Meet Fiona

Fiona Dog for adoption

Fiona joined the FOWA Rescue foster program in July of 2017. Her foster family spotted her adorable photo on Facebook and were immediately touched with her story. Fiona was living at the Newark shelter. She was a young and energetic pup struggling to survive in a shelter setting. Fiona sat for months with no interest and was nearing the point of being “at risk” due to the shelter’s overwhelming intake of dogs. That is when Lisa reached out to FOWA Rescue and said her family would be happy to take Fiona in as a foster and help give her the chance at a brighter future.

FOWA Rescue relies entirely on the generosity of volunteers and local supporters to provide a temporary home for dogs and cats pulled from shelters, abandoned or those surrendered by their owners to simply fend for themselves.  We encourage you to explore our heartfelt website and offer you the chance to let one of our exceptional animals touch your heart in the same way they’ve touched ours.   

Without your help & support … these loving animals don’t stand a chance of surviving.
