The absolute core priority of Furry Menagerie is to provide a real, loving, long-term home and family for furries and fur-friends. There are some wonderful people in the fandom who have no one who truly cares about them in the 'real world'. This kind of isolation is tragic, and we're putting a stop to it. Loneliness and depression kill. We are a lifeline to many, as shown by the fact several of our members have spent half their lives with us.
