 Saving Paw & Hooves in Central Florida

Saving paws and hooves is a non-profit organization in Central Florida dedicated to saving and helping small and large animals that are in a life or death situation and there are no finances available for medical treatment.

​Our goal is to be able to provide financial help to families that can not afford to save their pet. Through our non-profit, we will be able to provide help, relief, and faith that there are gestures of greatness and gratitude within our community.

It is vital that we are creating environments that are inspiring and uplifting to others in our area. While we are blessed to be able to have the passion and drive to save animals, we, in turn, create a ripple effect of happier and kind-hearted humans.







Florida C.H.A.I.N. Inc. (Community Helping Animals in Need) is a grass-roots non-profit organization 501(c) 3, dedicated to saving the lives of precious animals. Our mission: to coordinate and subsidize emergency veterinary care for owned, orphaned, or abandoned dogs and cats, where financial hardship necessitates our assistance. A secondary mission is to keep pets from being dumped or placed in shelters due to an owner’s inability to provide necessary food and/or accommodations, physical or behavioral, thereby enabling the animals to remain in their own safe homes.



SPCA of Marion County

Founded in 1999, we are a 501.c Non-Profit dedicated to rescuing animals throughout Marion County and placing them in permanent homes. The SPCA of Marion County supports its goals of animal welfare by:  Finding loving homes for unwanted cats and dogs Supporting individuals or families willing to foster Reuniting lost pets with their loved ones Donating to ethical animal charitable organizations Offsetting the cost of pet medical care for needy families Supplying and packing food for the Pets on Wheels program Educating our community about animal welfare. **Our veterinary medical assistance program for low income families has been very high lately. We are in desperate need of cash donations to continue this worthy program for local families. We don’t take any of the money for organizational expenses. It all goes to helping pets right here in Marion County Florida. Any amount is welcome.** ​

The VOCAL Community Clinic and Resource Center is the first of its kind in Marion County!

Today, the VOCAL Community Clinic and Resource Center is often a lifeline to pet parents who need veterinary care for their animal, but find it prohibitively expensive.
