My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Joey is 4 years old and weighs 55 lbs. He has a story to tell with his eyes. When Joey came to us he was 25 pounds (see pics 2 & 3) and traumatized beyond belief. We have no idea where he came from as he was found standing in front of a garage door in a residential neighborhood frozen with fear. No one in the area recognized him at all. Joey has come along way since his rescue however he needs to move onto his forever home. He will need someone with lots of love and patience, someone that will enjoy taking all of Joey’s baby steps towards recovery with him. Joey will blossom, he just needs time and a very special somebody. If you think you could be Joey’s special someone please consider meeting him. His adoption fee is $350.

Additional adoption info

Our fees vary from $250 to $350. We do charge more for pure breeds ($400). We realize that our adoption fees can be high, but as we are not subsidized we have to rely on monies generated from adoptions to pay our medical expenses. That is the only way we can continue helping animals.

Go meet their pets

Our pets can be seen by appointment. As we are a foster network, our available pets are living in our homes with us. Please call us at 954-472-8667 to make arrangements to meet them.

More about this rescue

We are an all volunteer run "no-kill" rescue group which takes in and places for adoption unwanted pets. We do not have a shelter but operate as a foster network. We rely solely on volunteers to provide foster homes for our pets until they are permanently placed in adoptive homes.
