Take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.  We are not just about saving animals but giving to the community.  If you find yourself struggling with your fur baby please contact us.  We may be able to help.

Our History

We are a group of middle aged women who have been saving animals since we could walk. In the early years it might have only been scooping the tadpoles out of a drying puddle; fast forward to our young adult years when the ex said, “it is me or the _______(pick the animal) and our immediate response was “well, see ya”. 

So we remained focused on our kidz (spelled that way because our animals are our children). We strive to rescue and make homes for every living being; whether it is a horse, goat, chicken, turtle, bunny, etc. No animal should go unloved. 

Our Mission

We believe we have the power to impact the world. Paws, Hooves and Halos rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes any animals in need. Our goal is to nurture these animals back to health, physically and emotionally, to give them their second chance with loving, caring and forever homes. 

We are no strangers to multitasking, along with rescuing, we would also like to:

-Help the community keep their pets during this pandemic by providing pet food. 

Set up an inexpensive spay & neuter program.

-Offer heartworm prevention at affordable cost.

If you or a loved one are in need of these services please TEXT Laura at 407-276-6937.

Who We Are

As individuals we each bring our own strengths to this dynamic group of animal defenders and warriors:

Cyndy: She is the backbone of the company. She keeps us uplifted and going when the not so great days outweigh the good ones. 

Emily:  She is the brains of the group.  There isn’t a problem she can’t solve with a few minutes of quiet time on the back porch watching the kidz play. 

Holly:  She is our cat whisperer. She speaks a language that the felines just want to dance to. Feral or a couch potato she will have them snuggling in no time.

Jessica: She is our go to for everything technology related. She has forgotten more than we will know about all this fancy technology, websites, phones and social media. 

Angela:  She helps out with animal care and technology.

Laura: The one who needs beauty sleep and doesn’t get it. Always ready for the midnight rescue whether she is in pajamas or actually dressed.

Adoption Fees


We do not ever charge adoption fees no matter the amount of financial support needed to get the fur baby healthy.

Amount of discount we receive from Vet & Box stores:

Zero, zilch, nada. We do NOT get a discount on veterinary care, feed, or pet supplies from the major suppliers.



Courtesy post.  Benji is not in the care of the rescue but I’ll be happy to put you in touch with his mom.  Benji is 6 years old, current with vaccines and neutered.  He is great with children and other dogs.  His mom has moved and does not have enough space for Benji to run and play. 


ADOPTED !!  We couldn’t be happier Rufus found his best forever home and has a new life ahead of him.  Rufus is a year and a half old treeing walker hound.  He is neutered and current with vaccines.  Rufus is not at the weight I would like him to be at yet, it’s a work in progress.  He is very shy at first but once he is your friend, it is a friend for life.  He is dog friendly but is easily intimidated and needs a friend who will go slow at first.  


ADOPTED !! It was our pleasure having Fanci & Paynt.  Fortunately they are going to an amazing home with lots of space to run & play.  


 Meet Snickerdoodle. She is back up to weight and ready for her new home.  She needs to be the only dog and no little humans.  She has warmed the idea of being snuggled and belly rubs.  She still has food aggression and cherishes every meal and cookie.  



Jake is a 4 yr old pit / shar-pei mutt mix.  He is so happy go lucky and always ready for an adventure. He plays well with other dogs but can be protective over his food.  He is neutered, current with vaccines and heart worm prevention.


James is a Neapolitan Mastiff. He is current with vaccines and neutered.  James loves all dogs and would do best in a home where he could have a friend.  Need to adopt a friend with him – we can take care of that.  He is a big goof ball and will make you laugh constantly.  I promised not to tell but he LOVES his ears cleaned. 


ADOPTED !  Thank you to the lovely young lady who gave him a forever home.  Chance is a 4 year old beagle.  He is neutered, current with vaccines and heart worm prevention.  Chance is a laid back guy, nothing really fast in his plans.  He gets along well with other dogs and loves people.  

More Dogs

Please ask us about all the dogs that we don’t have space for in the rescue.  It breaks our heart that we can’t help all the dogs by taking them into the rescue.  We can offer to find them homes.  If you are looking for a particular baby and don’t see it here please ask us.  


Were you spring cleaning but hate to throw out something that still has use.  You can box up those items and use the Amazon Give Back Box program to send it to us without paying shipping.  Please go onto Amazon Give Back Box website, print a label and send those useful items to us. 


We are working night and day to help save every animal that crosses our path. We are also trying to support our community by providing supplies needed to families who may need a little extra support with their fur baby. Please help us to help them.

Upgrades we are making

                    We are upgrading and adding more so we can provide the utmost care for the fur babies.

                      It is a work in progress, goes to show there are more chores than time in the day. We are creating an aviary.  This is only the start of the project but a great start at that.
