Siberian Husky Rescue of Florida

The Siberian Husky is a very unique breed. Their friendly and outgoing temperaments make them a great all-round dog. As with so many animals, many Siberian Huskies are abused, neglected and abandoned every year and are in great need of loving care and both foster and forever homes.

Siberian Husky Rescue of Florida ,Inc. have directly and indirectly helped to save 920 dogs since their incorporation in December of 1999!

The mission of the Siberian Husky Rescue of Florida, Inc. is to rescue stray, abused, surrendered and unwanted Siberian Huskies.

The purpose of this not for profit organization, is to assist area animal control agencies, Humane Societies, and Siberian Husky owners with the humane care and disposition of these amazing animals.

Adopting an animal is a lifetime commitment to the love, care, health and safety of that animal. Neither more nor less than one would expect when adopting a human child. The adopter is not supplying a home to something that is “just a dog”. If you adopt a young Husky and they do what most every young dog does – have bathroom accidents in the house, chew on your furniture, knock things over and generally just run around having fun you should be tolerant of their actions. They will learn what they are allowed to do and what they are not if you give them a modicum of patience and firm but non-violent instruction.

All SHRF adoptable dogs are spayed/neutered if necessary, treated for heartworm, sarcoptic mange and other diseases, bathed, groomed and microchipped. SHRF provides loving foster homes and they try to crate train, house train and obedience train the dogs as much as possible. SHRF ensures all their dogs are up to date with their vaccines, flea and tick treatments. The required adoption amount is carefully calculated to cover only the most basic expenses for an individual dog. Many dogs come to SHRF with abuse or medical problems and they spend only what is necessary to get the dog back to good health. If required, SHRF will pay the animal shelter adoption fees to take these dogs out of the shelters, saving them from being euthanized in most instances, and then provide the funding for their expenses while being fostered (boarding/food/toys/crates). Every cent taken in by Siberian Husky Rescue of Florida, Inc. goes toward the dogs’ expenses. All personnel are volunteers in the true sense of the word; one who performs or offers to perform a service, out of his or her own free will – without payment. SHRF can almost guarantee that in all but the rarest of cases adopting a Siberian Husky will bring a surprising amount of joy and contentment. Their exuberance, loyalty, affection and penchant for high glee are contagious.


SHRF are in desperate need of Foster homes to help save more Siberians from neglect, abuse, abandonment and illness. These precious fur balls cannot be saved without help. If you can open your heart and home to just one of these beautiful dogs you can make a difference! By becoming a Foster you are not only saving a life, you are helping give a Siberian a chance at a new home…a new life! For more information about fostering, please click HERE 

Can you look into these eyes and not want to help?

An End To Distemper

Distemper is a horrific disease which causes untold distress to infected dogs and heartache for their loving owners. The end result is inevitably the death of a beautiful animal. I have lived and worked with dogs in a country where distemper literally lurks on every street corner. I have watched helplessly while innocent, fragile, adorable pups died one after the other. I have seen this over and over again and the verdict from the vets I spoke to was always the same. There is nothing that can be done. They cannot survive. Somehow I always found it hard to believe that in this day and age, with so many medical and technological advances, that SOMETHING couldn’t be done to cure at least some of these afflicted animals.

When I came upon a wonderful organization called Kind Hearts in Action my heart was lifted with joy. This 501 (c)3 charity believes that there is hope and distemper can be cured with the help of a very special serum. I have a friend whose young dog was treated with the serum at a very early stage of the disease. This young dog not only survived, she is now a very healthy adult.

If you visit the Kind Hearts in Action website, you will see other similar stories.

Project Carré can make a difference.

Project Carré can help save lives.

But they need help.

You Can Help Make History

With Project Carré and your support, the distemper virus and the misery it causes for dogs and their owners can be stopped.  The end of the race against this awful disease is in sight. At the finish line: a widely available treatment for dogs that are suffering and dying.

My own much loved little dog had to be euthanized due to the after effects of distemper. I was and still am heartbroken by her loss. If I had had access to NDV-Induced Serum, perhaps she would still be alive today.

For more than two years, the Save Dogs From Distemper project has tracked the treatment and the outcomes of hundreds of distemper cases thanks to dog owners and vets who have shared their stories with them. Throughout their website there are photos, videos and owner testimonials compiled over the years on the successes (and some failures) of the NDV treatments –  what is missing is the hard scientific evidence that the skeptics have been waiting for.

That’s the goal of Project Carré.

