About Our Rescue

Our main office is in Southwest Florida. 
We have recently branched out into the Austin area, adopting dogs all over central Texas. 

Abby’s Little Friends Rescue is a not-for-profit (501(c)(3)), no-kill organization that is dedicated to rescuing pets and giving them a second chance in life.  These pets have been abandoned, lost, abused or for other reasons given away. We give them the health care and love that they may need, evaluating them for behavior and temperament and placing them in the loving homes they deserve. Comprised exclusively of dedicated volunteers, Abby’s Little Friends Rescue is committed to rescuing, fostering, transporting, and otherwise coordinating efforts to help pets in need find their way to their forever home.  


We screen every applicant very carefully to ensure that they understand and accept the responsibilities involved in caring properly for a pet. A detailed application form is a pre-adoption requirement. From this, we conduct a thorough reference check and a home visit with all family members and other pets in the household


Until a forever home becomes available, our pets are safe and lovingly cared for in private, approved foster homes in which we observe and evaluate each pet for temperament and behavior, continue with the pet's socialization and training, and provide for their health and well-being.


Adoption Donations defray expenses incurred during the rescue process, (i.e., vaccines, medical care, spay/neuter, heartworm treatment).
