Pet Rescue

A New Beginning Rescue

A New Beginning Pet Care & Rescue, Inc. was started July 2001 and is a registered 501c charity. The organization rescues and rehomes primarily dogs and cats, but also will help rabbits and some small animals as well. A New Beginning is not a shelter but instead finds foster homes until permanent homes can be established. Pet adoptions take place on the weekends at Petsmart in Altamonte Springs and in Orlando. They typically adopt between 700 and 1000 homeless pets a year. Their mission is to rescue and rehab homeless pets and place them with new loving families. With the help of local veterinarians A New Beginning spays or neuters all dogs, cats and rabbits prior to adoption. It is a very important part of the charity’s mission to encourage and enforce spay/neuter due to the huge pet overpopulation crisis.

In October 2010 A New Beginning was asked to take in 287 Labrador/Labrador mixes that had been seized by Polk County, Florida. This overwhelming task was made easier by facilities such as Pet Care Center of Apopka who took in and treated seven dogs at a time, opening up more space as some were adopted. It is a credit to this charity that over 100 have already found permanent loving homes. Please visit their website or ask to see the dogs at The Pet Care Center of Apopka.

Southeastern Guide Dogs

Established in 1982, Southeastern Guide Dogs’ mission is to create and nurture a partnership between a visually impaired individual and a guide dog, facilitating life’s journey with mobility, independence and dignity. Through their programs Paws for Independence™, Paws for Patriots™, and Gifted Canines™ they have more than 700 active guide dog teams across the nation and continue to add more than 70 teams annually, all at no charge to the guide dog recipient, thanks to the generous support of donors and volunteers. Included in that legion of volunteers and sponsors is a select group of Veterinarian Partners throughout the southeast that make a huge difference by donating services and products to help keep Southeastern’s dogs and puppies healthy.

We are very happy to help another chosen group with their veterinary services.
"Buddies Thru Bullies" is a very reputable rescue group devoted to helping Bulldogs throughout Florida.
