Helping the Community Our Mission

Fast Friends is a great place for young adults to fulfill community service hour requirements for school and other special programs. While volunteering, students learn new life skills and experience firsthand how caring for animals can enrich their lives forever.

We also work with individuals or groups on special projects that would be eligible for scouting or other awards. Please contact Amy at or 603-355-1556 with your idea.

Regular volunteer activities include walking the greyhounds, washing dishes, doing laundry, gardening, general cleaning, and helping with special events.
