EARS is a No-Kill, No-Cage, not-for-profit animal rescue and care-for-life facility. For the past 3 years, EARS continues to grow and help more dogs and cats find their “forever homes”.
We are not funded by the state or government, we survive solely on the generous people from our community. Our re-sale (thift) store enables us to generate some of the much needed funds to care for our animals. Local businesses and individuals generously donate much needed supplies and food.
Our cats are in a spacious area that includes an outdoor patio for them to enjoy. They are well socialized. Our 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 are retrieving dogs from as far away as Miami-Dade, Hillsborough, Broward and Collier County shelters. The more dogs we are able to rescue the more lives we save from being euthanized. The last 3 months of 2013 we were able to rescue and find “forever homes” for over 60 dogs from these shelters.
EARS is a volunteer-based organization with only 2 full-time paid employees. 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.
