Pet owners facing financial difficulties can receive food for their pets on an emergency temporary basis through our Pet Food Pantry. Homebound pet owners are also served through this program.
Besides offering pet food, we also pay for veterinary costs for pet owners in financial need. This includes emergency surgery, annual exams, sterilization procedures, vaccinations and other important care.
Although our main mission is to keep pets in their forever homes, there are situations when an animal needs to be rescued. We rescue these homeless and needy pets. We then facilitate their adoption into good homes. This sometimes includes placing the animal in foster care home until we find them a proper home. We provide food and care while these pets are in foster care.
Unlike puppies and kittens, large and "so-called" dangerous breeds can be hard to place. We facilitate foster care alternatives when the owners of these dogs become homeless. We provide food and care for these dogs while they are in foster care.
We provide pet food and care, on a sliding scale, to seniors who are in financial need. This allows seniors, who are often alone, to keep their beloved pets.
Currently, Florida does not provide social worker visitation or nursing care services to help seniors living alone keep their pets.
Our services of food and care help seniors in financial need keep their companions. This keeps pets out of shelters and helps these seniors maintain their independent lives.
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to assist South Florida pet owners in financial crisis. We provide emergency pet food and vet care. Together, we can make a difference.
