Fetch A Friend Rescue was started April 2015. Owner Jamie Hughes has been in love with dogs since she received her first one 25 years ago at age 6. In 2005 Jamie started volunteering at the local animal shelter and began to spend every day of the week there working with the dogs and running their website.
In 2011, she and a friend saw the need for more facilities for dogs in need of homes and they began 2nd Chance Dog Rescue. From March 2011-December 2014 they rescued and placed over 750 dogs in their forever homes. Rescue and caring for dogs are Jamie’s passion and she couldn’t imagine not being able to work with them on a daily basis. With the support of her family and friends Jamie chose to pursue her dream on her own and opened a new boarding facility and rescue in Seneca Falls, NY.
Opened in February 2016, Phoebe's K9 Resort offers dog and cat boarding, doggy daycare, and grooming. It is also home to Fetch A Friend Rescue.
Jamie lives in Seneca Falls with her 6 dogs, Abby, Tucker, Phoebe, Lily, Fritz & Rocky.
Volunteer and Adoption Coordinator Kate Larham has been with us since day one caring for the dogs every day of the week, all while maintaining a full time job. Kate is our prime caregiver, transporter, enrichment leader, adoption facilitator and an advocate for the voiceless. Kate is instrumental to the rescue and loves every dog as though they were her own. She ensures each dog is spoiled beyond measure and shown love every day they are with us. Kate lives in Geneva with her husband and 3 dogs, Sheldon, Leena & Max.
