This page explains what programs we can offer you, our community, whether you are a family looking for a four-legged addition, an existing pet owner, or another animal-welfare organization. This list of programs will continue to grow as our resources do, because we're here to help animals, any way we can.
You can find us on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Pet Supermarket on Port Saint Lucie Blvd. and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Petco in Saint Lucie West. If we're not there, it's because we don't currently have adoptable pets. Why? We don't have a facility, so we rely on people like you to foster animals in our care, and we desperately need fosters. Also, some pets in foster homes may not yet be adoptable because we are working to resolve medical and/or behavioral issues.
We also bring our pets to community events, to boost their chances of meeting their forever families. So look for us in bright yellow t-shirts and look for dogs wearing "Adopt Me" bandanas.
Pet Food Pantry
Can't afford to feed your pet? It's OK. We understand that sometimes finances just get too tight. We're here to help. Thanks to local retail and private donors, we're able to maintain a small pet food pantry to help individuals who need assistance providing for their pets' nutritional needs.
We may not have your preferred brand, and bags of pet food may not be in the best shape, because we often get what stores can't sell. But it's what we feed our fosters, and if we have extra, we're happy to share. And, if we can't help, we will direct you to other local organizations that may be able to.
Many of the pets we help never come into our custody. That's because part of what we do is provide rescue assistance to other groups dedicated to saving the lives of homeless pets. Sometimes, this means transporting pets from kill shelters to rescues that can't pick up the animals themselves. Other times, it means finding breed-specific rescues for animals facing death in shelters and facilitating transfers.
To us, all that matters is that the animals are saved, and regardless of what organization ultimately finds these pets forever homes, we count them as our successes too!
