About Us

Famous Fido Rescue and Adoption Alliance is guided by a simple quote by Gandhi: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."


In the late 1970's our founder – Gloria Lissner – saw that there was a problem with millions of animals being euthanized every year. While many believed that this problem could not be remedied, Gloria began to rescue dogs and cats as an alternative to the violence they would suffer at a kill-shelter.


It is for this reason that our mission is a powerful one: Famous Fido Rescue & Adoption Alliance is a grassroots effort to end kill shelters and to promote animal rescue and adoption. We work to rescue animals who aren't considered "adoptable," and we work to connect these animals with safe, loving homes. We also strive to educate the community about animal rescue and protection.


Gloria has been dedicated to animal protection and advocacy and has saved thousands of animals in the last 30 years. The establishment of FFRAA is the combined effort of many individuals who are driven and dedicated to finding answers to the many problems that afflict abused dog and cats. We have made a lot of progress; however, there is still a very long way to go. Because of the many like-minded people we work with we provide food, shelter, veterinary care, adoption, spaying, neutering, training, and information – we also offer lots of love, an active support system, and many other resources!


We want to change the way people view animals and the way that many laws do not work to protect animals. We care about our furry friends and with your help we can change their lives for the better and find solutions.
