Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Panama City and all of Bay County
About Our Rescue Group:We are a 501c3 all volunteer no kill rescue organization in Bay County Florida. We do more than pull animals from local animal control facilities, our volunteers are out in the field, on the streets, assisting people who have fallen on hard times by delivering dog houses, feed and other supplies. We now have a pet food bank. You may pick up one bag of feed per month. We take in strays if we have room, we transport if gas can be provided, we network with independent rescuers and groups all over the country. Several of our volunteers have disaster training and are on call with national organizations for disaster response. We hope to be able to open a thrift shop in the future, but for now we raise money by having yard sales. Any clothes that do not sell after 3 yard sales we donate to local organizations that give them to the needy and homeless humans in our community. Please "like" our page on Facebook, the one with our logo not the suitcase.

Our Adoption Process:Requirements-Completed application/home check
Fees- Animals already spayed or neutered
Fees-Animals we had to spay/neuter
Dogs- $85.00 May be an additional charge for large dogs. If a female dog is determined to already have been spayed by our vet, the fee will be $50.00.
Animals that are too young to be spayed or neutered will require a $75.00 deposit for a total of $100.00. The deposit will be refunded or used to pay the bill for the surgery.
We must see where the pet will live.
Adoption Application and Contract are required. The adopter must provide a vet reference and a home check must be done.
A background check will be run in order to adopt an animal. If you have a military, school or other government ID that would indicate a no felony or security clearance job your application may be expedited.
The adoption fee may be waived if the pet is sponsored, otherwise the fee will vary depending on the type of pet that is being adopted, up to the amount of $150.00. This will include vaccinations, spay/neuter, deworming.
We do offer reduced fees to Senior Citizens (60 and older) along with other benefits for them as adopters. Please note that this is an all volunteer organization, most of us have other jobs and we may not be able to call you back immediately.
