available for adoption
Occasionally we have puppies/dogs available for adoption. Usually they
come to us as stray, undernourished puppies and are fostered by Louise
and Jim Clark. They are vetted, socialized, spay/neutered, de-wormed and
vaccinated. When they are ready to find permanent loving homes, we list
them on www.Petfinder.com. You can view pictures and updated information on
them by going to
http://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelterid=FL627&preview=1 . This
site will explain our adoption requirements and fees.
past year we accepted 4 puppies from 2 rescue situations. We kept 2 at
the sanctuary (Lab/Hound mixed) Wally and Rosie. Their estimated
birthdates are December, 2010. Rosie was adopted into a wonderful loving
home with the Brock Family from Newberry, FL. Wally is waiting for his
family. We then accepted a sweet male yellow lab named Benson who is the
same age as Wally. They get along great!
family are presently fostering 2 loving puppies (Rottie/Hound) Abbey and
Lady Bug. Their estimated birthdates are December, 2011. Both are
loving, healthy, socialized and available for adoption.

"Match Maker Program"
Most animals we
take in stay here for the remainder of their lives. However, we have limited
means and space to care for the huge numbers of farm animals needing placement.
If you are interested, in caring for a farm animal in need, consider our...
We invite you to
fill out an adoption application (copy and paste it into an email first) and
submit it for pre-approval. Your application will be reviewed and filed. When we
are contacted regarding a farm animal in need, which we can't take, we will
reference our most suitable applications on file. Most requests are regarding
potbellied pigs (and mixed), goats, bunnies, old & disabled horses, cats and
we take the "Match Maker Program" very seriously. We look for permanent and safe
homes. People who are willing to provide a safe, challenging, healthy and
comfortable environment are most desired. Also, it's important that the property
be owned not rented and zoned for that particular animal. Agricultural (AG)
zoning has many sub-codes which denote what the land can be used for. The most
difficult to find is AG property which allows pigs and chickens. Counties vary
on restrictions regarding how many of each type animal may be kept per acre. Please
check your specific limitations. Unlike animals
farmed for food, we look for life long homes where they will be happy and safe.
Also, we do not assist in placing animals to breed or eat.
Farmed animals are genetically altered to grow large quickly.
They are often
over bred, kept in small controlled areas and considered more of a commodity
than the sentient beings which they are. Animals who could potentially live 10,
20 and 50 years, live a few weeks or 1-2 years of age in the farming industry.
Their feed, environment and medical is different than those cared for with
expectations to live full
quality lives. We are always available to help you find answers to questions
concerning their care.
