a little about us

In Memory of Our Bailey

“Rescue One by One Until

Bailey’s Way Rescue is a foster based, 501c3 non-profit rescue, with a strong presence in the Tampa Bay and Fort Myers areas. We are a group of volunteers dedicated to rescuing abandoned, neglected or abused dogs and cats, including those who have run out of time at public shelters.

In addition to our rescue efforts, we are very active in the community through events and education. We do our best to help animal owners keep their dogs & cats in their homes with assistance of vet care or dog/cat food when needed. Most significantly, Bailey’s Way is foster based and provides our fosters with everything needed for the animals, to include monthly heartworm & flea/tick preventatives.

Many of the animals we have rescued are either medical cases or special needs (and our vet bills reflect this) and often are the dogs or cats that no one else will take. Our group does auctions, raffles, dog washes, adoption events and many other fundraisers to fund the rescue. With additional financial assistance, we hope to acquire property to place a small climate controlled facility to help save additional dogs & cats or have a safe haven for those emergencies that often arise.

Bailey’s Way Rescue’s focus is to bring people & dogs or cats together to enrich each other’s lives. We do home and vet checks after adoption & foster applications with background checks for all potential adopters and fosters. It is our goal to be sure the best possible home is found for the dog or cat and the right animal for the adopter or foster. Please help us to continue the great work that we so proudly do!
