Message from our President

I am honored to be the President of an organization that touches the lives of people and animals every single day.  We continually celebrate the great work Furry Friends is doing for cats, dogs and people in our community.  We could not do this without you and our numerous partnerships.

We are very excited about the growth we have seen in our organization and the strides we have made.  In 2018, our clinic saw more than 24,000 animals!  And our adoptions have increased more than 300% over the past few years.  From Senior to Senior to Shelter to Service Dog™ and from training to fostering and volunteering, our programs are designed to increase the opportunities for our animals while lending credibility to our organization. 

We are steadfast in our mission as a no kill shelter to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abused and abandoned dogs and cats.  As the Humane Society of Greater Jupiter/Tequesta*, we have been rescuing animals and providing a safe harbor for those in need since 1985.  Our work is far from over!  

Thank you for your ongoing support of our organization.  I am eager for all that we will continue to accomplish together.


For the Love of Animals

Pat Deshong, President
