My story

"Listen!  I hear you are needing a really good dog. You really need to stop and read about ME - Stormi!"
Rescued by a good Samaritan as a stray when she was still just a tiny puppy, Stormi has grown up safe and loved. She is still young (probably born around July 2020) so has a bit more puppyhood to go through, but her size will probably stay about the same, at a nice medium (40ish lbs). Besides being an absolutely gorgeous dog with with a fabulous set of ears, she really has proven herself to be the best of buddies! She's friendly with people, loves to snuggle, good with other dogs and cats,  eager-to-please, knows sit, paw, down and come. Stormi is house trained in her foster home but might need a - she ques by standing at the door. She is comfortable in a crate and that is where she sleeps at night or stays if the family is away from home. When foster mom is at home working, Stormi is napping right next to her. Two more things we really want you to know about Stormi. She is a high-energy pup so we think she would do best with another dog to play with and a fenced yard to run in. Also, Stormi does have a potential special need. In November 2020 she was diagnosed by University of Florida Veterinary Hospital to have a congenital defect (present since birth) technically described as pulmonic stenosis. Wanting to give this special girl the best chance, VOCAL elected for her to have surgery to correct this. We are delighted to share that although she continues on a daily medication as a safeguard, Stormi is lively, athletic and unimpaired. More details can be provided by an adoption counselor after submitting an adoption application.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

To learn all about our adoption process please visit the following link:

We require an adoption fee for both dogs and cats, an application, and a home visit. We end the process with our adoption contract.

If you are interested in applying for one of our animals, please visit our website Our dog and cat applications can be found under the "Paperwork" heading or on the "Adopt" page.

We accept multiple applications on all of our animals; we believe in finding the best fit home. We don't place animals on a first come, first serve basis. Once we receive your application, we will reach out to you to review your application IF we feel you could potentially provide the best fit home for the animal.

Go meet their pets

We DO NOT have a shelter facility open to the public. We are a foster based program so most of our animals live with our volunteers. We think this is pretty great! Having adoptable animals in foster homes teaches them pet manners such as housebreaking and social skills. It also allows us to learn a lot about the animals and helps us determine the type of home the animal will be most successful in.

If you are wondering how to meet an animal you are interested in adopting, you have to fill out an application first. Then, if we feel you could be a fit, we set up a home visit and meet and greet with the animal.

More about this rescue

We have seen the issues of pet overpopulation firsthand. Our board members and volunteers have worked with local animal shelters and have seen the thousands of animals in Marion County that have nowhere to go, who are often abandoned and/or killed. We also recognize the strength of the human-animal bond and have witnessed the situations that animals often fall into during a family crisis. We have made it our mission to help these animals. We hope you will join us!
