About Us

Our mission

Furry Friends is working every day to support the human-animal bond by addressing needs at both ends of the leash. As the needs of our community and region evolve, we are refocusing to improve our care for pets while also addressing the root causes of pet overpopulation. Our vision is to transform our facilities into nation-leading campuses for lifesaving programs, address disparities in the supply of and access to adoptable pets, provide access to Veterinary Services to all, and build a culture of care and achievement.



Furry Friends Adoption, Clinic & Ranch (The Humane Society of Greater Jupiter/Tequesta*) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, no-kill rescue organization headquartered in Jupiter, Florida. We are the only shelter open to the public in Northern Palm Beach County. We have been rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing homeless animals in our community since 1981.



We are thrilled to share with you our goals the future of Furry Friends. It is a time of change and incredible opportunities that we can’t wait to embark on.
