Saving with Soul began its Miracle-Making at the Walton County Animal Shelter in Defuniak Springs way back in early 2012, starting with just a handful of shelter volunteers. From 2012 until 2017, we worked exclusively with Walton County and helped take their euthanasia rate (for dogs) from 70% down to less than 15%. We learned a lot during our tenure with Walton County about how shelters work, and more importantly, what it takes to save lives.
In 2017, Walton County asked us not-so-politely to leave. I’ll spare you the gory details, but just know that it was a painful moment in our history; one those of us who were around at the time won’t soon forget. But we got up, shook ourselves off and officially became Saving with Soul Pet Rescue, Inc. and the rest is history! Or, rather, history in the making.
Since that fateful day in early 2017, Saving with Soul has saved more than 2,000 dogs and cats, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
