Tri-County Animal Rescue
Tri-County Animal Rescue in Boca Raton is a no-kill, nonprofit animal shelter which works to prevent the killing of tens of thousands of unwanted pets in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties each year. Since inception, we have saved over 50,000 domestic animals from being euthanized, placing them in homes through our adoption center. We also work with organizations, businesses, and local school districts to educate the community on animal awareness. At Tri-County Animal Rescue, we believe that every cat and dog—regardless of breed, gender, temperament, etc.—deserves to live a happy and healthy life. Our mission, then, aims to shelter and provide a comfortable home for all animals placed in our facility. We consider every animal that comes to our shelter a member of our own family, loving and caring for them with the utmost respect and tenderness until we can place them in their safe, happy, forever homes.
