Pandora is a 1.5 year old panda German Shepherd who was originally found as a stray and ended up at Manatee County Animal Services, prior to coming in to our rescue.
She is currently located in a foster home in Ormond By The Sea and although she is the only dog in that home, she has been around multiple other dogs. She will do best in a home with another medium or large dog that is friendly and playful as she has a lot of energy to burn. Pandora is a super sweet girl but has not had much socialization so she gets a little nervous and unsure when she meets new people or is put in new situations but 5 minutes later, she is your best friend and rolls on her back for belly rubs. We are looking for a family who has some experience with German Shepherd dogs, one that will have the time to take her places and introduce her to new surroundings (she rides great in the car, perfect passenger) and one that will work with her on socialization and building up her confidence.

Her adoption fee is $250.



Drego is a 2 year old sable male who was originally purchased in Europe by a law enforcement dog training company in hopes that he would become a drug detection dog, however, shortly after his arrival in the US, they noticed that the tip of his tail was injured so he underwent a tail docking surgery. A few weeks later, he had to have another surgery to remove another piece of his tail due to incorrect healing so and because of the healing time that he needed, he was considered a wash out and was no longer considered a good candidate for a working dog.
He is a very high drive and high strong dog who will do best as a single dog and only with a person with some type of K9 training experience. He is not available to the average household.
Due to Drego's intensive personality, we recommend a home with no small children (although he is super friendly). He is not a good candidate for a service dog but will do excellent in agility glasses, barn hunting classes or daily jogging with his person. He is crate trained, housebroken  and he loves to play ball. He has been around multiple dogs at the facility, but should be place as the only dog.
Drego's adoption fee is $250.


Cowboy is a 1 year old black and tan male who was saved from Chipley shelter in North Florida. He is currently in a temporary foster home in Jacksonville, FL. Cowboy is a typical hyper and mouthy puppy, trapped in an adult dog's body. He is on a larger side, 75 lbs and super strong so he will require a physically strong person to handle him as he has no manners and needs to be trained to walk nicely on leash. A perfect home for Cowboy would be one with teenagers and other medium or large dogs with playful personalities. He has not been cat tested. His adoption fee is $250.



Nola is a 5 month old light colored female who was originally found as a stray and ended up in a North Florida shelter. She is currently in a foster home in Port Orange and pending vetting.
Nola has a sweet and loving personality, she loved to cuddle and will roll on her back for belly rubs. For a young pup, she is calm and very well behaved and will make a wonderful addition to any family. An ideal home for Nola would be one with a well balanced dog, any size. One that will respect her space as she does to others.
At this point, Nola is scheduled to complete her vetting and get spayed. We are also looking into her sneezing (which she only does outside), so she can possibly be allergic to blooming oak trees. (allergies have not been confirmed by the vet, it is just a guess).

Her adoption fee Is $300.


Moon is a 12 year old senior who was saved from Nassau County Animal Services in Fernandina Beach, FL. When we decided to bring him to our rescue, we were expecting a hospice type dog that did not have much longer to live and just needed a place to be comfortable during his golden years. Despite his heartworm positive status, severe mange upon arrival and signs of neglect, Moon has proved us all wrong and showed us that he is nowhere near ready to leave this earth. This boy is full of spunk, goofy and playful. He is located in a foster home in Ormond Beach, which he shares with multiple dogs and cats. He is super easy to take care of, walks well on leash, enjoys multiple nap times a day and you don't even know he's there. We are treating him for his non contagious mange now and started on a slow kill heartworm treatment.
Due to the neglect in his past, we will be very specific as far as who can adopt Moon, and we will be looking for a family who can financially provide for him as he needs to be kept on a good quality food, glucosamine and fish oil to improve his overall look, which may take a few months. Our rescue will provide Heartgard for Moon for the rest of his life.
Moon's adoption fee is $200.
