Mission Pawssible: Claws and paws for a good cause


Animal shelters and rescues across Northwest Florida are filled to capacity and they need your help to clear the kennels.

Non-profit rescue organization, SouthBARK, has dozens of animals ready to be adopted. Contrary to what you might think, the group doesn't discriminate.

President Jenny Bilbrey said they find homes for all types of animals, like kittens, Grover, Toots and Muppet.

"These are 12-week old kittens and their adoption fee is $75," said Jenny. "That includes their spay or neuter, up to date on vaccinations and their microchip."

All three kittens are ready to be adopted Friday.

If you're more of a dog lover, SouthBARK doesn't disappoint. Hutch, the Italian greyhound mix, is one of their newest rescues, and is looking for a loving family.

"Hutch was rescued yesterday from the Santa Rosa County [Animal] Shelter," said Jenny. "He is ready to go, he is already fully vetted and he's a sweet little fellow."

For those with the patience for puppies, SouthBARK has plenty.

"Will and Grace come from a littler of eight, they appear to be a beagle or spaniel mix," said jenny.

Will, Grace and the rest of the litter are five weeks old and will be ready to be adopted out in about three weeks.

Juliet, from another litter, is also up for grabs.

"Juliet, we believe is a pit mix puppy, possibly with a shar-pei," said Jenny. "She should be a pretty big girl, around 50 pounds fully grown."

The adoption fee for puppies is $250, dogs six months and older are $200.

"That covers their spay or neuter, being up to date on vaccinations, they've been de-wormed and they're also microchipped," said Jenny.
