Assistance Needed-(graphic)







Dogs & Cats Forever Inc. strives to end animal abuse and neglect. Our shelter is not connected to any other animal society. It’s a non-profit, 501, tax exempt project and is totally dependent on donations and endowments. Within the last 3 months we have had young pregnant dogs dumped/abandoned at our shelter that had required emergency c-sections. We were able to save a couple of puppies, but others have died and caused uterus infections in some of the mama dogs. This is not to mention other dogs/cats that have been dropped off with severe skin infections and other medical issues. “Mercy” who just came in yesterday with a dead puppy sticking out of her, is just one example of what our shelter is doing. Due to COVID 19 and lack of donations we are struggling with excessive vet cost. Mercy’s vet bill alone will be between $1700-$2100 (receipt can be provided). We are committed to be a “NO-KILL” shelter and do our best in caring for all the animals in the shelter. Without your continued support our shelter may not be able to help these animals with these extreme medical cost.

If possible, we are accepting donations through our website using PayPal, or you can go to the shelter, located at 4600 Selvitz Road, Fort Pierce, Fl. 34981 and/or call 772-489-5844 to make a cash and/or credit donation. No amount is too small. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Maui

Hello, I’m Maui like from the movie “Moana”. It’s funny they named me after the movie, because I love kids! I came from a family that loved me very much, but they could no longer take care of me. I’m a Corgi mixed with another unknown breed. I have short legs and a long thick body. I have a really calm personality, and I’m not a high maintenance dog. If your interested in meeting me, please call the shelter to make an appointment. Applications are also online. I can’t wait to meet my new family!

Inola

Female- Lab Mix- 3 Years Old

My name is Inola and I’m a cute spunky little girl. I am a high energy dog so I will require a fenced in yard where I can play. I would love to have an active family that I can get all my energy out with. I do show signs of aggression towards other dogs, so a home where I can be the only pet would be great. If you think I can be the dog for you or your family, please call the shelter and set up a meet and greet with me. I would love to meet you. Our applications are online if you’d like to submit one for me.

King

“King”- UPDATE: Look how much I’ve healed with the love from the shelter team. I love attention. I’m still not too sure about other dogs, but I’ve been through a lot being used as a bait dog… But I’m ready for a forever home. Please come visit me and hopefully I’ll be your best friend!!!

He’s an approx. 2 year old male Hound Mix (male)- a Good Samaritan saw King running up and down King’s Highway and brought him the our shelter. King was covered with scars consistent of him being used as a bait dog and possibly chained up. King is a lover, super sweet and walks well on a leash. With everything he’s gone through he still trust humans and desires their affection. We would request King be the only pet. His eyes say he’s ready for a home he deserves. If you’re interested in adopting King, please submit your application online, and we’ll call you to schedule an appointment to meet him.

Eli

My name is Eli.  I’m approximately 3 years old and a Curr Mix (male).  I was found out west of town (St. Lucie County).  I need to gain a little weight, but I’m a picky eater and not big on treats.  I’m very sweet and docile, and I walk calmly on a leash.  I’ll need some “house breaking” training, but I’m sure I’ll be a fast learner. If you’re interested in adopting me, please submit an application online and the shelter will contact you to make an appointment to meet me.  I’m looking forward to finding my forever home.

EMMA

Hi there, my name is Emma and I’m a Dalmatian mix, 7-8 years old. I’m a very good girl, but can be territorial with my food and other animals. I would be best as an only dog with older or no children. I love to run around so I need a fenced in yard. I’m very friendly and loyal. Ask to come meet me, and I’ll give you 101 reasons to take me home.

STARK

Hi there, my name is Stark and handsome is my game. I’m a typical “teenager” male German shepherd, only 1 ½ years old.  I’m in need of a dad with a firm, but loving hand to bring me home.  I will be his best buddy, and I’m willing to be taught to be the best dog that I can be. I need someone who is experienced with my breed and has no other pets. I would do best in a single parent home without children.  I need all your attention and don’t like to be left alone. I am smart, brave and loving in my own silly and aloof way. My friend, at the shelter who loves me, tells me I am an “incredible boy”!  I absolutely LOVE to play fetch with tennis balls catching them in the air, on the ground or in the pool! I do need a fenced yard so I can run and run. So, if you think we would be great buddies, please call the shelter and make an appointment to come meet me. Hope to see you soon!!!

