Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Who we are
Our mission is very simple:
We love and care for all animals in need.
We provide temporary homes for the animals.
We also have a long-term safe place for the ones that cannot be adopted.
Our work is done by a network of volunteer foster homes, other rescues, and Georgeann's own Nature Coast Safe Place.
Serving the Tampa Bay area and the Florida Suncoast since 1998.
Georgeanns Homeless Hounds & Foster Program of Florida, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This means that all your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. It also means that we do not have to pay taxes on your donations and that every penny you donate will go the dogs and cats and whatever else comes to our door. We have not received any grants. We are a no-kill organization and our animals rely on people just like you and me.
Everyone deserves a second chance - at Georgeanns Homeless Hounds and Nature Coast Safe Place everyone gets that. No matter how long it takes.
It may take us up to a year to find someone to adopt them, or we may never find someone to adopt them, but one thing is for sure: They will always have a loving home at Georgeanns Homeless Hounds or one of our foster homes until the day comes and they go where the healing waters flow.
We do not put our kids to sleep when they are not adopted. The only time we do so is when they are in pain and we cannot stop their pain with medication or when they are so aggressive that George and Georgeann cannot handle them. The latter almost never happens. Almost every single one of the pets that came to Homeless Hounds and was called "too aggressive" is now very well-behaved and lives very happily with all the other kids at Georgeanns Homeless Hounds. We understand animals and we know how to treat them and how they want to be treated.
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.
