Pet Rescue & Adoption

It is estimated that over 400,000 cats and dogs are taken into shelters every year in the state of Florida.

The good news is that the numbers of euthanized pets have been reduced in the last 10 years due to people like you rescuing and adopting these furry friends, as well as the responsible increase and access to spay and neuter programs.

And while that statement seems promising, the truth is that many shelters do not track data or make it readily available. And the intake numbers don’t stop.

The Humane Society gives 10 reasons to adopt your next pet:

  1. Because you’ll save a life
  2. Because you’ll get a great animal
  3. Because it’ll cost you less
  4. Because of the bragging rights
  5. Because it’s one way to fight puppy mills
  6. Because your home will thank you
  7. Because all pets are good for your health, but adoptees offer an extra boost
  8. Because adoption helps more than just one animal
  9. Because The Shelter Pet Project makes it easy
  10. Because you’ll change a homeless animal’s whole world

And the ASPCA’s #1 reason for adopting a pet is that “You’re Saving More Than One Life – It goes without saying that when you adopt a rescue pet, you’re saving a life—but you’re actually saving more than one. By adopting, you’re helping make space for another animal in need and helping to give them the opportunity to become beloved pets.

The New York Times states, “Rescuing an animal has become a badge of honor,” said Matt Bershadker, the president and chief executive of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “People proudly go to dog parks and walk around their neighborhoods talking about the animal that they rescued from a shelter.”

So when you or your family are ready to take that leap into the special unconditional love you can only get from an adorable rescued dog or cat, look to your local animal shelters and make space in your heart for a furry new friend, while they make space for another animal in need.
