Hi all! I've started this community to see if I could find a way to help people in Florida have a central locale to find help for animals when they need it. I couldn't find a comm like this in the LJ search, so here we are! The intent is to help people find pets to adopt, find pets they've lost, help pets get homes, and get other great info like where to go for low-cost spay/neuter, all that kind of thing. If you have a pet that needs a home, that's great to post them here but I request that animals for "sale" (i.e., animals intentionally brought into the world by the poster, whether a backyard breeder or a real breeder who does the right thing by the animals) NOT post here.
Also, PLEASE, no "free to good home" ads. See this link on why: http://www.nhes.org/articles/view/159
All animals should have at least a small adoption fee, and in the case of dogs/cats/rabbits, be spayed/neutered (or at least on a contract for it if health/age does not permit.)
Other than that, even questions like "is my cat in heat" are fine, although this is IN NO WAY a substiute for legitimate veterinary counsel, and you'll probably be told to take the animal to the vet or at least Google it. :)
Suggestions are more than welcome, and please tell your friends, and feel free to cross-post! Thanks!!!