HYACINTH

Black Lab Mix- Female- 3 Years old

Hyacinth is such a sweetheart. Just by looking at her you would never know the pain this dog went through. Hyacinth came to the shelter as a stray, very skinny and her skin was in bad shape. What caught the shelter’s attention was her teeth were shaved down. Hyacinth had scars all over her face and some on her body. She was being used as a bait dog. As bad as that sounds, she was still willing to give everyone at the shelter love as soon as she met them.

Hyacinth will make a great family dog. She is good with kids and adults. Due to her past life, living with other dogs will not be possible. She loves toys, such as her Giggle ball, and she absolutely loves to eat. Hyacinth will need adopters who will spend time with her, and show her what it means to be a house dog. If your interested in adopting or fostering Hyacinth contact the shelter. She deserves the chance to know what a home feels like.

Chester

Rhodesian Mix- Male-8 Months old

Chester can be shy at first but when he warms up to you, he’s all about getting the attention. Chester absolutely loves his doggy biscuits, and belly rubs. He is a big dog that thinks he’s a lap dog. Chester would do best as the only dog in an adult family household.

Roxie

Female/ Boxer Pit Mix/ 2 Years Old

My name is Roxie and i’m your high energy type of girl. Im looking for my forever family. I can be dog selective so a meet and greet will need to be set up. I like kids but older kids would be best for me because of all my energy. I love to go on walks but I am still working on not pulling on a leash. I will also require a fenced in yard where I can do lots of running and playing.

Rocky

Male/ Lab Mix/ 4 Years Old

My name is Rocky and I found myself at a high kill shelter for being a wallflower. Dogs And Cats Forever saved me from there and gave me a chance to fined a forever home. Im good with other dogs but a slow introduction is always recommended. I love to go on walks sometimes I can get a little to excited and start pulling but then I calm down. Stop by the shelter to meet me I would love to have you pet and play with me.

Odin

(Update: thanks to the Boenish family, Odin’s blood work costs have been graciously sponsored. Thank you!)

Meet Odin! Odin came to the shelter as an abused and underweight stray. He is a 3 year-old American Bulldog mix. Sadly, because of previous neglect, Odin is currently undergoing blood work to diagnose an immune system problem. Even with his sad past, Odin is a good and loving boy. Odin needs a forever home where he can know what a true loving family really is.

Luke

Meet Luke! Luke is a 7-year-old male English Bulldog who is a very vocal boy that is looking for lots of love and attention. He also loves his toys and going on walks. But, he’ll also lounge lovingly near you so you can pet him nonstop. Luke will require a female household only, Luke is dog selective. Let’s meet!

Jasper

Jasper had a rough start to life and found himself on the euthanasia list at another shelter. Not only had he never known a loving home due to the abusive situation that he came out of, he was confused and afraid when everything he had ever known was taken away. We took Jasper in & a local trainer stepped up to work with him. Jasper even made friends with another adoptable dog of ours. He is still learning his manners and working to prepare himself for the new life that awaits him – he just needs to find the family that he so deserves. Jasper would like to find a home that consists of adults or teenagers and he would love a fenced-in yard where he can play.

Blake

Blake is a 6 year old pit bull mix. He is currently residing in a foster home where he is thriving. Please ask about scheduling a time to meet him! Blake is in search of an adult home with a fenced-in yard where he can be the only pet.


Blake’s foster mom writes…

If you didn’t know this guys past, you would think that he was the perfect dog! He is so calm and loving in my shop outside of the shelter that was a crazy environment for him.

He sits, stays, places, waits for his food and has learned to walk perfectly on a leash. The boxer in him means he likes multiple short walks where he has time to take in all the smells! We take 3 walks a day and it helps him with his energy level tremendously. He loves to ride in the car with the wind on his face, smelling the world as we drive by!

