Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve the Greater Jacksonville/First Coast area but welcome adopters from anywhere within 3 hours driving distance of our home base in Green Cove Springs, Florida.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who love animals and who want to make a difference in reducing the pet overpopulation in our communities.

All animals are examined by a veterinarian and then placed into appropriate foster homes where they are nurtured both physically and emotionally until loving, permanent homes can be found. All necessary medical care is provided for our rescued animals until which time they leave our care. No animal is every destroyed or euthanized simply to make room for new arrivals.

We are strong advocates for Responsible Pet Ownership and Spay/Neuter. Every single animal in our adoption program is sterilized BEFORE adoption so that we do not in any way contribute to pet overpopulation.

We operate solely out of a love for the animals and the need to make a difference in the lives of so many animals who have no voice of their own and no means to take care of themselves without our help and compassion..

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not operate with a physical shelter at this time. However, our volunteers meet as a group with fostered animals almost every Saturday at either:
PetSmart, 6000 Lake Gray Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32244
OR,
Petco,1999 East West Parkway, Fleming Island, FL 32003.

We also have cats/kittens available for viewing and adoption every day in the the adoption centers at both store locations.

Application and personal interview with our Adoption Coordinator are required before any adoption can be finalized.

Our Adoption Process:

The adoption fees:
Cats: $$50 - $100
includes testing for feline leukemia/FIV, testing and treatment for intestinal parasites as needed, initial vacciantions, monthly Advantage treatment as needed and sterilization

The adoption process includes an application, personal interview and home visit in some instances. Final approval is based upon a good "match" for both the adoptive family and the pet.

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.
