Our Story

Flori’s Friends Rescue is a UK registered charity (117365) born in 2015 from Natalia George’s kitchen table. After having rescued and rehabilitated two abused street dogs herself she decided to make it her mission to bring hope to those that have lost everything they know. Natalia has extensive experience in animal nursing, husbandry and a 1st class honours degree in animal biology. After coupling her educational background with her knowledge on dog behaviour and training, Natalia continues to grow the charity alongside a dedicated core team of trustees and managers.

What We Do

We are a 100% non-profit charity, dedicated to helping and rehoming abused and unwanted animals in Britain and across Europe.

We have a strict no-kill policy and every life matters to us, however big or small. Many of our animals come in with no hope left in their eyes and it is our job to bring back their sparkle.

At Flori’s Friends Rescue, we provide much needed veterinary care and rehabilitation to those many have turned their backs on. Each soul is cared for by a skilled member of our team with compassion, respect and dedication. We specialise in sick and injured animals and truly believe every single soul deserves 100% effort and compassion to get them back on their feet.

All animals are matched as closely as possible to adopters and full aftercare support is provided by our qualified and devoted team throughout each animal’s life. It is not just the animal that needs support, we truly believe supporting adopters throughout their journey is just as important. To enable us to provide great aftercare, adopters are provided with a 1-2-1 follow-up support member and our team of behaviourists. Adopters are also invited to join our online support group; our family of adopters that share stories, give support and provide plenty of laughter!

So, don’t be scared to adopt, join the Flori family!
