The Pittie Party of Central Florida saves dogs on the euthanasia list in county shelters. Many healthy dogs are euthanized due to overcrowding at shelters, so supporting a company like this is a great way to reduce the strain on shelters.
Another foster-based organization, Poodle and Pooch rescue save dogs who are often overlooked at shelters including elderly dogs, neglected dogs, and dogs with medical needs. The dogs here tend to be on the smaller and older side, making them a great addition to laid-back homes.
Second Chance Animal Rescue & Sanctuary uses foster homes to care for dogs and cats. The sanctuary part of their name refers to the owner’s own pack of animals who live at the sanctuary.
