Mission Statement

Highlands County Action for Animals exists to provide a centralized resource for issues concerning animals in Highlands County, Florida, as well as to promote compassion towards all animals.

This website is dedicated to:

  • Providing information to help reduce pet overpopulation by encouraging the spaying and neutering of companion and feral animals.
  • Promoting the adoption of shelter pets in part by occasionally placing ads in local newspapers that point to this website's Adopt A Pet page, which provides links to local adoption organizations.
  • Alleviating the conditions that lead to pet abandonment through the listing of pet-friendly rental housing and pertinent links to information for renters, rental managers, and landlords.
  • Providing links to resources dealing with pets, animal welfare / animal rights, and wildlife.
