Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
FOCCAS is a registered charity in the State of FL and has 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. We have no paid employees or directors. We are 100% volunteer-based. All donations are used to help the animals. Our volunteers & fosters provide their own transportation for themselves and shelter pets to adoption events, veterinary care, and other rescue groups. Often our pets require extensive medical care for conditions or injuries that are beyond the scope of shelter medicine. Surgeries and x-rays are the most common. We rely entirely on donations and fundraising efforts.
All our pets are kept by fosters in their homes, we have no "kennel facility". All our pets are indoor, companion animals - we DO NOT offer any sort of guard or yard dogs EVER !
There is a required donation for all adoptions that varies by dog, please refer to the description for a given dog's requested donation. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, current on rabies, distemper/parvo & Bordetella vaccinations, heartworm tested, wormed, on flea and heartworm preventative and microchipped.
You may call us @ 352-201-8664 if you have questions about the adoption process OR email us anytime @ info@FriendsofCCAS.com.
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.
