Adopting A Friend



The basic requirements for adoption from the Tri-County Animal Rescue are as follows:

  • If you lease or rent, you must have permission from your landlord or the primary resident where you live prior to adoption. Proof such as a lease or documentation will need to be shown
  • If adopting a dog that is 4 months and older, Tri-County Animal Rescue suggests you bring in your dog for an official “meet and greet.”
  • If you currently have a dog or cat at home, you must provide proof that he or she is current on vaccinations and sterilized.
  • Tri-County Animal Rescue does not authorize adoptions to be “gifts.” The person who will be considered the owner of the pet must be present and go through the adoption process.
  • You will be asked to complete a preliminary questionnaire prior to adoption.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age.
  • If you are at least 18 years of age but still live with your parents, the home-owners would need to fill out the application.
  • Must be a permanent Florida resident or have dual residency in the state. 

NOTE: Tri-County Animal Rescue reserves the right to refuse adoption to anyone for any reason. We do not hold animals, nor does the submission of the Pre-Adoption application entitle you to any particular animal.

Please do not try to adopt in a hurry. Weekends are busy and you may have to wait more than an hour (especially in the afternoons) so please be prepared.


Spay/Neuter, Rabies vaccination and License, initial vaccinations, microchip identification, first deworming, treatment for parasites/fleas, heart worm check, feline leukemia and FIV test (cats), and adoption welcome kit.



Who We Are

Tri-County Animal Rescue is a 100% no kill, nonprofit animal shelter based in Boca Raton, Florida. Our goal is to prevent the killing of over 170,000 unwanted pets in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties each year. Since 1997, we have saved over 55,000 domestic animals from being euthanized. We also work with several local organizations and the local school district to educate the community on animal awareness.At Tri-County Animal Rescue, we believe that every animal deserves to live a happy and healthy life. Our mission aims to shelter and provide a comfortable home for all of the animals that are placed in our facility. We consider each cat and dog a member of our family, loving and caring for them with the utmost respect and tenderness until we can place them in their safe, happy, forever home. Every day, we witness animals who were once in despair—stray, neglected, abused, malnourished, or unwanted—leaving our care as happy, healthy animals. To see them walk out of our doors as completely changed animals is a joy that is difficult to express.
