EARS is a No-Kill, No-Cage, not-for-profit animal rescue and care-for-life facility.
We are not funded by the state or government, we survive solely on the generous people from our community. Local businesses and individuals generously donate much needed supplies and food.
Our thrift store at 191 W. Cowles in Englewood enables us to generate some of the much needed funds to care for our animals.
Our cats are in a spacious area that includes an outdoor patio for them to enjoy. They are well socialized. Volunteers and members of the community spend quality time with them.
Our dogs are kept in foster homes so that they may receive all the love, care and training they need. Each foster parent learns the wants and needs of each individual dog so that they may be placed in the perfect home.
We rescue dogs from the Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, Manatee, Broward and Collier County open admission shelters. Due to the high number of animals brought to these shelters they are forced to euthanize many of the animals brought to them. The more dogs we are able to rescue the more lives we save from being euthanized. In 2014 we have saved over 100 from these shelters and many more surrended directly to EARS or brought in as strays.
EARS is a volunteer-based organization with a small unpaid Board of Directors. We work directly with other small, non-profit groups such as: Venice Cat Coalition, St. Francis and Charlotte Cat Coalition to reduce the number of stray cats in our area.
Our Pet Food Pantry offers those in the community pet food to help feed their pets.
