Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Open Arms is located in Palm Coast, Florida. We adopt our dogs within a 75 mile radius from Jacksonville (north) to New Smyrna Beach (south). On occasions, we adopt to other locations within Florida if potential adopters are willing to drive to Palm Coast to meet a dog that interests them.

About Our Rescue Group:

*MAKING A DIFFERENCE…….ONE DOG AT A TIME* Open Arms, a non-profit dog rescue organization, is the “last resort” for shelter dogs that are due to be euthanized because of over-crowding and cost of needed medical attention. We also rescue neglected, abused and abandoned dogs found in puppy mills, on the streets, or with owners that surrender their dogs for any number of reasons. These lucky dogs arrive in foster care and live safely in the homes of volunteers. Each receives vaccinations, spay/neuter, dental, microchip, good nourishment, training and love-love-love before placement with wonderful families.

Come Meet our Pets:

Open Arms rescue dogs live safely in the homes of our volunteers. They are loved just like one of our own fur kids. When a photo and description on our site simply melts your heart, please contact us. Once the adoption process begins, an appointment can be made for you to meet the dog in its foster home.

Our Adoption Process:

The adoption process begins when you contact us after finding a dog on our site that calls to your heart. A phone interview followed by completion of an adoption application is next. A meet-and-greet is arranged and if there is a "connection" by both person(s) and dog, a contract is signed. An adoption donation (usually $150)helps to offset the dog's veterinary expenses. Before an Open Arms dog becomes an official member of the family, a home visit is made to ensure the dog's well-being and safety.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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