My story


Esmerelda is a beautiful long-haired young lady of approximately 5-6 yrs old.  Because of her extreme skittishness around people, she became a member of our sanctuary feral cat program. She graduated from this locale and has since lived in a communal home with other cats where she has become much more at ease with people.  She gets along well with her roommates and enjoys being brushed and petted.  She is a calm kitty - very content to lie about quietly most of the day.  On occasion, she will venture forth and express interest in toys and exploring.  She requires so little to be happy - a tranquil home, a window in the sun and days filled with peacefulness and love.  We feel she would prefer a home with no young children or dogs. Another cat would work out well.

If you are interested in this beauty or would like to meet her or any of the other cats she currently lives with, please contact Alessandra 954-205-0398 for an appointment to meet this or one of the many others in our feral cat area.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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:

Puppies/Dogs - $100-$300 includes heartworm, ehrlichia, lyme test, spay or neuter, rabies vaccine, 5 way series of puppy vaccines, fecal exam, deworming, Frontline (de-flea/tick), ear mite treatment, microchip (lifetime implant identification system), vet checkup, and initial grooming.

Kittens - $75.00 includes: Spay or neuter (when old enough), leukemia test, fecal exam, rabies vaccine (when old enough), entire series of kitten vaccines, flea control, both deworming treatments and one vet visit.

Cats - $60.00 includes: Spay or neuter, aids/leukemia test, fecal exam, rabies vaccine, 5-way combo vaccine, flea control and one vet visit.

Go meet their pets

You can meet our adoptable pets at our Adoption Center in Oakland Park, FL (call for directions and hours 754-223-5378)

More about this 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.
