Ezra

Ezra is an almost 2 year old shepherd mix. Her rescue situation causes her to be untrusting and scared of new people. She needs an experienced, adult-only home that will take the time to get to know her to see that she is a great dog. She is a very active and will require a fenced-in yard. She is dog selective and her opinion on cats is unknown.

Coco

Coco is an 8 year old male lab. Coco had a loving family but they were forced to give him up during rough times. He is nervous being surrounded by other dogs in the shelter so he would prefer to be the only dog in his home. He does like cats though, and will need a fenced-in yard. Coco is super sweet and will love you forever.

Dahlia

 

Dahlia is a gorgeous 4 year old pit bull who was flown in from Puerto Rico following hurricane Irma! She is very strong but sweet. Dahlia will require a fenced-in yard. She’s very active and playful. She is striking with her black and white markings and will make a great family dog. 

 

Tater


Did you know we have a big teddy bear up for adoption? His name is Tater, he’s a senior chow chow boy. He was adopted from us 11 years ago, but unfortunately his adopter became ill and had to bring him back. He needs an experienced owner that can dedicate their time to him only – he would like to be the only pet in an adult home. He’s now waiting for a patient & understanding person to come along and care for him in his golden years.

Leah

Leah is a 3 year old lab/blue heeler mix. She is a little shy at first but is a really sweet girl. She loves to swim. Leah likes other dogs and will need an adult home. She is pretty good at jumping fences so she will need someone who has time to walk her and/or supervise her in a yard. Her brother Luke is also available for adoption.

Coco & Dobie


Coco (tan female) & Dobie (black/brown male) are 13 year old chihuahua mixes. Coco is calm and gentle, while Dobie still has a bit of spunk. They are a bonded pair and must go to a home together; they are available for adoption or foster. They like other small dogs, but don’t like big dogs. They are looking for a quiet, adult home.

Sammi

Sammi is a 4 year old female chihuahua. She came from a 200+ dog hoarding situation, so she had very little human contact before coming to the shelter. She would love a patient adult-only home, maybe even with a dog brother/sister. She just needs time and understanding so she can learn that humans are good.

Mimi

Mimi is an eight year old female Boxer/Beagle Mix. She is very high energy and loves to run around. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus but lots of walks and exercise on a leash could also suffice. Mimi knows basic commands such as sit and stay. She is also house broken. She gets along with other dogs and kids, but likes to bark and chase cats.  Mimi likes to swim and play in the pool.

One hundred and seventy-two guests dined on appetizers from sponsors such as Cuisine256, OooLaLa Catering, Tutto Fresco, and many more. Beverages were provided by Southern Eagle Distributors. Top notch entertainment consisted of “All Around Entertainment for You” with Melissa & Rich. The flowers donated by St. Lucie Florist graced the tables that were donated by Eventmakers. Our volunteer bartenders were Chris Dobek and Jimmy Tresco, our wait staff Jackie Massaro, and Melissa Reese. Our Photographer & Artist, Karla Smith drove up from Boca Raton to capture the event. Additional photography was provided by Marisol Guntkowski.

Every guest went home with a “Doggie Bag” provided by PrimeK9Cuisine of Miami and BoneAppetit out of Casselberry, Florida.

The committee chairs, Kathy DiChiara, Fran Fernandes, Angela Gardella, Mich Moeding, and Amy Vanderbreggen’s teamwork was evident at this function. Everything went off with out a hitch. Let’s not forget the volunteers Porcha Beneditti, MaryLou Flynn, Judy Marchionni, Hilda Rosa and Jan Zeek. None of their husbands got off easy either, they were put to work behind the scenes.

All and all the hard work paid off because it was a tremendous success!
