About Our Rescue Group:

The Florida Humane Society is dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted companion pets through adoption, as well as aggressively striving to reduce the pet population through spay and neuter programs, and an overall commitment to increase the awareness of our community of the ongoing issues of understanding our domestic and feral animal population.

Organization History

Incorporated as a nonprofit charitable organization, a 501(c)3,The Florida Humane Society, Inc., (a No-Kill Organization), has been in operation since 1993.


We have spayed/neutered thousands of animals (over 3,500 each year), both companion and feral, since we started. We take in the unwanted companion animals and animals from death row. We take care of their medical needs, including spay/neuter, and find them good and loving homes, about 2,800 per year. A few are feral cats that must be relocated after healing.

We are a volunteer based organization. There is such a need for us to do more than we are doing now. We receive numerous calls everyday from individuals and companies that want us to trap feral cats for them and from people who need to give up their companion animals. We want to be able to help them and respond to even more calls. Our volunteers have a lot of heart, love, compassion, patience, and energy, but have very limited funds.

We have come a long way since the beginning in 1993; however, we still have a long way to go..............

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.
