Purebreed Rescue of South Florida

NOTE: We do NOT have a shelter location or facility where we keep our adoptable animals.  Instead, they are spread around the South Florida area in foster homes.  We will contact you to make an appointment if we feel your application is good match for the dog in which you are interested.  Please understand we are volunteers with jobs and families and it can take time to get in touch.
