Nala’s New Life Rescue 501 (c) (3) is dedicated to rescuing companion animals including dogs, cats and horses that have been abused, forgotten, rejected or abandoned.

Nala’s New Life Rescue saved the lives of 150 dogs and placed them in new homes last year.

We never discriminate on the basis of health, age or breed. We specialize in saving unwanted dogs who otherwise would be euthanized or gassed at kill shelters. Once rescued, all of our animals  have a full veterinary examination, vaccinations and are spayed or neutered before they are placed into carefully screened foster homes or placed up for adoption. If neither a foster home or permanent home are available, the dogs are boarded temporarily at local vets or day care facilities until they are emotionally and/or physically healed or a home becomes available.

Meet Our Dogs In The Spotlight


Nala’s is a foster-based rescue, with dogs in various locations throughout Martin County in foster homes and/or  boarding facilities.

“Meet and Greets” are conducted by appointment only and will be set up after an adoption application has been submitted.

Here are the dogs available for adoption.

We will try to have all the appropriate dogs at one location for the scheduled initial meet and greet. We encourage you to bring your dog to the appointment if you are looking for a compatible match!

If you are interested in any of Nala’s dogs please contact Barbi to schedule your appt., call (772) 485-3799 or email at

Thank you for  your understanding.



Nala’s New Life Rescue is pleased to announce our new partnership with Hospice of the Treasure Coast. Our no kill organization was approached to partner with them to take and place pets from patients who have passed away and there are no other options for the animals. We really need foster homes more than ever as the dogs that come to us under these circumstances have obviously come from homes and been through a lot and will do much better placed in a foster or forever home than a kennel. Darwin, a male Golden Retriever/Terrier mix recently lost his owner and needs a new home. He is 6 years old, 50 lbs., neutered, up to date on vaccinations, great with other dogs and is housebroken. There are 2 purebred small young Poodles that came with him and they also need a foster home as they might have a forever home already. Please share as Darwin, Ryder and Audie are hoping for a new family as soon as possible.

Volunteers Needed!

Nala’s is a ‘Foster’ based rescue and has many rescued dogs in their care, it is a very big task to take care of these babies daily. If you are a volunteer, or looking for a way to volunteer, please consider donating some time to help with the feeding and caring for these dogs. One day, or a few days, would make a world of difference for the dogs. They are wonderful dogs waiting to be fostered or adopted, human contact is very important for them. The location is Palm City off Citrus Blvd., help is needed 4-6 daily. If interested, please contact Barbi at 772-485-3799 or send an email at Thank you!
