Who We Are

Schnauzer Friends for Rescue and Adoption is an all-volunteer, non-profit  
501(c)(3) organization of Miniature Schnauzer lovers that began saving lives by  
working with shelters and stray animal population reduction through spay/neuter  
programs in 1996.  Beginning with only a few admirers of the breed and taking in  
a few rescues at a time, SFRA has remained steadfast in its commitment over  
the years to save as many lives as possible and to spread the word of the  
emotional fulfillment in adoption and the joys of the Miniature Schnauzer breed.

Foster Homes Needed:
SFRA is made up completely of volunteers and remains in continual need of committed foster homes.  If you can give a little of yourself to help house and care for a rescued Miniature Schnauzer for a short time until a permanent, loving adoptive home can be found, click here to learn more and to apply.  We would love to talk with you about SFRA and our commitment to our furry buddies.

The Rescued
By Lisa Gray in Memory of Tony

I invited you into my home without hesitation
I don't where you came from, or really who you are
You looked at me with big brown eyes
wondering who I was
or if I would cause you any harm.
As you crawled upon my lap
and laid your head onto my heart
I knew you had found your forever home
cause I loved you from the start.
As the days, months, and years went by
My love for you grew stronger
until the day you let me know
you could stay with me no longer
As I looked into those big brown eyes
I sadly let you go.
Even though I miss you
and think of you each night
you taught me that another
would never take your place
but they would always be
love at first sight.
