Gilly

Gilly (tan, right) is a 6 year old female chihuahua. She came from a 200+ dog hoarding situation, so she never got to interact with people very much. She needs someone to take the time to let her warm up to them, and show her that humans can be great. She does great with other dogs but would like a home that has no children.

 

Ginger


Ginger is a 4 year old female terrier mix. She came from a 200+ dog hoarding situation, so she never had much of a chance to socialize with humans. For that reason, she is waiting for someone who is patient with shy dogs like herself and will take the time to show her how loving people can be. She does great with other dogs and would do best in an adult-only home.

Yin

YinYin is the other half of Yang whom has already been adopted. Yin is a six year old female American Bulldog and Hound Mix. She would do well in an adult home with no other pets. Yin likes to spend her free time chasing lizards. If you are looking for a new best friend, stop by the shelter and say hello, she would love to meet you!

Mya

 

user_photo-55297b71018a3

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.

Sadie

Sadie

Sadie is a six and a half year old female Shepherd mix. She is very affectionate with the people she knows. She doesn’t tolerate cats or other dogs so you would need a pet free home without children in order to adopt Sadie. She promises to be a loving, loyal companion to anyone who can give her the loving home that she deserves!

Yoo Hoo

TDP_3063yoo hooYoo Hoo is a handsome FIV-positive boy who was found living on his own. He is very playful and gets along with other cats. He would be happiest in an active family with someone to play with. Because FIV is contagious to cats in certain circumstances, he must be an only cat or with other FIV positive cats. Yoo Hoo is available for permanent foster or adoption.
Great News!  Yoo Hoo’s adoption fee has been paid by a Guardian Angelimage

Hawthorne

TDP_3056o9c0414-copy-1-913x288Great 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. He has no special medical needs, and will live a normal lifespan. He should be an only cat or live in a home with other FIV+ cats, as FIV is contagious to other cats in certain circumstances. FIV IS A CATS-ONLY VIRUS AND CANNOT AFFECT PEOPLE OR DOGS.

Hawthorne has lots of love to give and he wants to give it all to you!

Bojangles

bojanglesBojangles

Bojangles was trapped accidentally by shelter staff who were trying to capture another cat which had run away from her home. Bojangles had scars from many fights with other unneutered male cats and, sadly, tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Now that he has been neutered and has been at the shelter for awhile, he is looking-and feeling-much better, and staff and volunteers love his sweet personality. Bojangles never had a real home, but we are sure he would love a chance to be part of a loving family. Because he is FIV+ he must be an only cat or with other cats who are FIV+ also.

Great News! Bojangles’ adoption fee has been paid by a Guardian Angel

A Job Well Done!

Liz_SushiBeing a non-profit no kill animal shelter is no easy task. Ask any of the number of volunteers who assist Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. on a regular basis. Money is always tight, help is sometimes short. Every donation whether its a can of food or as simple as a dollar bill is always accepted with grace and humility on behalf of the dogs and cats entrusted to the care of the shelter.

One such volunteer in 2013 stands out. Liz Levanti, a sixteen year old sophomore at Lincoln Park Academy in Ft. Pierce started a donation drive for the animals at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. As part of her curriculum in the International Baccalaureate program offered through the school, Liz volunteered at Dogs and Cats Forever throughout the summer and fall of 2013. She took pictures of dogs and cats, started a Facebook page to keep people updated on the status of the fund drive and also displayed pictures in her mothers salon.

Liz raised more then $3500 in cash and donated goods to assist the animals at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc.

It’s not everyday a person walks through the front door and donates such a significant amount of money and items. Its not every day a sixteen year old high school sophomore does it when her peers are spending the summers and weekends at the movies and beach.

Today Dogs and Cats Forever recognizes Liz for her fantastic achievements with a pizza lunch. Oh did I mention Liz is spending a portion of her spring break volunteering at the shelter? She is.

lizparty3

Liz, on behalf of all the animals at Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. we thank you for your hard work and selfless dedication to this organization. The animals and staff are very proud of you and know you will continue to succeed and go far in life with the attitude you have.

The animals and staff of Dogs and Cats Forever, Inc. thanks all the volunteers and community who donate to the organization whether its time, money, goods and services.

D&C_Dinner1Chef 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!
