups in our area.

We are not a rescue group and do not have animals available for adoption.  If interested in adopting an animal, please visit one of the local rescue group/shelter websites listed in the footer.

Mission Statement

We strive to promote the health and well-being of animals,  prevent cruelty to animals, and prevent overpopulation and homelessness of animals.  We raise money for distribution to other non-profit groups serving animals in our area.
