More Info


In 2017, through Southeastern Guide Dogs, we became a Puppy Raiser for the “Future Superhero”  9 week old Yellow Labrador, Jennings —a pure bundle of joy. During the 11 short months of fostering Jenni and seeing her demeanor change while training to become a guide dog for the blind, we knew she was something special. After sending Jenni off to “college”, we knew there was more that we had to do for people with disabilities and animals in general, here locally. Our family received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the President, for our countless amount of volunteer hours.

After months and months of researching, we noticed there was nothing, here locally, in Hernando County for animals. This is when we decided to start our own family owned nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization called, Animalade, and incorporate a high-end thrift store for the cause as well, called Thrifty Dog Thrift Store. Since we opened our doors, in January of 2018, we have had nothing but positive feedback from the community. Our mission is to advocate for animals through community education, collective volunteers, and monetary support -- to include but not to limit to rescue organizations, animal shelters, and therapy/service animals. Its people like you that have helped us impact the lives of animals. Our fight has just begun and we look forward to what the future has to offer.

We are currently renting a 7,000 sq. ft. building and we are busting out of the seams. Your donation will help us reach our future goals: 

  • Construct a 10,000+ sq ft facility by 2021
  • Funding the new facility, including clearing the land
  • Include a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic and doggie daycare
  • Assisting vet services, keep animal care costs down, and assist with providing medical care for nonprofit rescue organizations  

We want to make a difference and it begins with our community support. If you would like more information please email us, call us (352)701-1107, and/or visit our website Thank you for your time and for helping make a difference.

Paws up,