The plan is to work with vets to document and record a group of case studies to submit to a veterinary journal.  The key will be to gather scientifically reliable, consistent data. Participating vets will be reporting on successes and failures according to the standards of scientific inquiry. This is expected to resolve many questions around the NDV treatments, making them more widely available and potentially saving the lives of countless dogs. But this project cannot get started without help and donations.

Case studies will require:

    * Laboratory testing to confirm cases of distemper and status of the virus after treatment

    * Video cameras for vets to document cases before and after treatment

    * The recruitment of dogs for serum donation. (These dogs are not harmed.)

    * Clinic staff and facilities to make NDV-induced serum

    * Storage for NDV-induced serum

    * Administrative costs for maintaining records and consent forms for dog owners

    * Other miscellaneous costs, such as submission fees to veterinary journals

    * Scientific and ethical standards will be maintained throughout the process. All animals will be treated humanely.

    * They also need to recruit more vets willing to participate in this project. If you have a vet who may be interested in participating, please direct them here and ask them to contact for more information.

Gathering credible data will take time, coordination and funding. But, for anyone who loves dogs, this may be the most significant contribution to a cause that you ever make. This is a matter of life and death, and they are so close to winning.  The initial goal is to raise $5,000, but they may need as much as $50,000 by the time they are done. Can you help  by donating just $5 or $10  and asking your friends to do the same?

Just $5 could help change the world for distemper dogs.

Your support can make a difference.

Help them cross the finish line and stop distemper.

Our best friends deserve our very best efforts.

Can You Help?

The numbers of animals in need are still increasing. This is a problem with no end in sight and something that concerns animal lovers the world over. There can never be too many rescue organizations or people willing to sacrifice their lives to help make our world a better place. We all hope that future generations will learn to live in love and harmony and cruelty and neglect will become a thing of the past. To see a rescue organization in danger of closing is truly heartbreaking…..both for the animals currently in their care and for the animals they can and will help in the future if they can receive the necessary funding to continue.

RUFF (Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends) is still in urgent need of help. This organization has suffered greatly due to the Gulf Oil Spill. They are doing all they can to find homes for the 51 dogs they have left at the shelter. Most of their dogs are 5 years and older, which makes finding homes more difficult. RUFF‘s fear is that the dogs will be taken from them if they are unable to provide food and shelter. They are in an extremely hot part of the country and their power bill alone is $2600.

7.24.11 – An Update from the Director of RUFF

Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends aka Ruff has supported military personnel since 2004 in either taking in their dogs, find other no kill shelters to take them when we had no room, or find foster homes to take their beloved pets should they be stationed to a location that doesn’t allow them to take their dogs with them as long as they had orders showing their inability to take their dogs with them. It has been our honor to help in this small way. We have been unable to take in dogs since the Gulf Oil Spill from anyone or from any kill shelter. We have lost our funding since the Gulf Oil Spill and we have been trying to keep our shelter doors open by asking for donations to help us pay utilities, food and vet bills. Our shelter isn’t large enough to “advertise” help for military intakes so we have a form on our website where owners could request to turn in their dog. First priority was given to military personnel who were to be stationed overseas or remote locations that they were unable to take their dog with them. We need your help to keep our shelter doors open and would like to receive funding to help us add additional location near other military bases so that we could expand and help more military personnel. Imagine getting orders to move away knowing that you cannot take your pet and nowhere to take it but the local kill shelter. Nothing is harder on a military person than having to turn in their beloved pet to a kill shelter before being sent away to a remote location. Imagine the stress of not only being sent away but having to give up your pet knowing it will be put down. We have in the past held dogs for their return as well if former owner asked. We do not have and have not had the funding to continue on at this point and need financial help to continue on. Please donate. We need your help.


My mom and dad are sad. I’ve been with them for quite a while and they are moving to a military base that will not allow me to be there. I love them so much but there is no choice. I love the three children that I have been with all these years and now I’m going to lose my children and my mom and dad. Can you please give me a home? I’m a very sweet boy and one of the children when I was adopted was about 6 months old. I’m very sad. Please take me home with you.


These are just some of the RUFF dogs at risk…. RUFF needs  help to care for them and to ensure their survival.

Working to save Boxers

Boxer Rescue Los Angeles (BRLA) is a non-profit organization funded solely by private donations. BRLA believes that every boxer deserves a chance to live a happy life in a loving home. Abandoned or homeless Boxers will always find shelter, medical care, and ultimately a new home through the efforts of BRLA. By working with committed volunteers, local veterinarians, and trainers, they are able to rescue hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched forever homes. Working in conjunction with city and county groups BRLA strives to educate the public and help end animal overpopulation and needless suffering. The commitment to share the love of Boxers is never ending.

