There are still dogs and cats from the surrender, that while being taken care of, need a forever home. If you are in the position to adopt a new furry friend here’s a list of the following rescues that participated:

  • Safe Animal Shelter Middleburg
  • S.A.F.E. of St. Augustine
  • Ana’s Angels
  • Paw Paws pet rescue

  • Homemade Hounds
  • Dogs and cats are also at Clay County Animal Services, available for adoption
