Ryan is a big teddy bear.  He weighs 75 pounds but still thinks he’s a lap dog. Ryan has a beautiful golden coat with black around his face.  He  is great on a leash, understands commands, and with his curiosity he could probably learn tricks.  He will typically bark once or twice as a greeting, but his big fluffy tail will be wagging to say welcome, and come play with me.  Ryan is house trained and will probably like to sleep either in a crate or out.  

Ryan has a few specifics he wants in a new home:  he wants to be the only dog in the house; he will playfully grab your arm or hand with his mouth to play (not biting, only playing); he is also sort of weirded out over a fish tank (go figure).  He is such a loving dog and will make a great companion.  

Our Adoption Center & Spay Clinic is open 6 days a week 12-5 (closed Sunday) or email us at for more information.  We are located at 571 NE 44th Street, the NW corner of Prospect (44th) and 6th in Oakland Park, FL.  Our application is available online: where you can also view all of our adoptable dogs and cats.

About Animal Aid, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

We are an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill animal rescue shelter and adoption center. Our shelter takes in emergency, abuse and neglect cases as well as dogs and cats from various (high-kill) animal control agencies in Palm Beach, Dade and Broward Counties in South Florida. We offer cats and dogs for adoption at our adoption center in Oakland Park, FL. We have a spay/neuter clinic in-house and a mobile unit stationed in Boca Raton, FL as well as a sanctuary in Naples, FL. We are a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization which relies solely on donations.

One of our goals is to address the overpopulation problem of stray and feral cats by offering the public low cost spay/neuter program.

Our Adoption Process...

Since our animals were homeless, we wish to ensure that their next home is permanent. To do this, we carefully screen applicants to establish that the needs of both the animal and the adoptive home will be met. A prospective adoptive owner must:

Complete an application for a dog or cat. Our board will review the application to determine if you and the chosen pet are a good match.

Pay an adoption donation. Being a non-profit rescue, we do not "sell" pets. All tax-deductible donations are placed in a fund to care for our animals.

Our adoption donation is:
