Friends for Life Humane Society
“Friends for Life” is more than just the name for our organization. It is a slogan that reminds them of the joy and meaning that dogs can bring to us and that we can bring to dogs.
- Treat dogs well, and they will be your Friends for Life.
- Work together to help dogs, and you will form Friends for Life.
- Having a tough time, or feeling down, dogs will be your Friends for Life.
They ask that each of you read a very special passage, which they feel provides a compelling point of view on the needs of our Friends for Life.

Children of the Night
Children of the Night is a private, non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded in 1979. We are dedicated to assisting children between the age of 11 and 17 who are forced to prostitute on the streets for food to eat and a place to sleep. Since 1979 we have rescued girls and boys from prostitution and the domination of vicious pimps. And we provide all programs with the support of private donations.
We are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children each year. Our commitment to rescuing these children from the ravages of prostitution is shared with a small but committed group of detectives, FBI agents, and prosecutors in Los Angeles, Hollywood, Santa Ana, Anaheim, San Diego, other areas of California, Las Vegas, Portland, Billings, Montana; Seattle, Washington; Miami, New York, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Phoenix, Hawaii and Washington D.C. — all stops on the child prostitution circuit. And our numbers keep growing as more and more dedicated individuals become concerned about the welfare of these desperate children.
Children of the Night is in demand to assist other agencies across the country and around the world to develop similar programs.
Snowball Express started in early 2006 with a simple idea: Provide hope and new memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11.
America should honor and pay tribute to the children of those military fallen heroes who have died while honorably serving since 9/11. In December of 2006, nearly 900 family members from all across America and the world gathered in Southern California for an unforgettable holiday gathering. Kids and widows discovered they weren’t alone. And they found they weren’t forgotten.
ThanksUSA is a non-partisan, charitable effort to mobilize Americans of all ages to “thank” the men and women of the United States armed forces. We’re doing that by providing college, technical and vocational school scholarships for their children and spouses.
