Hear straight from our 3 legged, 1 1/2 eyed, partially blind wunder kid, Chibi, himself. He has a lot to say!

* Spotlight Furiends
* His Fed With Faith Friends
* His Community Service
*His Thoughts on Spay/Neuter - why it's so important to our rescue efforts
*His obsession with his tennis ball
Chibi's Friends is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
We are a fully foster-based animal rescue. Our adoptables stay in foster homes across the Louisville Metro area.
We incorporated in March 2018 with the goal to pull animals at risk for euthanasia across Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
We fully vaccinate them, get them spayed/neutered, and find homes either locally, or in northern/eastern states (where laws for animal cruelty are much stricter).

"I was a military police officer with the Kentucky Army National Guard from 2000 to 2012. During that time, I went on three deployments to Cuba, Afghanistan, and Iraq. I learned, quite well, what good leadership can do for people and it is no different for dogs.
I was like most dog lovers, always had dogs in my life and often used "old school' methods for "training" them, like swatting them or rubbing their nose in a potty accident. I even trained my deaf Boxer with hand signals.
Then, a few years ago, I got an unusually anxious Boxer who did not respond well to any of those aggressive methods."... (CONT.)
