Safe Harbor Animal Rescue forced to turn away animals

Posted by Paige Bresky - email

JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - A local non-profit animal shelter is forced to turn away animals and layoff a dozen employees.

Safe Harbor Animal Rescue is a no-kill shelter that's been open for 25 years, but now all those decades of work are in jeopardy.

Founder and CEO Kay-Lynette Roca says the organization is down a $500,000. Money is needed to keep the shelter up and running.

Currently, their facility in Jupiter accepts unwanted or abandoned animals and adopts them out to loving homes, but we're told Safe Harbor is overloaded now -- housing more than 100 dogs and 350 cats. "We just need some nice wealthy angles, and we need volunteers," said Roca.

Now, the facility will be open only Friday, Saturday and Sunday for adoptions. The animal hospital will remain open.
