Our Founder

Anne Ingram, revered founder of Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary, passed away Sunday, May 28th. She leaves a legacy of love and care for animals. Her passion and energy were a driving force in establishing the Sanctuary and countless animals have benefitted from her work. The building, grounds and traditions are a tribute to her desire “…to lead a life of service” both to people and to animals. She rescued hundreds of homeless cats and dogs during her life. She thought dogs were “God’s ambassadors here on earth, and cats were sent to keep us humble.”

With heavy hearts, the Board, Director, and Volunteers of FFAS say goodbye to Anne and vow to continue her goal of caring for and finding homes for cats and dogs. We extend our sincere condolences to her family and extensive network of friends. We find comfort in picturing a happy welcome from the many creatures she has known and helped who have waited at the Rainbow Bridge.
