Florida Rescues

Please let me know if any are outdated or if you would like to add yours.
This listing is ONLY for Florida-based groups.

If you are looking for contacts in your area, and don't find one,

try contacting one of the people listed below -- they might be able to help you.

Just because they are listed as being in one part of the state (or country) does not mean it's their only area.


** As of 2013, I will only list websites;

individual email addresses are no longer listed **




Check out the listing of Florida Humane Societies & County Animal Shelters

DISCLAIMER: The Webmaster does not specifically endorse any of these groups.

I saw the need for a list to be posted and maintained.

If you plan to adopt, please remember that you can interview them too.
