About Our Shelter...
The mission of Safe Animal Shelter is to provide a temporary safe haven for lost, abandoned, mistreated, and unwanted cats and dogs until they are adopted into a permanent home, and to advocate spay and neuter as the most effective and humane means to reduce animal overpopulation.
Safe Animal Shelter is Clay County's oldest no-kill shelter, created for the purpose of preserving and providing quality of life for lost, abandoned, abused and unwanted pets. The first facility opened in Orange Park in the summer of 1991 and continued to operate at that location until moving to a new facility in Middleburg, December 6, 2003. Since its inception, Safe Animal Shelter has provided loving care to over 12,000 cats and dogs until adopted into forever homes.
All rescued animals at the Safe Animal Shelter are provided food, shelter, loving care, attention, socialization, recreation, exercise and quality medical treatment. Medical treatment includes vaccinations, spay/neuter, heartworm treatment, corrective surgery and other needed services. Once residents are recovered and ready for adoption, they are placed in carefully screened permanent homes.
Safe Animal Shelter receives no government funding, so private donations from individuals, groups and businesses make a huge difference in the day to day stay in the shelter.
