Gainesville and surrounding areas

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible animal rescue organization whose mission is to save as many animals as possible. We work closely with Alachua County Animal Services to reduce euthanasias at the Alachua County shelter.

We adopt dogs and cats of all ages to good homes at the Gainesville Petsmart (Butler Plaza on Archer Rd, click for a map) every Saturday and Sunday. We have a great selection of adoptable animals, including puppies, adult dogs, small dogs, cats, and kittens. All of our animals have been started on vaccinations (depending on how long they have been with us, they may need further vaccinations after adoptions). All have been vet checked and treated for any notable illness. All dogs are heartworm negative and many have been through heartworm treatment in our program. Some of these animals may have special needs, all of which are discussed at time of adoption.

We often have specials on adult animal adoptions. Not that these animals have flaws, but they are slightly used and may not be perfect! These are adult animals looking for a permanent home and they have many different stories of their pasts and all deserve a second chance at the good life.

Our Adoption Process:

Potential adopters must fill out an application and take part in an interview. This process helps us to make better matches between potential adopters and adoptable pets. It is provides the opportunity to educate a potential adopter on what to expect after he or she brings home a rescued pet. Once a potential adopter has been approved for adoption we require an adoption fee, which covers the spay or neuter and all age appropriate vaccines for cats, dogs, kittens and puppies. All of our animals are on monthly flea and tick preventative and all dogs and puppies are on monthly heartworm preventative. At the time of adoption we also require the adopter to sign a contract agreeing to provide a loving home with the appropriate vet care as well as food, water, and shelter. In the future, if for any reason the adopter can not keep the pet we require the pet to be returned to our care with the original adoption paperwork.

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.
