Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Our home kill shelters we rescue from are located in Brevard County Florida but we also rescue from our neighboring Orange County from time to time! We also do our best to help dogs avoid the shelters all together when we can! If people find stray dogs with no claim, people that have family members pass and nowhere for the dog to go, etc...

About Our Rescue Group:

Fire Chick Rescue Dogs is a group effort rescue of people who reach out to our local kill shelters to save lives... We are a variety of people who do all sorts of things to help save animals that other people turn their backs on. We rescue, transport, foster, network, donate, fund raise, educate, take photos, volunteer, visit.... you name it, each and EVERY one of us do SOMETHING to help!!

ALL of our dogs are Spayed/Neutered, up to date on all shots, and Microchipped before adoption!!!

Saving as many lives as possible, one at a time ♥

Come Meet our Pets:

We work completely out of foster homes so all of our donations, adoption fees, etc.. can go DIRECTLY back into our dogs and to save the next ones.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process begins with an adoption application, you can email us requesting an application for a specific dog, we will email it to you then you can easily complete it and email it back to us. We are VERY prompt with getting back in touch with the applicant. After approval of an application, we then set up a meet and greet with the dog of interest. Once the meet is a success we then conduct a home visit and an adoption contract is signed.

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.
