We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation which depends upon the community, businesses and individuals for support.
We have been in existence since 1955.
Volunteers, a board of directors and 28 employees have accepted the challenge of caring for the nearly 10,000 animals we receive each year from the animal control agencies and residents of our county.
We have contractual agreements with the three county municipalities: Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce and unincorporated St. Lucie County.
We advocate responsible companion animal care and spaying and neutering.
Education is an integral part of our Mission Statement.
40% of the animals we receive are either adopted or returned to their human family. Sadly, the remainder are humanely euthanized, as there is neither enough space nor money to care for all the animals we receive.
