Let’s Rescue “Pet Rescue by Judy” a Central Florida Icon

www.PetRescueByJudy.rescuegroups.com Extreme Makeover Petition site www.petitiononline.com Judy Sarullo, an animal rescuer in Central Florida for over 15 years, lost her kennel 18 months ago due to a zoning issue. Since then she has had to rely on a network of foster homes and dedicated volunteers. Despite these limitations, she finds homes for over 1500 cats and dogs a year. Now, however, she is facing a new threat that may mean the demise of this vital Central Florida resource. Orange County Code Enforcement has found her in violation of code and given her six months to come into compliance or face fines of 0/day. Since Code Enforcement will not tell her in what way she is “out of compliance” this essentially means Judy has to move or shut down her rescue! Judy has six months to relocate and is asking communities in the tri-county area to offer suggestions. She is searching for a small parcel of land, zoned for industrial use, that has power and water to it and can be fenced! More importantly, she wants to relocate to an area whose community will welcome her and her cause. For those of you who are against euthanasia, against the “catch and kill” cycle of some pounds, and against gassing shelters, please know that Judy has saved many dogs and cats from these situations. Many organizations have rescued animals from gassing shelters and transported animals directly to Judy’s rescue, who are then placed in the loving homes of her foster families, until adoptions are made

  1. I used to be in animal rescue myself and I know how much work, self-sacrifice, and dedication it takes! I will definitely spread the word. I’m appalled at News Channel 13 and will let them know how I feel. SPCA is great but are very recognized already. The little rescues need all the help they can get. Judy- I hope everything works out, keep the faith!!

  2. Thank you for your positive words. They are what keep us going! We appreciate the work of the SPCA but, goodness, as you say, they already have high recognition and funding. There are so many small rescues struggling every day, making a difference in the lives of those they touch!

  3. That is a beautiful video, what can people do to help?

  4. We are asking for ideas, donations, calls to politicians or others who can help, and most of all we hare hoping that someone can donate industrial zoned land in Seminole County. And please sign the Extreme Home Makeover petition, whether you are a Florida resident or not. If the producers see national interest, maybe they will follow through. Thank you so much!

  5. I did sign the petition, sent it to my daughters and friends in Orlando to share with their friends. Thank you
