Philosophy/Mission: Family Dogs New Life Shelter (FDNLS) is a nonprofit no-kill dog shelter dedicated to rescuing and rehoming needy dogs of all ages, breeds and backgrounds. FDNLS was built on the belief that all dogs deserve a second chance at a new life. Their philosophy is that it’s not about being the perfect dog — it’s about dog and adopter being perfect for one another.
