Pet's Name: Luna

Age: 2 years

Spayed/Neutered: YES

Luna is a 'love bug'.  She is a laid back, gentle, and playful Domestic Shorthair cat who loves to be held or just sit in your lap and be petted. She also likes tummy rubs. Luna needs a quiet home where she will be an INDOOR only cat. She likes dogs and gets along good with them as long as they are calm. I think she would do good in a home with another laid back cat. Luna is FIV(Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) positive but she doesn't care about that, she just wants a loving, forever home of her own. She is healthy and doesn't require any medical treatment for the FIV. We give her Lysine treats, which she loves, to boost her immune system.

Here is where you can find out more about FIV- 

Luna is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on all her vaccines and has been given a flea preventative(Revolution). There is a $25 re-homing fee. She will go to her new home with her toys, bowl, food, cardboard scratcher, collar with current rabies license tag, litter box, and any cat litter she has left.

If you are interested in giving Luna a great forever home and would like to meet her please contact Debbie at 904-651-1355 or Ashleigh by email-

Zara is a wonderfully loving and loyal spayed female, who needs a new home. She is an 80-pound lab/pointer mix who often likes to occupy laps. She is almost 3 years old and wants to be the alpha dog, something we can't give to her in our multi-pet home. She has never been around children, but I think she prefers it that way! Up-to-date on all shots and heartworm prevention, house-and crate-trained, and perfectly healthy except for the hip dysplasia she was born with and a back knee that pops when she walks. Pain meds keep discomfort under control, and we will be happy to give you what we have left. She can't wait to be the top dog in a loving home!

Call Bill at 645-6175 for more info or to arrange a meet and greet!

Pet's Name: Jackson

Age: 7 years

Breed: Border Collie / Retriever Mix

Spayed or Neutered?: Yes

Hi! I'm Jackson. I am a very loyal friend that loves to cuddle. I have been through doggie boot camp and know a good bit of commands. My current owners have raised me since I was 8 weeks and are having a really hard time making the decision to find me a new home. They have a two-year old and are about to have another baby which doesn't leave much time for me now. I would like to be in a home with no children or other male dogs. I seem to be happier that way. I enjoy exercise and being loved on but also do well with structure and discipline. I am great in a crate and a yard, and completely house trained. I would make a great friend to the right home and my owners will only find me a new home if it's the perfect fit. They will even pay my first year of annual vaccinations and heartworm to help with costs if you want to make me your new best friend. If for some reason you feel I am not the right fit for your home, my owners will take me back so you don't have to worry about rehoming me. If you have room in your heart and home for a guy like me...I would love to meet you!

Pet's Name: Abby
Age: 9
Breed: American Shorthair

I'm pregnant with twins and I already have a 2 year old. I'm allergic to cats but have been managing the allergies by vacuuming daily but now I can't handle the extra work and I am not going to be able to have any time for her so I need to find her a good home.

Description: Abby is a sweet and independent cat. Doesn't need a lot of attention. She has been fine with our other cat (who I'm also trying to re-home) but I think her ideal would be to be an only pet. Protective of children, she has been our little watchdog with our son it's really cute.

Pet's Name: Siddalee

Age: 7 1/2

Breed: mixed

Spayed or Neutered?: yes

Description: Siddalee is a 7 year old pup I rescued from a shelter when she was 9 weeks old. It hurts me so bad to even think about giving her up but it is what I feel is best for her. I got her when I was 18 and had little to no idea what my future would be like. I now work 40+ hours a week and travel often, leaving her all alone. Sidda is very sweet and lovable, however she needs a home where she gets much more attention and preferably a home with a fenced in back yard so she can run around and excercise. She also needs someone who is assertive and dominating to control her as she is very much an alpha female. She will need to be in a one dog home as she has aggression towards animals, but NEVER people. I recently paid about $400 for a trainer and she made some improvements (or I should say I did by learning how to communicate with her) but with my busy schedule, and honestly, not being too fond of the  trainer,  we didn't complete our sessions. Again, I firmly believe that someone with enough time and ability to become the alpha will curb any bad habits in no time.  Please contact me if you are interested or have any more questions. This dog has been my best friend for 7 years but I want a better more active life for her!!

