Animal Shelter and Charity Organization Pick Me! is a pet rescue dedicated to helping pets in need. We feel that the best way to get a pet a new home is to list them on an adoption site and follow a proven standard process to approve a new home for them.

We stand with 100+ ADE. The heart of every animal rescuer is heavy and worried. The tragic loss of a beloved and devoted animal loving volunteer and the injury of another devoted animal loving volunteer is simply heartbreaking. The other tragedy is Gladys, the dog involved in this incident. Gladys was failed by humans in her life prior to her rescue and that failure lead to the death of a rescuer working hard to clean up after another humans irresponsibility. It also lead to Gladys’ death and her possible only chance of peace from her suffering. The homelessness and cruelty of animals in this country (and worldwide) is on the shoulders of every rescuer and we are all fighting an uphill battle. Let’s not make this tragic incident about an animal or a breed of dog, it is a human problem. We can and must do better. Our thoughts are with everyone close to this tragedy and our wish is for better solutions to the animal homelessness and cruelty in this world.
This is a very sad day in rescue. 100+ Dogs down in south Florida lost a volunteer in a dog attack. They do so much good, this is just heartbreaking.
Please consider posting a comment of support on their page.
Below is a post from another rescuer and it’s disturbing that people would be so disrespectful at a time like this. 😞

When Ronda Archangelo’s dog Mimi died after being treated with gabapentin that contained xylitol, she wondered how such a tragic mistake could have happened. Her veterinarian realized she made a terrible mistake, admitting she didn’t know the liquid solution of gabapentin contained xylitol, but ...
This is exactly why rescues go through the process we do to find the right adopter. I am so tired of hearing complaints about how rescues are too strict and make you jump through hoops to get a dog. This poor baby had people watching out for her and STILL had a monster get a hold of her.
To all of you out there that took the time to work with a rescue and ‘jump through the hoops’ we appreciate you!
I hope Nala is finally at peace. 💔🐾
Nala update- The dreaded post that no parent ever wants to make. Part of Nalas body was recovered today. She’s been deceased since 8/6 (the day after the After they started their adoption trial).
I’m so sorry we failed to do our job and keep you safe as we promised u over a year ago when we rescued you. I’m sorry your last moments u felt scared instead of loved. I’m sorry we weren’t there to hold your paw as you crossed over this life. Most of all I’m sorry there is monsters in this world that have no regard for life. YOUR LIFE MATTERED. And your life will continue to matter to us
We will be pursuing both civil & criminal charges. What happened to Nala is to disturbing for details. I want to say thank you to Washington County PD & Chipley Animal Control for going above & beyond today & giving us the closure Nala deserved.
Today 8/27 marks the end of this search but the beginning of a fight for justice. We will not rest until they are held accountable for their actions.
HUGE Thank You to ALL of YOU who took the time to share Nala & offer assistance. I know she would be amazed on how she made an entire world that seems to be so divided right now come together for one sole purpose. Never underestimate the power of love & unity 💕
‼️We will be putting together a Memorial for Nala if u would like to contribute or to be added to the group please click on the link
As of today FBLR will be taking a pause on rescue. We want to focus solely on getting Nala the justice she deserves as well as the current dogs in our foster program. Please understand & respect this 🙏🏻
OK everyone, let’s see your pups! It’s National Dog Day, show them some love! ❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️

Here is another example of a deadly plant available at Lowes this weekend. This is a Sago Palm. Ingestion of ANY part of this by dogs or cats is toxic and often results in liver failure and death. The seeds are the most toxic part.
If you have pets, do NOT buy this plant. I really wish there was signage by these warning pet owners of their toxicity.

Yesterday we posted a Freedom Ride picture with two dogs in it. One was Jagger (11 weeks old) and the other one was Smokey (3 years old), while many of the comments were heartfelt and sweet, we received so many private messages, emails, and even applications (even though he wasn't available yet) to adopt Jagger, not one was for Smokey. While we do understand the sentiment behind this, we also want to remind people to read our puppy adoption requirements on our website and to consider an older dog if you don't meet them.
🚫 Why not to get a puppy 🚫
*You have never had a dog
*Because the puppy is really cute
*Because you want to give as a present
*You are never home during the day
*You are on a tight budget
*You don’t have the time/patience to train him
*You have not done research on the breed
*The family moves around a lot
*You have a baby/young child or planning on having a baby
*No prior ownership exp. with a challenging breed like a husky
*A neighbor/friend's exp. does not count as yours
*You don't have another adult dog from whom the puppy can learn
🥰 Why consider a senior (5+years) dog?🥰
*Be a hero and adopt a dog in need
*Senior dogs need homes too
*Senior dogs can learn new tricks
*Your furniture and carpet will thank you
*Years of fun and love are still ahead
*Experience a laid back four-legged living
*What you see is what you get
*They require less time and supervision
*They are less demanding
*Senior dogs are appreciative
*Senior dogs are adorable
✅ HHOFL Facts ✅
*50% of the people consider a dog’s appearance when adopting
*70% of the applicants do not read the bios on our website/posts
*Getting an animal is a life-long decision
*The adoption fee is the cheapest thing you will ever spend on a dog
*That husky puppy will only look like a puppy for about 9 months.
It’s not wrong to take a pet’s looks or age into consideration if it matters to you – however, it should not be the only thing that matters. When you’re looking to bring a new pet home, consider whether you have the time to give that pet the exercise and attention they need. Can you handle the financial responsibilities? Not just food and toys, but also medical care and grooming. Will they do well with other pets or children you have in your home? How many times a day will they need to exercise and are you up for it? There’s so much more to think about than just looks.
For anyone following the page that is interested in the dogs that are currently up for adoption, I apologize for the delays. I had a death in the family out of state and I’ve had to travel back and forth while still working full time, and trying to respond to all of you.
I promise that I am working on it and I am trying to respond to everyone. I have put the dogs on hold, so you will no longer see them on line to give me time to catch up.
Thank you for your understanding.
Monty & Suzie update!
Monty and Suzie, my two Malts, adopted me a year ago. It feels like we been together forever. Shadow, my Aussie, is their big brother. When Shadow is sleeping, they actually tap him on his nose to wake him up so they can all start demanding a treat. Shadow at times watches them see what they're up. We just love them so much! They are all a joy!!!!
This Christmas, I wish for everyone to find their own furry kid or kids to hug and love 4-ever!
Many blessings to you, Cynthia, for all your great care and a wonderful mission.

We feel that the best way to get a pet a new home is to list them on an adoption site and follow a proven standard process to approve a new home for them. We list dogs that we are currently fostering and dogs that we are not fostering ourselves, through 'courtesy posts' so that they will get the second chance to find a wonderful forever family. We also train our fosters that pass the evaluation and place dogs for Therapy, Emotional Support, and Service when appropriate. Every dog that we adopt will have it's current vaccines, be spayed or neutered, and be on regular flea and heart worm preventive.
