Rufus is a sweet but shy dog. He follows me everywhere. He loves to take walks and will sit for his leash to be put on. He heels well and will follow your steps fast or slow. He even can sit and wait before crossing a street. Rufus loves to eat and takes treats gently. He is smart and is doing well with his house training. He likes other dogs and would do well with another 4 legged buddy. He does well with women and kids with a slow introduction and is learning that men are not all bad. Rufus will make a great new addition to a person/family willing to show him patience and kindness.
We start all of our adoptions with a one week sleepover, so you know everything there is to know before finalizing the adoption.
Adoption Fees for puppies under 6 months old: $225
Adoption Fees for dogs/puppies 6 months old or older: $150
This includes vetting, UTD Vaccinations and spay or neuter
We ask that you fill out an adoption application before you meet our animals. You can download it here: http://www.floridaurgentrescue.com/adopt

Florida Urgent Rescue Inc
Our mission is to dramatically improve the lives of shelter and rescue animals, to assist in urgent rescue situations and to implement resources to help in the aid of these animals. We rescue from death row at high kill shelters and help them have happy lives in their furever homes.
Shelter Driving Directions
Please note: We are not a shelter. We do not have a kennel or facility that you can visit and see all the Animals. Each Animal is fostered in an individual home. So, you cannot come visit our animals until you have gone through the application and brief phone interview process and then we will schedule a meet and greet with the animal and their foster parents. Then the next step would be a 1 week sleepover, so before finalizing we can all make sure it's a perfect fit. We are all volunteers and do this in our spare time, we do not have set "hours" and we answer all calls and emails as quickly as we can. Thank you so much for your interest in our FUR Babies!
We rescue animals in Northeast Florida, including Putnam County, Bradford County, Clay County, St. Johns County and Duval County.
We require a written application, references and a home check prior to adoption. If you're interested in a foster-to-adopt, we are very flexible.
