Safe Harbor Animal Rescue Building Fund

Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys (SHARK) is in the process of updating and expanding our shelter facilities by constructing new buildings on the current property to house our growing number of abandonded and surrendered animals. With over 100 animals in our care, SHARK must expand to continue to provide our homeless animals with safe housing. 

Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys is a no-time limit, non-profit organization (501c3) formed in 2010 specifically to help the animal population in the Middle Keys. Our mission is to raise awareness in the community of pet overpopulation, to provide solutions to end the killing of homeless and neglected animals, and ultimately, through innovative ideas and energetic management, make the animal shelter in Marathon one of the most progressive shelters in the state.

Our philosophy of animal control is to make sure every animal we rescue, or is given up for adoption has the chance of a safe, secure, cruelty free life by working with intense dedication and to our utmost ability to place that animal in an appropriate, loving, caring home.

We believe that animals in our care are members of our family and of our community and as such deserve the best care and consideration.

We truly appreciate your donations and can begin construction as soon as enough funds are raised.
