About Our Rescue Group:

We are a no-kill - not for profit dog & cat rescue group that rescues injured, abandoned and/or abused animals (that most rescue groups would not take), and do "whatever it takes" to make them better. Once healed, we rely entirely on foster homes to nurture the animals until we find their permanent "forever" home.
We DO NOT euthanize because they are injured and their care will be costly - nor do we euthanize because the animal is too old to be adopted. We take animals that most other no-kill organizations will not take --- which makes us a TRUE no-kill organization.
We are comprised ENTIRELY of volunteers and no-one receives compensation for their time. We have no funding available to us other than donations and grants we apply for and, contrary to what many people believe -


WE DO NOT GET OUR VET SERVICES FOR FREE!


We pay - just like you do!

We are forever holding fundraising events to raise money to cover our vet bills and keep our fingers crossed with the rest!
And no matter what the vet bill was or the pedigree of the dog or cat, our adoption fees range from $135 - $200 and that includes a microchip! Cats/kittens are $75.00. Your pet donation is a tax deductible donation to you and will be applied toward the vet bill.


We CANNOT accept surrendered pets because we do not have a shelter to house them and cannot afford to pay to board them somewhere. We rely "entirely" on foster homes and have animals in foster care in Fort Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines, Pompano Beach and North Ft. Lauderdale.


HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We are always in need of temporary or long term "animal loving" homes, and donations of dog & cat food, kitty litter, leashes, harnesses of all sizes, litter pans and carpet covered kitty condos. Please give us a call if you are interested in helping our group save lives.


Remember -- We are comprised entirely of volunteers and NO-ONE receives a salary or monetary compensation for services or time. All donations are applied to the care and well being of our animals.


Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Checks should be made payable to:

Our Adoption Process:

ADOPTING A FRIEND
Most of the animals in our care have been rescued, so we ensure their new home will be better than the last. We ask every potential adoptee to complete an adoption application. We use a legal and binding adoption contract and charge an adoption fee Ė and we always perform a home inspection.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
