Save A Pet Florida, Inc. was originally founded as “Save Precious Lives, Inc.” by Gertrude Maxwell in 1978. The name was changed to Save A Pet Florida, Inc. on January 19, 1988.
Save A Pet Florida, Inc. is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization whose purpose is the preservation of life for all animals by virtue of a “no kill” policy. Save A Pet strives to promote awareness and support of the humane treatment of animals and the benefits of sterilization.
Every day our volunteers donate their time to rescue homeless animals from a parking lot, a car engine, an abandoned building, etc. We receive phone calls from people who have found an injured cat where they work or live and don't know what to do. We care about these cats and don't want to see them suffer. We will help as best we can but please understand that we are an all-volunteer organization and simply don't have the resources to handle the load. Therefore we can loan you a humane trap, provide instructions for use and connect you with a Vet that can assist. If our finances allow, we can help with a payment to the Vet. With the help of the community at large, more injured stray cats can be saved and won't have to suffer and die needlessly. Let's all do our part to help these kitties. Pictured is Stubbles who was missing part of his rear leg when we found him.
Make a difference by saving just one life!
We receive daily emails from high kill facilities about sick and injured dogs that need rescue to prevent euthanasia. Nearly every dog in our foster program is recovering from an accident or illness. Pictured is Madison whose front paw was severely injured from getting caught in a trap.
