A 9667 US Highway 129, Live Oak, FL 32060 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
1 - 3 of 3 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We are based out of Live Oak, Florida and our home base is Suwannee County. However our organization typically serves the Suwannee Valley region of Florida, including these additional counties: Hamilton, Taylor, Dixie, Lafayette, Madison, and parts of Columbia county.
Suwannee PAWS, Inc. is a small reduced-cost spay/neuter clinic based out of Live Oak, Florida. Although we are not an animal shelter, we were overwhelmed with calls since the day our doors opened in 2014 with unwanted companion animals, especially cats and kittens. Our county faces tremendous pet overpopulation. We began a small foster-based program to divert some of these kittens from the shelters, as of 2017 we helped save over 400 cats and kittens. We work with our two animal shelters in Suwannee County, Florida and we select adoptable animals including those who need behavioral modification or who cannot thrive in the shelter environment. We also help stray community cats. Please note that at this time 85% of the costs to prepare each cat for adoption are being donated by our organization, there is no budget in our county for these animals. Please consider donating to our cause to help more shelter pets. Average cost to get a cat to adoption including all medical services and topicals: $150 per pet. Medical cases or cases with bloodwork or respiratory/disease treatment: $180 to $250 per cat. We keep our adoption fee low so that we can move more cats. Thank you for your support adopting a homeless cat!
At this time our pets may be in one of four locations:
1) In foster care
2) At a PetSmart (currently Lake City, Florida)
3) At the Suwannee County Animal Services municipal shelter in McAlpin, Florida
4) At the city of Live Oak Animal Control facility
Because our facility is a spay/neuter clinic, you are welcomed to drop by but our animals are only there the day they are having surgery. We do not board animals at our location. Thank you for your understanding of our unique situation!
