 About Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue

On April 2, 2012, a group of seasoned rescuers united, in memory of an animal lover, Justin Bartlett, who tragically lost his life at a young age, and formed the Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue. 

The group’s knowledge base, long volunteer “hands-on” hours, common sense and research driven processes, together they built the largest foster based rescue in the county, saving an average of a thousand animals each year.  Though time consuming and exhausting, there was still more work to be done.

Due to the dire need for low cost veterinary care in the community, on May 28, 2015, the Justin Bartlett Animal Hospital was founded! To date, the hospital has served over 10,000 patients, and performed over 3,500 spay/neuter surgeries, some on our mobile surgical unit, within specific ecenimically disadvantaged areas, at no cost to the public .

 

The Mission

Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue’s mission is to reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats from becoming victim to shelter euthanasia, while educating the public on the importance of adoption and spay and neuter in our community.  Our 100% volunteer staff is dedicated to saving pregnant and nursing animals, as well as, orphaned puppies/kittens, homeless adult pets, and any unwanted animal, whether sick or healthy, black or spotted. If there is an open foster home and available funds we will ensure the animal receives its forever home. Every animal we rescue is placed in a foster home, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, tested, and provided any other necessary medical care. Once the animal is ready for adoption, they will remain in our foster program until a perfect match, between the animal and a new family is made.