At my shop, nothing I do bothers him. He will come to see what I’m working on and offer assistance…lol….but if I dont need his help, he lies happily on his bed or puts himself in his crate for a nap! He adores his nylabone that his friend Alexis got him and just loves to sit with me while he happily chews away!

Throughout the day we have an affirmation sessions where I tell him “You are beautiful! You are worth life! You are smart and you are calm and kind. You will find a loving peaceful home after you have healed mind, body, and spirit. You are a great friend!”

Please keep him in your prayers. To return to the shelter would set him back so far! I have faith that some kind person will find him!!!

Mimi

_DSC1348

I’m Mimi, a 10 year old Boxer/Beagle mix. Yeah, I’m a senior girl, but I like to be on the move! I’ve got energy and love to run around as if I’m a young pup. Having time to exercise is important to me, whether it is through several daily walks or a fenced-in yard. Swimming is my absolute favorite activity! I know basic commands such as sit and stay. I’m also housebroken. I do need a very special person and that is probably why I’ve been waiting for so long. It takes me awhile to get used to people, and most people aren’t willing to wait. I hope that one day, someone will really try for me. If that person volunteered to spend time with me regularly, it would give me the time that I need to open up to them prior to going home. I would do best as the only pet in the home. I have potential, and I deserve to spend my golden years with a family to call my own.

Sadie

I’m Sadie, a 10 year old lab/shepherd mix, let’s get to know each other. I’m an absolute doll once you get to know me. I am a goofy girl who will wiggle and wag at the sight of a leash; I LOVE walks! I’m not only beautiful, I’m smart too. I know my basic commands and will gladly give you my paw. I need a living situation that can be difficult to find. I would do best as the only pet in a home with one adult person. The reason is, once I find a person of my own, I can be very protective of that person. I promise to make up for it with endless love, loyalty and lots of kisses.

Dre

 

HANDSOME, SMART & ADOPTABLE…

Beautiful Dre could be your newest family member! This beautiful boy knows his basic commands and loves to play fetch! Dre dreams of having a fenced-in yard some day. He’s got a lot of pep in his step for an older guy but his energy isn’t overwhelming. Dre’s ideal home would be one where he can be with adults or older kids. Dre is good with cats and can be dog selective. Stop by the shelter to meet this sweet man!

Baba

I’m Baba, an 8 year old pit bull mix. I’ve called the shelter home since I was a puppy. I’m a really sweet, playful boy who loves to give kisses, but I will need a special home. I will have to be the only pet in an adult home, with a fenced-in yard to call my own. I need a responsible, experienced handler that can keep me away from other animals. I get anxious outside of my room, so I need someone to work with me to help me feel comfortable.

Ezra

I’m Ezra, a 3 year old shepherd mix. I was rescued from an awful situation, which causes me to be very untrusting and scared of people that I don’t know. I’m really hoping someone will come along and see the potential I have to be their best friend. I just need someone who is willing to be patient and get to know me. I need an experienced adult home, I am dog selective so if you have a dog already, we will have to meet first. I will need a fenced in yard.

Diesel

This happy guy is named Diesel. Diesel is a 9 year old Lab/American Bulldog mix. He loves to play and has a great disposition. Diesel needs lots of exercise so if you have a big fenced-in yard or love to go on walks Diesel may be the dog for you.

I’m Jeffrey, a 5 year old curr mix! I came to the shelter as a stray, I was found wandering in the rain. I’m a quiet & calm boy, but I am nervous so I need someone who understands that. I am looking for a quiet adult home, as the only pet, and will need a fenced-in yard. I get nervous with a lot of people around, but I promise to be a loyal companion to my future adopter.

Hey there, I’m Browny, a 6 year old hound mix! I can be a little shy at first. I’m the most handsome boy, and I love to carry my toys around with me. I need an experienced adult home with no other pets; I want you all to myself! I’ll also need a fenced-in yard to run around and be a goof ball in. Come in to meet me, I’ll sit and give my paw to you.
