About Humane Society Pet Rescue FL Inc
About Our Shelter...
We carry on our mission from funding given by the generosity of the general public. The more help we get the more work we can do for the animals.
MISSION: Our mission is to stop needless euthanasia. We have a no kill policy! The volunteers work very hard to educate the general public about treating pets more humanely by offering advice on, training, feeding, grooming, offering low cost spay and neutering vouchers, and preventive medications.
When funds allow, we help the public owning pets during hardships. Here's what we do after a pet is surrendered to us; we temperament test the pet, then we treat the pet for any medical conditions, and grooming. This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, preventatives, behavior issues, etc.
When our dogs are ready to go up for adoption they are promoted to find a forever home through our adoption process. In some cases home visits are done prior to placement.

Our Adoption Process...
All dogs have been temperament tested, are current on their shots, have been heartworm tested, on flea and heartworm preventative monthly. If hw positive on treatment. Many of our dogs have had some training.
Adult dogs are spayed or neutered vaccinated before adoption and for puppies we require a refundable deposit at the time of adoption that will be refunded once the puppy has been spayed/neutered. Deposit is an additional $50.00
We take appointments or a potential adopter can come into our office when open, which is Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturdays, from 10 am till 3 pm. We are closed all holiday weekends.
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs please go to our website to fill out an online application. The website is www.animalrescueokeechobee.org.
If you have children or other pets it is better to bring them in with an appointment to make sure that we make the best match possible for the family. Our dogs are not tested for cat companionship. Feel free to bring your pet with you to meet the new pet. We take precautions so no one gets hurt.
