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.
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.
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 all to himself 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 a solo pup with adults or older kids. Stop by the shelter to meet this sweet man!
Pit Bull, Male, 9 years
Are you single and ready to mingle? Active and love to have fun? Well, Jax is your man! This handsome boy bonds with one person and sticks to them, so he is in search of a home where he can have just one person all to himself. Jax is a 9 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix with tons of love to give. He is extremely smart, energetic and would love to have an active person who can give him stimulation and a job to do.
Cash is a 7 year old boy who spent the first couple years of his life in a cage at the hands of a hoarder. He is sweet and truly loves attention. He needs a quiet adult home.
Great News! My adoption fee has been paid by My Guardian Angel!
I’m Slugger – Handsome, charming and the goofiest of all the goof balls. I truly love to play and need to be on the move to be healthy, but my genetics left me with a bad back at a young age.
So what does this mean for me? I need a structured exercise routine and a calm home. I would do well with quiet older kids and senior/calmer dogs that will be my companions but not get me too excited, so I don’t hurt myself! I would love to go on walks with my family and indulge in restricted play in a fenced-in yard of my own. If you think you can give me the forever home that I’ve been dreaming of, consider adding me to your pack.
Male, Boxer mix, 3 years
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.
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.
I’m Princess, a sweet 12 year old shepherd/rottweiler mix. I lost my home when my owner’s house was foreclosed on, and they could no longer care for me. I’ve been waiting here at the shelter for my forever family for several years. I need a home with adults or older children and without cats. I will need to meet your dog first if you have one. I’m shy and any potential adopters should know that I will require a little patience, but it will be very rewarding for both of us if you give me a chance.
Hey, I’m Rex, a 4 year old german shepherd. I can be a little people selective. But those who have gotten to know me call me a sweet guy. I have some medical issues that make it hard for me to be adopted, the staff can tell you more about that. I need an experienced handler in an adult home as the only pet. I promise to be loyal to my owner.
Desi is an 8 year old handsome boy who needs a home with TLC. He is good with people and would do best in an adult home with no other cats.
Good News! Desi’s adoption fee has been paid by a guardian angel!
Yin is a 7 year old Lab/American Bulldog mix who has called the shelter her home for many years, but she is hopeful that some day her special person will find her. She would like to be someone’s one and only baby, so she is in search of a home without other pets. Yin is very playful and desires a fenced-in yard to call her own. She prefers men over women. This beautiful girl truly has the potential to be an incredible companion.
Mya was found as a stray in the summer of 2014, and brought to Dogs & Cats Forever No-Kill Shelter in Fort Pierce, FL. She had mange and was put on several medications by a veterinarian, but sadly, she had an allergic reaction to her medications,and developed an autoimmune response to her meds. She has been to specialists in Stuart, West Palm Beach, and Gainesville, at the University of Florida. She is slowly getting better but has run up more than $5,000.00 in vet bills and medication costs. Her vets say that it could take more than a year for her to recover fully. Mya is only a year old and has a wonderful personality despite being in and out of clinics and given medicine almost nonstop.
Mya needs veterinary care for many months to come, and while Dogs & Cats Forever is currently responsible for her care, we are a private animal shelter which receives no financial assistance from local government, and we need help to pay her bills. Please help Mya get better so she can one day find a forever home.

Great news! Hawthorne’s adoption fee has been prepaid by a Guardian Angel
Hawthorne is a young cat who has tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (also called FIV or feline AIDS). He was rescued after being dumped at a local park. He is a sweet and loving boy who was obviously a house pet as a kitten, but as so often happens, was no longer wanted after he grew into a cat. Hawthorne would be perfect for a family of any age. What does owning a FIV+ cat entail? Click here to learn more.
Hawthorne has lots of love to give and he wants to give it all to you!

Chef Jacques Schlock le Bloch, France’s leading wine connoisseur, is touting his own varietals as well as the opening his new St. Lucie restaurant, Escargot Mais Oui! Eatery. But, does his sommelier, Candy Coq Au Vin, have something to hide, or is she just there to pop his cork? Petula Pignoli, famous Italian songstress, is also present…but what exactly are she and local party planner, Tiffany Tira-Misu, cooking up? There are shenanigans galore, and it’s up to the summoned detective and the guests to figure out who wants to stomp out the competition…permanently!

When she isn’t busy showing off, Tallulah loves endless affection from her human. Her adoption fee has already been paid by her guardian angel, and she is also eligible for permanent foster.
