URGENT UPDATE as of 6.8.14 MisFit ResQ Inc unfortunately CANNOT take any more animals due to lack of funding and over capacity. Any animals we do take will be severe medical needs and ONLY out of high kill facilities. We need all the financial help we can get.
Our recent medical needs include an amputee 6/24/14, a severe demodex puppy on 7/3/14 , and on 7/4/14 a mom with puppies and 7/8/14 comes another amputee. Please help with financial needs or networking their albums. xoxox
Sponsorship is based on the size of the animal and can be done in monthly automatic deductions. Please click the DONATE tab for more information and a weight chart.
We are sorry to have to come to this point, but these animals deserve a home and they deserve to have their needs met. Many have been here for more than three years.
MISSION STATEMENT: MisFit ResQ, is a non profit-501c3 animal rescue that focuses primarily on the animals that would not have a chance, many of which are highly adoptable dogs or cats, with emotional issues, abandonment, or medical setbacks that just need working out. We focus on the “underdogs”, the ones with broken bones, behavioral blocks, or mommies with puppies; typically the ones closest to euthanasia. The animals brought into MisFit ResQ’s program may have been found, abandoned, or surrendered to a high kill shelter, where their chances of adoption are less than average, or off the street. It is our focus to maintain good health and good emotional well being, while developing them into wonderful loving adoptable companions.
OUR GOAL: MisFit ResQ is a non profit 501c3 animal rescue, rehabilitation and relocation program dedicated to finding the perfect fit. To place animals with the cortrect owners so they never need to be placed in a dangerous posibiity again. We are not like most rescues. We help alot of dogs (as well as kitties) that many rescue pass up due to medical expenses. Our goal is to make a difference to those with special needs, and our primary purpose is “rescue”, then rehabilitate and finally relocate/rehome.
FOSTER TO ADOPT: This is a program we offer that many rescues don’t. We feel that in order to have the “perfect fit”, that fit needs to be based on a trial run. We offer 1-4 week times to allow your potential adoption to mke its “fit” We ask that you give it no less than one week, as that is the time it usually takes for a dog (cats can be longer) to adjust to their new surroundings. Out dog are currently crate trained, and we ask that during the trial, the potential adopter continue to keep the training, if for some reason things dont work out, then their training has not been swayed. We can provide a temporary kennel if needed, and will retrieve any articles borrowed during the TRIAL time. Leashes, collars or harnesses are included for trial, and can be purchased at the time of adoption or returned.
WHERE WE ARE: The rescue facility, where we house the adoptable and ready-to-go dogs and cats, is located at 524 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd, aka 12th street, in West Palm Beach, FL 33401. The building is the Orange square building on SW corner (only building on block). Do not try to GPS this address it will get you lost. Please call if coming so I can properly guide you.
Please bear with us, as the animals are not always updated on PetFinder as quickly as we may like. Please feel free to ask about others that may be available that are not listed.
HOURS: Due to the amount of care needed for these animals, we have set “Open House” hours at the facility where anyone can come see the aniamsl for adoption on Saturdays ONLY from 2:00 to 4:00. Sundays we are usually at off site events, usually in Delray at Petsmart on Linton, and not all Sundays. All other times are by appointment only and there are available time slots due to the rotations of the dogs schedules and how our facility is set up. Any appointment can be made between 11:00am and 2pm; 5pm and 8. We have a lighted facility outside so evening are not bad. Other options are available for a specific pet/pets at a local dog park or at your own home. WE CAN ALSO COME TO YOU!
EDUCATION: Misfit ResQ Inc. will also be doing education seminars and workshops on the importance of spay/neuter, and vaccinations. We also offer information regarding treatment of skin problems, homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, and other assorted “outside the box” treatments for the best possible overall care of your pet. We ARE NOT vets, but given the experience I have learned over 15 years and the experience of my colleagues, we have managed to find some amazing remedies.
COMMUNITY SERVICE: We are available for school credits or other community service hours, as we are a non profit 501(c)3 recognized charity. Community service hours would be on the weekends to help during adoption events. Sundays from 12:30-3:30 or by prior arrangements.
