Pups in Progress

Our Pups in Progress are currently under the care of METTA Rescue Family. Some dogs may not yet be ready for adoption due to medical reasons or we are still getting to know their personalities. While others might have a pending adoption or are in our foster-to-adopt program, meaning once they are ready for adoption, their foster family will be adopting them.

In an effort to reduce the homeless, neglected, injured, and abused canine population in the central FL area, METTA also strives to assist dogs whose owners have fallen on hard times so they can receive the medical attention, prevention, nutrition, comfort, and stability they deserve.

Friends of METTA Dogs

The Friends of METTA re-homing assistance program was created to help reduce the number of dogs in our local shelters and/or given away to unfit homes by assisting pet owners in re-homing their dog in a responsible way.

We do not personally know these dogs, nor are they under the care of the rescue. They are under the care of their owners who will work with you directly via Adopt-A-Pet if you are interested in their dog.