BRLA never discriminates on the basis of health or age. All animals are evaluated, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and receive any necessary medical treatment before they are placed in carefully screened homes.

For more information or to make a much needed donation, click here to visit the Boxer Rescue Los Angeles website.

Without Borders Boxer Rescue is a Canadian rescue organization of volunteers who are dedicated to promoting responsible pet ownership and finding homeless Boxers, loving, forever homes with families living in Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan & Washington State. Without Borders Boxer Rescue is affiliated with Boxer Rescue Los Angeles and works with other rescue groups, shelters, veterinarians and breeders.

The dogs that are placed by WBBR are homeless due to no fault of their own.  They come to WBBR via BRLA, local shelters, breeders or are surrendered directly by their previous owners.  They arrive in rescue for various reasons, from allergies, to a family losing their home, to the family having to move, but one thing always stays the same; they are wonderful Boxers who would love to have a forever family to call their own.

Humane Society of Pulaski County


The mission of the Humane Society of Pulaski County is to rescue, care for and find homes for abandoned, abused, homeless and unwanted animals; to reduce suffering of animals; to investigate, prosecute, and prevent abuse; and to reduce the number of homeless animals through adoption, spay/neuter, and through education.

The Humane Society of Pulaski County provides access to low-cost, healthy, inoculated, sterilized animals to people seeking to adopt animals as pets only.

The Humane Society of Pulaski County is a private no-kill shelter, supported solely by donations, fund-raisers, bequests and grants. They have been rescuing animals since 1955 and receive no city, county or state funding.

HSPC maintains a 25,000 square foot shelter, with a clinic, a full-time veterinarian, and staff of 15-20 people caring for over 200 animals. Along with a strong volunteer program, they clean, feed, walk, train, exercise, love, and find good homes for these animals in need.

HSPC also has a special community outreach program, called Puppy Love, which takes puppies (and sometimes kittens) to visit residents of nursing homes, retirement centers, and women’s shelters. Touching and hugging these little pups, and receiving their unconditional love, uplifts the morale and the well-being of these citizens.The Puppy Love program makes approximately 40 visits to local facilities each year. Some of these visits were made with school or church service clubs, providing the added benefit of teaching young people the benefit of giving their time to help others.

By caring for homeless animals, investigating and acting on reports of animal abuse and neglect, as well as making low-cost pet ownership available, HSPC provides a needed and very beneficial service to the community.

HSPC also has a Humane Education program, which works to teach and respect for animals, proper pet care, and responsibility and to educate towards ending animal abuse and overpopulation.

HSPC has a huge amount of cats, dogs, horses and donkeys in need of permanent, loving homes. Here is a selection of just a few of them.

Orange County Cavy Haven

There are literally thousands of dogs and cats in need of adoption to loving, caring, permanent homes. However, we mustn’t forget there there are thousands of other animals, big and small, also in just as much need.

Orange County Cavy Haven is a non-profit organization dedicated to rehoming guinea pigs in Southern California. They rescue abandoned guinea pigs from shelters in Orange and Los Angeles counties.

OCCH guinea pigs are rehabilitated, socialized, and fostered by volunteers until they are ready to be adopted.

Orange County Cavy Haven was founded in 2003 as a rescue for guinea pigs. They are based in Orange County, but rescue guinea pigs from L.A. and Bay Area shelters as well. They also have foster homes in L.A. County.

New foster homes are always needed for temporary placement of guinea pigs waiting to be adopted. Please help OCCH rescue more guinea pigs from shelters. To ask about fostering, please contact

Why cavies need rescuing

Many people buy guinea pigs in pet stores, while guinea pigs are being euthanized in shelters, primarily due to limited space and lack of adopters.

But why do guinea pigs wind up in shelters? Primarily, they come from homes where they were considered to be cheap, disposable “pocket pets” useful as starter animals for children. Since pet stores usually do a terrible job of educating people about cavy care, these guinea pigs are frequently neglected and unhealthy.

So what does a rescue do? Well, they maintain contact with volunteers at the shelters, and when guinea pigs arrive, they notify OCCH, who try to make space. Priority is always given to guinea pigs in high-kill shelters or those who charge only a minimum adoption fee, because reptile owners often seek out these shelters for snake food.

Check out these beautiful OCCH guinea pigs in need of care and adoption.