 Hello, my name is Ricky Lamberson and my family and I are in search of a loving, safe home for our dog Zoe.  Zoe is an 8 year old American Staffordshire Terrier (pure bred, blue nose).  She is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm/flea prevention.  She has been a wonderful dog and great companion.  However, she has recently been showing signs of dominance towards our infant son.  When our son was a newborn she was very calm and gentle around him, but over the last month or so she has displayed some aggressive behaviors that cause us to be concerned about the safety of our child.

     We are trying our best to find a home for Zoe that will give her the love and attention that she deserves.  If you can help us in any way could you please contact me at this email or at (850)264-2248.  Thank you in advance for your help during this difficult time.

Breed: Spaniel

Spayed or Neutered?: Yes

He is full of energy and needs a fenced yard, however he is a house dog and sleeps in my bedroom on a carpet at night. There has been no interaction with cats, but I think he would give chase. I have had him neutered and he has just completed heartworm treatment. He is up to date with all his shots. Andy seeks attention and affection and returns it. A good dog for an older person where he is the top dog. I have a dog rescue and currently am looking for homes for a few of them.

I'm looking for a new home with caring owner!

My name is Pearl and I'm blackish short-haired 5 year old
male Tabby feline; I am healthy, lovable, playful, and
neutered! Being house trained and well groomed, I can accommodate new owner's expectations. I'm reasonably
teachable in healthy environment. Well trained by present
owner but he is moving into deep North and employment that
cannot accommodate cat-care. Be my salvation!

Pet's Name: Keelo
Age: 6.5 years
Breed: Pit mix
I am a neutered male who is in need of a home ASAP. I am not comfortable where I live with two new babies in the house and have shown some slight aggression, despite professional training. I will eventually be surrendered if I don't find a home. 
I am great with adults and love to play and follow the commands I know. Regular walks would be a dream come true! I have received professional obedience training in the past, and I need someone to keep me lovingly disciplined in what I learned.
The perfect home for me consists of a single adult, couple, or a family with older children/teens that would appreciate my company and return my affection. I'm super friendly and sweet, and I just need attention and exercise and discipline and love!

Pet's Name: Ellie
Age: ~ 1 year
Breed: Unsure
Description: Ellie is as sweet as sweet can be. Unfortunately a family friend can no longer care for her like she deserves and we took her in with the intent of finding her a safe, loving home. Ellie is extremely shy. She gets nervous around loud noises and new people but with time, she warms up, and the rest is history. She's great with other cats as well as dogs. In fact, another cat around the house may just give her the confidence she needs to come into her own. Ellie needs a family that can understand her needs and be patient with her until she settles and becomes comfortable. Because of this, small children may not be the best fit but older kids who can allow her the space she'll need to readjust would be more than fine! This little fur ball truly does love everyone she meets, given they allow her the time to get to know them.
Spayed or Neutered?: No

Pet's Name: Buck (male)

Age: approx 1.5-2years old

Breed:St. Bernard/Shepherd Mix

Neutered: YES

Description: Buck is a 1.5-2 year old St. Bernard/Shepherd mix with a ton of energy. He's extremely smart and loves to play. Buck was recently rescued and due to an older dog in the house not taking a liking to him, he needs a new home. Buck loves walks, rope toys, and is great with kids and other dogs. He is a larger breed, but thinks he is a lap dog. He doesn't know his own size. He still has a lot of puppy in him and would do best in a fenced in yard as he loves to run. Buck would be a great addition to any home! He is currently up to date on all his shots, microchipped, neutered, and house broken. He does all his business outside and is learning basic commands. He can sit, paw (shake), and lay down. We are working on roll over. He is not a fan of the water, but is slowly working on that as well. If you would like to have more information on Buck or are interested in meeting him, please feel free to contact me! Thank you!

 Indy & Lilly

Indy (standing) is a neutered 4 year old male black mouth cur. He is a big dog weighing in around 120lbs. However, Indy thinks he is a lap dog and loves to try and sit in your lap if you are on the floor. He also has his own pillow that he carries around and lays with when given the chance.


