Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Lost Angels is based in Tampa, Florida with our foster homes spanning several of the surrounding counties. We are not a brick and mortar shelter, so we meet at the Petco in Carrollwood, as well as other venues to showcase our fabulous, foster dogs. (contact dog's foster parent for details of where to meet on a particular weekend)

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a non profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted dogs. We take our pets from kill shelters, owners who can longer care for them, and strays. They are completed vetted and then fostered in our homes until the perfect family can be found for them.

Come Meet our Pets:

We show our adoptable dogs on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at:

Petco
13127 North Dale Mabry Highway
Tampa, FL 33618
(located at the corner of N. Dale Mabry Hwy and Fletcher Ave.)

Not every foster family has the ability to show their dogs every weekend. Please contact the foster family at the email or phone number listed in the dog's biography to find out if they will be participating at the Petco on Saturday.

Our Adoption Process:

Filling out an application is an important first step in our adoption process. These can be downloaded from our website: www.lostangelsanimalrescue.org.

Meeting the dog you are interested in, asking questions and talking with the foster parent(s) about their foster pup is the next step. (can be combined with step 1 if you meet the dog at one of our many adoption events)

The foster parent will do a thorough check of your completed application (especially vet references) and possibly do a home visit with their foster dog before making a decision on their placement. (This is not 'first come, first served'. We only complete adoptions to homes that offer what is best & needed for our foster dogs; ie. a fenced yard, someone home longer hours with the dog, etc )

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
