About Our Shelter:

Stand Up for Animals is a 501 ( c ) 3 organization based in the Florida Keys dedicated to the welfare of all animals. Incorporated in May of 2001, the organization operates two animal shelters, one in Marathon and one in Big Pine Key and covers the Florida Keys from Mile Marker 16.5 through Mile Marker 70. In addition, Stand Up for Animals operates a state-licensed veterinary clinic dedicated to spaying and neutering cats and dogs.

Stand Up For Animals does not euthanize any animal unless it is extremely ill, badly injured, or a danger to people or other animals. Stand Up for Animals is a 501 ( c ) 3 organization based in the Florida Keys dedicated to the welfare of all animals.

All cats are tested for feline leukemia and all dogs are tested for heartworm before being released from the shelter. There are no refunds for healthy animals. If, however, an animal becomes ill within three days of adoption, it may be returned to the shelter for a full refund. Stand Up for Animals requires that, if for any reason the adoption does not work out, the animal is to be returned to our organization only

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.
