Our Mission

METTA Rescue Family is a 501c3 non-profit, all-breed, foster-based dog rescue powered by donations and volunteers with a focus on critical medical, hospice, and disabled dogs. Our foster homes are located throughout Volusia, Seminole, Orange, Osceola, and Lake county FL. We have a passion and love for all animals and are focused on dogs as they hold a special place in our hearts. The goal of METTA Rescue Family is to work hand in hand with other rescues, shelters, and the central Florida community to reduce the homeless, neglected, injured, and abused canine population while upholding our code of ethics. Please consider joining the family and making a difference today!

The METTA Dogs

All of our adoptable dogs are spayed/neutered, medically cleared, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and have a lot of love to give!
