The Rescue Our Furry Friends organization was established in 2004 by Diane Adair and Cindy McClellan. ROFF has placed over 450 dogs, over 250 cats and 23 birds thus far.
ROFF does not have a facility and therefore relies on the generosity and kindness of our local families whom are willing to foster dogs and cats until their forever homes are found.
As of June 2008, our organization was granted a non-profit status. All donations to ROFF are now tax deductible.
All dogs are vaccinated for rabies, distemper and kennel cough. They are de-wormed and started on Vectra. If the dogs are over 6 months of age, they are spayed and neutered before they can be adopted. We begin the dogs on housebreaking and crate training as soon as they enter the rescue.
All cats are tested for feline leukemia and feline AIDS. They are also de-wormed and started on Vectra. If the cats are over 6 months of age, they are spayed and neutered before they can be adopted. We begin litter training as soon as they enter the rescue.
Rescue Our Furry Friends requires an application to be completed if anyone is interested in one of our animals. Their is no adoption fee. There is an adoption contract that needs to be signed prior to any adoption. The animals we adopt out must be kept as inside animals.
Reading Partners is a national nonprofit that mobilizes communities to provide students with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by fourth grade.
We know that reading is the foundation for all future learning. The ability to read transforms lives and empowers children and communities to reach their full potential. Research shows that students who read at grade level by fourth grade have a greater opportunity to succeed in school and beyond.
That’s why we partner with under-resourced schools and engage volunteer reading partners to work one-on-one with students who struggle with reading. Our volunteers provide hour-long tutoring sessions to students— following a structured, evidence-based curriculum developed with an expert team of curriculum advisors.

Flatbush Cats exists to solve the cat overpopulation crisis in Brooklyn – and beyond.
We began as a small volunteer-led TNR and rescue group. But after rescuing hundreds of friendly strays and kittens who all needed medical care…and after helping our neighbors TNR hundreds of feral cats on the same blocks…
We noticed that new cats still kept showing up, year after year. There’s a bigger problem here.
The Mental Health Coalition was formed with the understanding that the mental health crisis is fueled by a pervasive and devastating stigma, preventing millions of individuals from being able to seek the critical treatment they need.
We envision a world in which mental health is not associated with stigma, shame or judgement and all people feel empowered to openly discuss and address their individual mental health needs.
We are a coalition of the leading mental health organizations, brands, and individuals who have joined forces to end the stigma surrounding mental health and to change the way people talk about, and care for, mental illness.
