FishHawk TNR, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization based in FishHawk Ranch, serving the Lithia, Riverview, Apollo Beach, Valrico, Bloomingdale, Brandon and Tampa Area. We are an all volunteer, donation run rescue. Our mission is to rescue, vaccinate, spay/neuter, microchip and find loving adoptive homes for stray and neglected animals. We also TNvR community cats, reducing euthanasia rates and educating our community on animal issues! Together we can change the lives of both people and animals in Hillsborough County!
Rescued is our favorite breed and we believe in choosing adoption to save a life!!
Our adoption process starts with an email to our Adoption Coordinator:
Ali - FishHawkTNR4@gmail.com
We will email you an application and more information on the animal. Please include their name in the subject line of the email.
Approved applications will be scheduled a playdate at the foster home of the adoptable animal.
Approved adoptions are scheduled and delivered for a home check. (Yard check applies when applicable for dogs.)
Please note: We run on volunteers- inquiries can take up to 2 weeks for reply. Application process takes up to 2 weeks additionally. We deliver and home check for all adoptions, this is non-negotiable. Due to this policy we do ask that potential adopters be in the state of Florida, within 1 hour from the FishHawk Ranch/Apollo Beach areas. We will make few exceptions and appreciate the understanding in advance to our policies. Application does NOT guarantee adoption. We must be emailed directly for a response.
All of our animals come fully and completely vetted- this includes: spay/neuter, microchipped with lifetime registration, dewormed, flea treated, current on all age appropriate shots and combo tested negative for Fiv and Felv for cats and negative for heartworms for dogs (as well as current on heartworm prevention.)
All of our animals come vet cleared and with their full adoption portfolio and an adoption fee which we collect upon the home check. Those fees can be paid in check to FishHawk TNR, by cash or paypal.
Please note that we are never first come first served, rather we believe in matching the right animal to the right home and vice versa to ensure a safe and happy placement for all involved. Our goal is FOREVER homes and we have a less than 5% return rate in over 7 years proving that purrsonality is truly the most important thing! Ask us about our match-making services! Our Director has over 15 years of animal training and behavior experience!
