Chandni Patel

Executive Director/President

I have loved animals for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a household where we rescued and adopted animals, no matter the circumstances. I have always dreamed of being a part of a rescue organization for many years. After receiving calls from friends, family, and strangers about abandoned animals, I decided to create a non-profit organization dedicated to giving these animals a fighting chance to live a prosperous life. Furry Friends Animal Aid was founded on my love for all animals. Having the opportunity to protect them and give them a place to call home is the reason why I do what I do. My six cats (Bagheera, Mowgli, Imma, Loki, Smooshy, & Arlo) and two dogs (Baloo & Meeko) bring me so much happiness, and they are an essential part of my family. Knowing that I can bring unconditional love into someone’s home and give these animals a healthy, happy life is the most fulfilling feeling in the world.

I would like everyone to experience the sense of fulfillment and love that I have felt from rescuing animals in need. Words cannot truly describe the pleasure of saving helpless animals. If you want to join us, now is the time. Every contribution, no matter how big or small, powers our mission and sustains our future. You can support Furry Friends Animal Aid with as little as $1, and it only takes a minute. Thank you for being a part of our journey that will change the lives of many animals.

I am thrilled to be a part of an incredible organization that advocates for all animals. Furry Friends Animal Aid resonated with me because of its core values: all animals deserve love and care. Being a part of saving these innocent creatures means the world to me. I have three cats named Ann, Andy, and Thunder, and four dogs named Riley, Sparky, Pebbles, and Bailey. They bring so much happiness into my life, and I am determined to share that happiness with others through the animals rescued by Furry Friends Animal Aid.
