Local Rescue Strives To Leave No Dog Behind

Hound Haven rescue group

Established in 2000, Houndhaven rescues dogs and puppies from euthanasia at kill shelters and other life threatening circumstances. They spend whatever is necessary to return them to good health and care for them until they can be placed in loving homes or with another rescue group.

They believe that these lives are precious, and Houndhaven is strictly a no kill organization. Their mission is life. Houndhaven sees its mission as including the provision of any and all medical care necessary to fully rehabilitate a dog before it is adopted.

Further, once the dog is adopted, families agree that if they become unable to care for the dog, due to medical expense or otherwise, the dog will be returned to Houndhaven in lieu of euthanasia or being sent to another shelter. Houndhaven is fully dedicated to ensuring all of its dogs find forever homes that are equally committed to that dog’s health and emotional wellbeing.

Florida Dachshund Rescue group

the Florida Dashshund rescue group

It’s time once again for another spotlight on one of our local pet rescue groups! This time I want to talk about Florida Dachshund Rescue. As the name implies they are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping neglected and abused dachshunds.

Basically they are a group of people with a love for dachshunds who do many things to help find good loving homes for unwanted and abused dachshunds. They take in dachshunds shelters may not take due to their weak condition and nurse them back to health, among other things.

These dogs are taken care of by volunteers and then put up for adoption when they are ready. You can go to their website below and see what ones are ready or soon will be ready for adoption.

New services now at Lovey Loaves pet care

New services now at Lovey Loaves pet care

A while back I made an article about Lovey Loaves, a pet sitting service here in Orlando. They now have greatly expanded their types of services and pet care so I wanted to share that with you all here.

Lovey Loaves still offers great pet sitting and dog walking services in the Orlando area. But now they are also branching out to help rescue and care for lost and unwanted pets in several different ways.

They now have established LoveyLoaves Inc., an organization that reunites lost pets with their owners and acts as a resource within the community on animal welfare and education.

Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida

Poodle rescue of Florida

A staggering number of dogs are abandoned or abused in Florida every year. Some end up on the streets, trying to fend for themselves, and some wind up in shelters, desperately hoping for forever homes.

And you know what usually awaits the dogs that don’t find good homes – they’re often euthanized. Too often, this is the case with older dogs and with dogs that have special needs.

Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida is a non-profit organization staffed by heroes. They take dogs that no one else wants, including dogs on “death row.” Once the dogs are taken in, their health needs are assessed and veterinary care is provided.

Candy’s Cats, local Orlando cat rescue organization

Candy's cats rescue group

I try to write about the many Orlando, Florida area pet rescue organizations and groups who do so much to help and save homeless and unwanted pets. Today I want to call your attention to Candy’s Cats!

Adopting a cat as a family pet is a wise choice. If you’re planning to adopt a kitten and take care of him, then you should go directly to Candy’s Cats. This is a not-for-profit corporation based in Orlando, Florida.

The volunteers who work at Candy’s Cats take care of the kittens they find and give them out for adoption. The sight of a kitten might be irresistible, but the decision to adopt a cat should be made only if you are ready for a long-term commitment.
