About Our Rescue Group...
We are are a small South Florida rescue organization based in the Fort Lauderdale area and dedicated to the well-being of lost, abandoned, and unwanted animals. We do not have a shelter, so our rescues live within our own private foster homes where we provide temporary, safe refuge. Living in a home environment provides unique advantages. Unlike shelter or kennel living, fostering in a home environment allows the personal evaluation of each dog for behavior and temperament issues. Generally, we know how our dogs react to other animals, children or strangers. This allows us to find the best possible, permanent home match for each dog's size and needs. Purebreed Rescue relies exclusively on private donations to provide food, shelter and medical care, including the sterilization of pets that we rescue.
Purebreed Rescue of South Florida:
-receives no funding from any government entity or animal charity
-relies solely on private donations
-is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff
Our Adoption Process...
HOW TO ADOPT
If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, you MUST follow these steps. (1) You MUST first complete and submit an online application. (2) If your application is approved and we believe the pet is a perfect match for you, we will contact within one week to make an appointment for you to meet the animal that interests you at its foster home in Fort Lauderdale area. (3) In the event that we do not respond to your to your application submittal within one week, we have either dissapproved your application or found a better match for the pet. (4) If you application is approved and you are contacted, and if all goes well after meeting the pet, we will then conduct a home visit. (5) Generally several days later you will be able to pick up the animal. At that time you will be expected to bring a leash and harness for your pet.
The donation fee for each animal varies, but generally is $150 and up, unless otherwise noted. Some of our animals are long-term rescues, which utilizes greater sums of money for medical care, food and housing. In order to defer a portion of this added expense, we attempt to receive a higher donation fee for our more desirable adoptable animals.
Due to the necessity of a home visit, we only adopt locally. Because we are locatated in Fort Lauderdale, we usually limit adoptions to Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach Counties. Occasionally, exceptions will be made.
