Animal Services currently works with more than 80 rescue groups across the state that aid in the recovery and adoption of homeless animals, and nearly two dozen local rescue groups will attend the event, including Pet Rescue by Judy, Husky Haven of Florida, Florida Boxer Rescue, and Scottish Terrier Rescue of Florida, among many others.


Dozens of available animals will be onsite, in the care of the shelter’s rescue groups. This includes puppies, adult dogs, specific breeds and mixed breeds. With a wide variety of options, there will be a pet for each interested adopter available!

Together, OCAS and the rescue groups took in 1,528 pets in the past fiscal year of 2022.


These amazing rescue groups often take in pets with moderate to severe medical and behavior issues, that otherwise would be overlooked or not suitable for adoption. without their help there are so many deserving animals that would otherwise not have an opportunity to thrive and to find happiness.