Lilly (laying down) is a spayed 4 year old female hound/boxer mix. She has a long nose and a brindle coat weighing in around 75lbs. Lilly is the most affectionate dog you could ask for. She is very quiet and seeks only to have you pet her.


Both dogs are very sweet and do very well with kids. Although they are big they are both very loving and do great with people after about 5 minutes of getting to know you. They are both kennel trained and both kennels would come with them. They do not get on furniture, chew things, or have accidents in the house. They love each other and if at all possible would do well to find a new home together. They play well together and really spend most of their time with each other in the house and outside.


They deserve a loving home/family with some room to stretch their long legs and unfortunately we are no longer able to provide what they need. If interested in becoming Indy and Lilly’s forever family please email or call James at 904-322-6351.

Her name..... Missy,and she needs a home. Lets talk about her! Missy is a Anatolian shepherd,8 years old,soft,healthy,cute,strong and fun! Seriously soooo cute,so cute upon walking her anywhere everyday so many people stop to see her. She loves the water,any pool any size,even the kiddie pools,the beach and the lake. Car rides are great as well. 

She is great with people even the kids, not so much with other animals. Very protective of anyone who she gets close to as well, always a plus. So sad to say the owner is losing her house and Missy needs a home to live in. I am the care taker of her and she is an amazing dog! She does great in the house but prefers to be outside during day and inside at night but doesn't matter, she does need a fenced in backyard for she is a dog who needs to be leashed on walks or runs or she will take off....of course will come back. She is spayed. PLEASE help her find a wonderful alcohol and drug free home. 

Please contact me, at who is interested in having a loving dog. Bless her heart. 

Thanks..... A small re homing fee req.

Age: 8 months
Breed: chocolate lab/short haired pointer mix 

Spayed or Neutered: YES
All vaccinations and rabies shot good until Jan 2016 

Tucker is a great dog. He loves people and is very active. He is a still a pup so he has lots of energy and loves to go on long walks and play fetch for hours. He is good with our small dog and cat but wants to be the alpha in our household. I'm too passive of an owner for Tucker and he needs a dominant personality to love and train him and show him that he doesn't have to be in charge. He is very protective of our little one and would be great for a couple who is active or has older children as he can get very excited. He needs someone who has more time and attention to give to him. He loves table scraps and cuddles and sleeping in your bed :) he is potty trained, crate trained, and knows all basic obedience commands. He is a great dog and would be an even better dog to someone who can give him the authority he is looking for. We love him but can't seem to be the owner he is looking for. It isn't settling well with our other animals. Please give Tucker a chance to show you how great he is!

Pet's Name: Ruby

I found Ruby as stray and it’s been 3 weeks now and no-one has claimed her despite my efforts. She is about 1 year old, spayed and will be UTD on shots. She is super sweet, a little timid/anxious as I think someone has been mean to her previously. She gets on great with my two female lab/pit mixes. She is good around children, she loves them (even the 2 year old!). She is not at all aggressive as far as I can tell. She loves her food, but not food aggressive. She would do best in a home with another friendly dog, who is also not food aggressive as she tends to finish up all the leftovers!

She is fully house trained and well behaved, know basic commands. She likes to play with other dogs but she doesn’t bound around and jump up.  Like all young dogs, she does chew if she finds something lying around so lots of toys required.  She does not like the crate and gets quite distressed if you put her it, but so far she has been okay left out in my house. This sweet girl will lay next to you on the couch and be loved on all day. She deserves a chance

Pet's Name: Berry

Very energetic and loving young lady. When I, her third adopter from the humane society, I was in the middle of moving to a house and thought she would do well in the house and back yard but she is too energetic for me to have her inside. I would love to find her a home with a big back yard to run around in and with a person that loves to run and needs a partner. When she does come inside and calms down she is more than happy to lay beside me on the couch and lay her head on my lap. She does well with my schnauzer even though the two of them do get rough sometimes but it is all play. She deserves more than my little back yard and someone that is home more to play with her and train her.
