Metta is an extremely caring and responsible rescue. I have a long-time foster of theirs, Cookie, who has a long list of health issues. The lengths that they go through to support this boy and ensure he is happy and well cared for is amazing.

I love METTA Rescue Family! I have volunteered at events and transported dogs for METTA so I have seen firsthand all of the love and care that goes towards saving dogs that otherwise would not have had a chance to live a wonderful life. It is truly miraculous and inspiring to see the transformations these pups go through when they know they are finally loved and safe!

I also have to say that I have met so many caring people who are involved with METTA Rescue Family that it certainly restores my faith in humanity!

In addition to rescuing dogs from shelters and neglect cases, METTA also offers the Friends of METTA re-homing program to help dogs find loving homes when their people can no longer keep them. It is innovative programs like this that help keep more dogs from entering already overcrowded shelters.

I am so proud of everything that METTA Rescue Family has accomplished so far and look forward to continuing to support their mission of rescuing dogs in our community!

My family came into contact with Metta Rescue Family after we said goodbye to our beloved boxer Bella. We were looking to add a new member to our quiet household, and weren't quite sure where to start. We contacted various other rescues, but felt that Metta was the right one. Their screening process was easy, and we could tell it is to ensure the animal that they are placing goes to the right home. They gave us tools, and support during the adoption process of our new furbaby Zeus. We have emailed with numerous questions since the adoption was finalized and they continue to impress us with their response, and insight to whatever the question is with Zeus.
We have seen friends adopt/rescue a dog from other groups, and the profile is minimal, background or information on the animal is vague. Metta sets the bar, my opinion, as we didn't feel any point that Zeus was a secret problem animal that other groups try to disguise as something else. They were very up front on his personality, quirks, and concern spots so we knew exactly what we were getting into before we brought Zeus into our home.
Zeus is a quirky 1.5 year old mix breed, and he is quite dapper, sweet - he can be a bit energetic in the morning, but he is fast becoming a cuddle bug.
We can not say enough wonderful things about Metta - We just wish other rescues were as amazing as Metta!

Without the amazing efforts from the ladies of METTA, Sophie would not be alive today. We are so grateful for this rescue for pulling Sophie out of the shelter and Saving her life. This lil girl is so special to us and we just adore her. This rescue has saved so many dogs and puppies in just a lil over a year, since they opened, with Sophie being their very first rescue. METTA makes you feel apart of the family and provides everything we need to be a foster, all we provide is love.

METTA Rescue Family is a highly regarded 501c rescue in the central Florida area. They offer invaluable resources to the community and provide safe haven for major medical dogs from the local shelters. They go above and beyond for the dogs they rescue (like senior dog Ethel pictured below) and truly embody all the values of a reputable rescue organization.

METTA Rescue Family is one of the most dedicated volunteer based non profit organizations in the central Florida area. Their mission in finding the proper home for each animal based on their own individual needs is why they are able to successfully place their rescues into loving homes. Dogs ranging from having severe medical needs to those with behavioral issues; all dogs have a voice with METTA Rescue Family. By also providing education to the public, financial assistance for community animals, and a team full of love & commitment, METTA Rescue Family offers a path of success to everyone involved. I am proud to volunteer for such a responsible and truly compassionate rescue.

METTA Rescue Family is an amazing organization. They go over and above to help some of the neediest dogs in the central FL community. Dogs who would otherwise not make it out of situations without METTA's intervention. These are dogs with major medical issues, dogs abandoned in the community, dogs who were not being cared for properly by previous owners, and so much more. METTA takes them in, finds them a loving foster home, gets them the medical and emotional care they need to become their best selves and ready for a new forever home. This is all done by volunteers who rely solely on donations. They are a foster-based rescue and must have foster-homes in order to be able to save more dogs. Please consider donating, fostering, adopting, or volunteering for this wonderful rescue. It is so rewarding.

METTA Rescue Family is run by compassionate volunteers that have a passion for saving animals in need. They are committed to following a strict Code of Conduct to ensure their morals and values are upheld at all times. This rescue is not focused solely on the number of dogs saved but the quality of care and attention each animal receives from the moment they enter the rescue until they are in a safe forever home. I am proud to say I am a board member, volunteer, foster, and donor of METTA Rescue Family.
