Welcome to the Adopt a Friend for Life Home Page
 Enjoy your visit here!

Adopt a Friend for Life is dedicated to rescuing adoptable stray, abandoned and homeless cats and dogs. AFL offers an alternative to animal control shelters by housing the animals in foster homes until they can be placed for adoption into loving, permanent homes. We are committed to reducing pet overpopulation by providing 100% spay/neuter for animals in our care and strive to build lifelong friendships that will enrich the human-animal bond.

My name is Bogie, and I am about 8 months old.  I love the fact that I am safe now, and cared for the way any kitty would want to be!

AFL meets monthly, every fourth Wednesday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.  We meet at St. Martin of Tours Church in Kalamazoo.  Our meeting dates for 2016 are as follows:
June 22, August 24, September 28, October 26, and November 16.  There are no meetings in July or December.  Our meetings are casual and everyone is invited. Bring your dinner with you, that's okay! This is a great way to keep in touch with fellow volunteers and happenings in AFL. Your input and ideas are always welcome!

A portion of each sale is then sent to the rescue organization you have chosen, in your name.
