Pet Welfare is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, no-kill animal shelter located on Eglin Air Force Base in Northwest Florida. The shelter places nearly 300 abandoned, stray, and homeless cats and dogs every year.
Pet Welfare has been in operation since 1982 where we were once just giving the cats and dogs away because there were so many and we were just happy to find a home for all the strays. Still to this day Pet Welfare is a no-kill facility open to the public trying to aid the military when they have to leave their pets behind.
In 2002, after 6 years of hard fundraising, Pet Welfare celebrated the grand opening of a new facility. We are always in need of volunteers and foster homes and depend solely on donations and grants. Everyday we love and care for animals in need and on those days when we feel we’re the only ones caring or can barely think straight because we’re so tired, we pick ourselves up and look around and remember what we do it for...the animals that need us.
