The Runaways

Animal Rescue

A 501(c)3 Animal Rescue in Pasco County, FL, our mission is to protect and advocate for all companion animals in need. We do this  through rescue, adoption and spay and neuter services. Additionally, we hope to build a humane community that promotes compassion and kindness, by controlling the overpopulation of these animals through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), community outreach services, pet food bank, and education.

 

Our Story

Formed in 2020

This year we put our passion and dreams into action and started a nonprofit called, The Runaways Animal Rescue.

 

We didn't know at the time, that shortly after, a world-wide pandemic would start. This has brought us several challenges to our new rescue, especially not being able to have public fundraisers and adoption events. 

However, we have pushed through, and still managed to save over 400 animals in the 10 short months we have been a rescue.

We know our community needs more support, and while we are already making a difference, we wanted to do MORE! We have been working hard, and we are so excited to share that with the help of some amazing supporters, we are so fortunate to have purchased an amazing 7000 sq ft shelter facility!!  


This facility is going to be life changing to the animals, as well as the people in our community, but we need your help. The facility needs tons of renovations in order to get it running. Your donations will help us with renovations, start up costs, and the necessary funds to be able to maintain the shelter and provide this much needed service to the community and SAVES LIVES.  We believe that all animals deserve a chance at forever home and a happy ending, so we are asking the public for your help to raise the necessary funds to support our mission and help our dreams come true.

Foster Stories

Since opening our doors, The Runaways Animal Rescue has developed and grown, mostly because of our exceptional foster team. Read their stories. 

Alexandra Shaw

I have always been a huge animal lover, and before I started fostering with The Runaways Animal Rescue. I had been taking in various animals that needed a place to call home.

I have been a vet tech for just over 3 years now and have always wanted to work with animals. I started fostering just just over 2 years ago when a client of ours brought in two kittens.

Hi!  I’m Nikki and this is my 6 year old sidekick that is a self proclaimed “kitten trainer”.  I started following The Runaways on social media last year when we were looking for a new kitten to join our family.

I started fostering 10 years ago. I had stopped at a local shelter, and there was a sweet older woman, sitting behind a desk, feeding a baby kitten...with a baby bottle!

I run a brand called Felinious Hops which focuses on cats and beer. Since developing the brand 5 years ago, my love for cats has really escalated.
