Rescue Animals In Need Inc. - Fort Myers Pet Shelter

Rescue Animals in Need (RAIN) is a 501c3 no-kill animal rescue dedicated to reducing the number of homeless pets through public education and mandatory veterinary services and spay/neuter of all of our rescue animals. RAIN takes in animals from abuse situations, shelters that euthanize, and owner surrenders. RAIN does not turn away based on age, breed, or medical costs. RAIN is committed to making a difference in the lives of pets in need and the forever families they find placement with. RAIN has sponsored charity events, fundraisers, educational seminars, and more; to raise awareness to the plight of homeless animals and the importance of adopting pets. RAIN was founded in October 2010 by a dedicated group of volunteers and fosters who give up their time and money on a daily basis to help the organization save pets in need of forever homes. RAIN takes in cats, dogs, and bunnies and is not breed specific, taking in a range of ages and breeds on an annual basis. Over the last 10 years RAIN has placed over 1400 animals into loving forever homes.

Adoption Process

All adoptions require an application to be completed for the pet. Once your application is received, please give us 2 business days before calling or emailing for an update. We get that everyone is excited but we are ALL volunteers that work jobs, have our own pets, and families. We promise we will respond! Once your application is reviewed you will receive an email with questions that we need answered. While we don’t need a novel, one-word answers are not always the best. Once you have responded to the questionnaire, we will check your references and contact you to set up a time for your home visit if required. All of our adoptions require a signed contract and a non-refundable fee. This makes clear the policies of the rescue for adoption and helps us care for the animals we have looking for homes within our rescue. You will also need to show a government issued photo ID with your address at the time of adoption. Adoption fees must be paid in Cash or Check ONLY. Please note that if you are renting, you will need to provide a letter from your Landlord or Property Manager, signed with their contact information, stating that you may have the RAIN pet in your home (address noted in the letter) as well as any other additional pets that may already be in the home. This is mandatory for all renters. RAIN does not take phones calls or emails as permission to have a pet.
