Carson began his journey at the county animal shelter in April. Those familiar with him there knew he would make a terrific companion. With their help FAN featured him and in August he finally went to a county sponsored foster home. He adored it there and they adored him. Unfortunately, through no fault of his own, personal matters in the family resulted in his return to the shelter. He did not understand why and we know Carson is just too proud to be homeless FAN is now sponsoring this fabulous boy. Carson is an emphatic snuggle-bug! He’s that rare sort of pooch who is so thoughtful, and cares so much about how others feel, that he could easily become one of the most important 'people' in your life. He will greet you, jump in your lap, and look in your eyes like he knows exactly what kind of day you’ve had. This dog loves absolutely everyone. You should see him when you turn on the TV! The way he races to ...get to his favorite spot on the couch. But don’t worry — all it takes is the gentlest nudge to scoot him.” Could you or someone you know give this sweet boy his forever home?  Carson is being treated for heartworm. Don't worry, FAN covers the costs. These pictures truly represent who he is….open your hearts for Carson who so much wants to please. He is neutered and updated on all vaccinations. Please   text or call     904-790-3439  or call  904-432-7564
Cowboy's Story

Cowboy was surrendered by his owner to the Nassau County shelter on January 10, 2018. He spent over nine months at the shelter before a foster angel took him home.

Cowboy hates being confined in his kennel, He barks and jumps up and down. His kennel behavior no doubt was the reason why he did not get adopted. Once he is out of his kennel and gets over the initial excitement of being free, he is a different dog.

Cowboy has limited vision in his left eye. One of the dog walkers noted that he tends to get a bit startled if something approaches him from the left. He gets along with other dogs but tends to be protective of his food dish.
Pasa is ready for a furever home!

Please tell your friends about Pasa. He is currently in a foster home, but is looking for a furever home. You won't find a sweeter dog than Pasa. Send us an email or contact us through our Facebook page.
Spots before and Spots after
   Poor little spots. When he came to the shelter as a stray on July 5th. He was fearful, growling and fear snapping. His hair was thin and he was covered in fleas. He had been neglected and perhaps even abused. He was been adopted twice only to return for defensive biting.

Spots is in a foster home and he is progressing. He is still a little temperamental, but overall much less fearful and less defensive. He follows his foster mom everywhere and never wants to leave her side. Spots is learning to trust again and he will be a wonderful pet. He would do best in an adult household that offers him a lot of freedom and companionship.

Spots is approximately six years old and weighs thirteen pounds. He loves to go on walks and roll in the grass, he even likes baths. He is housebroken and he likes other dogs.

If you know someone who can give this little guy a loving home. please share this newsletter with them.

We need more Fosters!

We need caring people to take special needs dogs while they recover from illness or injury until we can place them in a furever home. The foster period could be a few days to a few months. If you love dogs, but you can't make a long term commitment to own one, fostering may be the answer.

We need volunteers to help with event planning, marketing, social media and photography and dog walking. If you love animals, have some skills and can devote a little of your time, contact us.
Friends of Animals Nassau (FAN) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Nassau County Florida. FAN focuses on finding homes for dogs and assists in their medical care, including heartworm treatment. FAN is NOT an animal shelter, instead we keep dogs in loving foster homes with caring people while they undergo treatment until we find them a furever home. We are able to help dogs through the work of our tireless volunteers, our fundraising events, our generous sponsors and your contributions. All donations are tax deductible.
