Who is Mr.Frisky?

Mr.Frisky was our first rescue. He was a homeless cat living on the streets. This organization and it's mission are in his honor. He lived to be almost 20 years old.

Our Mission

Uniting the World to Adopt Love Give at their local animal shelter, rescue or sanctuary. We’re on a Mission to find and list every animal shelter, rescue and sanctuary in the world and help them find more adopters, fosters, volunteers, donors! We also provide pet care and training information and advice for new pet parents who've adopted or who are fostering. Our worldwide directory of shelters, rescues and sanctuaries is now over 500 listings in 55 countries - and still growing! We are the only Organization listing on a global level, and the only one not charging to do it. We feel the funds shelters, rescues and sanctuaries have should go to the care of the animals, not to paying for a listing.


We also share their needs for free on our social media pages to help them find more adopters, fosters, volunteers, and donors. Please Follow Us to help us help more animal organizations around the world:



Who am I?

I'm Lauren Greenwood, the Fabulous Pet Lady and Founder of AskMrFrisky.org.  I have volunteered for and supported animal shelters, rescues and sanctuaries for over 15 years cleaning kennels, performing Vet Tech assistance, creating and leading Volunteer and Foster programs, speaking on local radio, TV, and at schools and civic events.

I work full time, rescue, care for ferals, strays and wildlife, give pet care advice, and do this website, social media, YouTube videos, blog, and pet care articles in my 'spare time'.

I have an assortment of animals, most with special needs. Thankfully I have very supportive Veterinarians!​​​​​
