A volunteer-run non-profit rescue
Phoenix Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer grass-roots rescue group founded in 2003 in Gainesville, FL. We are dedicated to improving the lives of pets in North Central Florida through collaborations with national rescue groups, local rescue groups, pet owners, and the county animal shelters. We adopt out our rescued dogs every Saturday from 11AM-5PM at Petsmart in Butler Plaza on Archer Road in Gainesville, thanks to Petsmart Charities, and our parterning veterinary clinic, West End Animal Hospital. Phoenix Animal Rescue is proud to launch our PTSD Service Dog Training and Placement Program to provide specially trained service dogs to combat veterans experiencing PTSD.
