Senior Dog Buildings Update

Click for video.

Dogs and Cats Forever is proud to announce that the construction of our senior dog buildings and cottages is approaching completion!  These premises will serve our senior dogs in a modern and up-to-date design well into the future. This is a project that we undertook several years ago with the vision that our shelter would eventually need additional space to continue providing care and compassion to animals in need. To see it finally come to fruition is an exciting time for everyone at Dogs and Cats Forever as well as members of the community. Special thanks go to the residents of Jupiter Island for making these buildings possible so that we can continue providing shelter to our Forever Family!

Emergency GoFundMe for Baby Kitten

Please help! This kitten needs to get to an emergency Vet ASAP! She’s in very poor condition with a high fever, neurological issues, and has a large wound on her backside from a possible animal bite. She has been vetted and has started on antibiotics for five days now which is not helping. The wound needs to be cultured to determine what antibiotic will work best for her.

Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. was organized in 1988 for the purpose of building and maintaining a shelter for homeless dogs and cats on the Treasure Coast.

Our shelter is founded on the principle of trying to find good, adoptable and loving homes for the animals and help stop the killing of over 75,000 abandoned animals in southern Florida.

With the increase of Florida’s population so too has come an increase of unwanted animals. Any pet not adopted will have a safe and permanent home at our facility for the duration of its natural life.

No animal at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. will ever be sold for research, entertainment, or exploitation. We strive to end animal abuse and neglect. This charity is not connected with any other animal society. It is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt project totally dependent on donations and endowments. Officers and members are unpaid volunteers. All gifts are used locally and are greatly appreciated.
