F.L.U.F.F. Animal Rescue
(Foster & Love Furry Friends)
of Seminole, Pinellas county,
and Tampa Bay, Florida
FLUFF exists to save lives and make a difference! Through community awareness, assistance, education and rescue, we aim to confront animal over-population and shelter over-crowding. We are a foster-based community rescue
(a 501c3 public not-for-profit charity).
At this time, FLUFF has a strong preference for adopting dogs to homes within the state of Florida. If you live elsewhere, we suggest checking with your local shelters/rescues for an adoptable pup.
