FLUFF ("From Lonely & Unloved to Forever Family")
Our Mission Statement encompasses all the desires of animal lovers. FLUFF Animal Rescue 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. Our tagline sums up how we feel about the animals in our care: From Lonely and Unloved to Forever Family. FLUFF has over 150 fosters and volunteers who partner with the rescue every day to help save lives! In 2019, the rescue expanded operations to include a 3000 sq. ft. thrift retail store, and in May, 2020, FLUFF gained a new partner, Robin Vergara, who brought his time and talents to increase revenue and expand retail operations. FLUFF Animal Rescue and FLUFF Re-Tail for Rescue now operate simultaneously in one 8000 sq ft building in the city of Seminole, Florida. With an overwhelming response from our community and partner rescue friends, FLUFF Animal Rescue and FLUFF Re-Tail for Rescue is among one of the top rescues in the area.

Kimmy Chandler Founder
Kimmy Chandler, Founder of FLUFF Animal Rescue began saving lives at an early age. “Finding homes for unwanted and abandoned animals has always been a passion,” says Chandler. Since the age of 15, Kimmy has been a teacher to students of all ages-both inside and out of the classroom and has been caring for stray and resident animals as a display of her belief that “It is our job to care for God’s creatures”. In 2016, Chandler was able to realize her full potential as a teacher and animal rescuer, and during an afternoon luncheon with her immediate family, a new community non-profit rescue was born. Then 6-yr-old daughter, Alex coined the name “FLUFF”, and both Alex and the rescue have grown substantially over the past 5 years. “We have seen many faces come and go since our inception, but I am confident with a solid team of animal lovers by my side, the animals will always win”.
