Information Due to the limited amount of space in our foster homes and the overwhelming number of kittens and cats needing help at this time, we are unable to take in any new fosters. If you have a stray cat or kitten that needs help or are looking to re-home your own cat, please read the section below to find out how to find homes for homeless pets. We are in the middle of kitten and puppy season which means that EVERY rescue organization and animal shelter in the Jacksonville area is facing this same situation – lack of space and not enough adoptions. Hundreds of animals are dropped off at area shelters daily and are being euthanized due to lack of space and not enough adoptions. Please do what you can to save your stray – you do not have to be a rescue group to do this – all of us in rescue are just regular people like yourself who have a compassion for animals and a desire to help.

Please, Spay and Neuter Approximately 5 MILLION healthy, loving, adoptable dogs and cats are killed in the United States each year because there are not enough homes for the millions of animals being bred. For every human birth, approximately seven cats and dogs are born. Do your part – please spay and neuter your pets!
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you’ll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

About Our Rescue Group: Springfield Pet Rescue Group is a registered non-profit 501(c) dedicated to placing stray and abandoned cats & dogs found within the borders of Historic Springfield, Jacksonville, FL in loving, responsible and committed homes, following a comprehensive adoption process. Trap, neuter & return of community feral cats through a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program in cooperation with local agencies and clinics. Community support and education for humane and responsible pet ownership. Founded in 2006, Springfield Pet Rescue Group (formerly Springfield Animal Care And Rescue Club) has successfully found “furever homes” for over 500 animals.
Pet Rescue North, Inc. (PRN) was established as a non-profit, NO-KILL animal shelter, registered with the State of Florida. PRN was the dream of a lady named Barbara Moody. She felt all abandoned and stray animals on the Northside of Jacksonville deserved to find a haven where they would be safe until suitable homes could be found. However, Barbara became seriously ill and passed away before her dream could become a reality. Peggy Haynes, a dedicated, hard working volunteer took over operation of PRN and the associated shelter. Although PRN is not yet the big beautiful facility Barbara had envisioned, we are fulfilling some of her dreams. PRN has been operating now for over twenty-seven years and is approved by United Way and Combined Federal Campaign. Caring for the animals and maintaining the shelter is a 24/7 operation. There are 80 dogs and cats at any one time, which require a lot attention. Some animals are special need pets requiring continuous medical attention, medicinal regime, exercise, love, etc. Currently, Brentwood Animal Hospital provides reasonably priced medical care for our “boarders” and makes it possible for all animals to be spayed or neutered at an affordable price, which is included in our adoption fee along with shots, wormings, FIV/Feluk and Diro tests.PRN also owes our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful volunteers without whom we could not keep up our daily schedule of feeding, cleaning, medicating, training and grooming. Our volunteers provide the love and socialization these very special cats and dogs need. Many of our little critters have been mentally and physically abused and it takes months to make them trust people again. Another outstanding group of people PRN could not do without are all the foster homes where animals, who otherwise would end up at kill shelters, are placed when we have no room at our own facility.When it comes time for adoption we try to be extremely careful where our animals are placed, including a minimum 2-week acclimation period to see if the pet fits into the new home. A verbal interview, a written questionnaire and a contract must be completed and signed. Unfortunately we are not always successful and cats and dogs are sometimes returned. However, we would rather have the pet back than it be in a home where it is not wanted.PRN operates from money received through the adoption fee, fund-raising activities, various animal protection grants and most of all donations. It also relies heavily on materials and equipment donated by concerned citizens. PRN MISSION STATEMENTPet Rescue North is a North Jacksonville, Florida NO-KILL animal shelter with the purpose of: Organize our community and establish an animal shelter on the Northside.

Cat of the Week Gina Gina is a beautiful brown tabby cat with green almond shaped eyes and a short tail as her fashion statement. She’s a spry senior kitty who is 9 years old. Gina is definitely her own girl with an independent nature and she would rather accompany you than be held or cuddled. She’s a very alert, curious and clever cat who doesn’t miss a trick. If you are willing to give Gina her own space and embrace the kind of cat she is, then Gina will make a great companion. Her best home would be adults only and even though she gets along with other cats, she would appreciate being the only cat or sharing space with one other cat. Gina loves attention from all her human friends, but is usually drawn to the men who visit the cattery! All of our cats have been spayed or neutered, are current on vaccinations, receive regular flea treatments and wellness care and are microchipped. Scroll down for more of our adoptable cats.
