Pet Rescue, Inc. Joins Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet

Pet Rescue, Inc. Joins Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet

October 13, 2009. Miami, FL - The Humane Society of Greater Miami Adopt-A-Pet has announced that Pet Rescue, Inc., located at 3440 NW 191 Street in Miami Gardens, is now part of the Humane Society of Greater Miami. Together with Pet Rescue, the Humane Society of Greater Miami will become even a stronger leader in the animal welfare community than it is today.

Pet Rescue, Inc. was founded in 1982 by tennis legend Gardnar Mulloy who mortgaged his own home to pay for the approximately four acre property where the shelter is located. Pet Rescue, Inc. has been devoted to saving the lives of homeless cats and dogs, consistent with Humane Society of Greater Miami’s philosophy of guaranteeing a second chance to every healthy, adoptable animal in its care, free from the threat of euthanasia. Two Pet Rescue directors, Richard M. Gomez and Katherine Wasconis, have joined the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s board of directors in addition to Gardnar Mulloy who has joined the board of trustees.

The Humane Society of Greater Miami, founded in 1936, currently operates a state-of-the-art facility in North Miami Beach which offers high quality adoptions, low-cost and free spay/neuter clinic services, grooming and a pet boutique as well as a low cost spay/neuter clinic in Cutler Bay. Specific plans for the property have not yet been decided however all animals currently residing at Pet Rescue will progressively be moved to the Humane Society of Greater Miami’s main shelter where their new state-of-the-art Audrey Love Intake and Quarantine Pavilion will help provide the extra space needed to make the transition possible.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better organization for a merger,” said Lisa DePriest , Pet Rescue Treasurer. “Our organizations compliment each other so it is a win-win situation, especially for the animals. That’s what it’s really about.”

“Combining the experience, talent and reputation of Pet Rescue with the Humane Society of Greater Miami will allow us to continue to serve as the lead voice for the animals in Miami-Dade County,” said Rob Hudson, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Humane Society of Greater Miami. “With the help, staff and resources of Pet Rescue we are confident we will be able to accomplish even more of our goals and enhance the services we provide to the entire Miami-Dade County community.” Last year alone, the Humane Society of Greater Miami provided close to 3,000 free and 9,000 low-cost spay/neuter surgeries. Adoptions were also at an all time high – finding more than 1,100 loving homes for homeless pets of Miami-Dade County.
