Volunteer hours are available in the morning 8am-12pm and afternoon 2pm-5pm 7 days a week.
We’d love for you to come by and spend time with the animals.
Nala was a companion and friend whose brave fight against bone cancer inspired me to re-name my rescue in honor of her.
Nala’s New Life Rescue has been saving dogs for years who have no other hope. We have a true “no-kill policy” and save dogs who need to be rescued regardless of age, breed, or health issues.
We specialize in saving unwanted dogs (and cats) from kill shelters all over Florida who otherwise would be euthanized or gassed, Nala’s New Life Rescue pays to pull the dogs to safety, cover all medical and transportation expenses, and provides a safe foster home or boarding facility until a foster or forever home is approved.
All of our animals have a full veterinary examination, vaccinations and are spayed or neutered. We care for them until they are emotionally and or physically healed or home becomes available.
Nala’s New Life Rescue has saved and placed over 150 dogs in new homes in 2016. Nala’s New Life Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Saving adult cats from rural shelters, Nala’s is their only hope! After hearing about how long these amazing cats were in the shelter, and that their time was up, Barbi our director, did not hesitate to see if we could add cats to our last transport to Virgina Beach SPCA. They graciously accepted them. They had a few days waiting in one of our volunteers homes before their journey, here is just a dose of why we do what we do… quote from our volunteer Amy, who has two young girls… “ They we’re the sweetest cats! They had acted like they had never seen toys before and ate two big bowls each of dry food, it brought tears to my eyes! My girls loved all of them, and they were all so gentle and great with my kids.” Now fast forward a few weeks, they are all adopted and in amazing homes! Here is just one of the many heartfelt stories from Cliff, now Oliver’s adopter… “I just wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for the part you played in rescuing this boy (we’ve renamed him Oliver) and allowing him to find his way to us. Our family adopted him about a month ago from the Virginia Beach SPCA, and we are so beyond in love. It feels like he was made specifically for us, as though he was the missing piece of our family puzzle. The whole family is obsessed with him, We’ve only had one other cat and she passed in 2020, so the kids especially are over the moon. Every night we tell him okay it’s bedtime, and he RUNS up the stairs and jumps in my six year-old’s bed to listen to books and get pets from him. 😭 He’s so tolerant of our two little kids, he’s a really remarkable angel. “ Most of these amazing souls out in the rural shelters really have no hope, except for when Nala’s comes to their rescue! They make amazing family pets, and here at Nala’s, we live for these stories. Today is critical for our rescue efforts, any donations will go right back to saving these great family animals, so more memories and love can be shared for years to come.🐾😻❤️ Pictures include Oliver, and his brother Hudson. From shelter to loving homes! #virginiabeachspca #givingtuesday #GivingTuesday2021 #nalasrescue
Congratulations to Frankie and Sissy on their adoptions! We would like to thank everyone who applied for them but we really wanted to keep this sweet brother and sister together. They were rescued from Okeechobee Animal Control and all they had was each other. Many thanks to our great foster mom Tammie and her family who cared for Frankie and Sissy until we found the prefect forever home. And we are thankful for Mary and Michael for adopting both and welcoming them into their home. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!
Congratulations to Hershey (on the left) on his adoption! Hershey was one of the most neglected dogs we have ever rescued. Barbi was at Okeechobee Animal Control choosing dogs to go on our transport to Chicago and there was Hershey. He was barely able to walk and completely starved with very little hair. The manager said he had been going down hill every day and basically could not get up. Nala’s New Life Rescue took him immediately to the vet and we found out among other things that he had been probably been hit by a car and both back legs were injured. With the help of our generous followers, Nala's was able to raise money for his surgery. He has come such a long way and is now comfortable and happy. Thanks to Dr. Padrone and Dr. Latimer for their expert surgery and to Dr. Mary Bressman for finding the solution to keep him comfortable. After his surgery we put a plea out for a foster to get Hershey in a home. A year later and much love and patience, Kara and James have decided to adopt Hershey. They are moving back to their hometown in Texas and Hershey will be going with them along with their dog Trooper, who is now best friends with Hershey. Their dedication to Hershey during his recovery has been unwavering and we wish Hershey and his new family a lifetime of happiness! #Nalasrescue #happynalastails #dreamcomestrue
