​One stop closer to a forever home

​​Pit Stop Pit Bull Rescue Transport

It's 2016 and now #TeamPitStop wants to help our friends at K&C Pet Rescue with an Extreme Shelter Makeover of their own.  K & C Pet Rescue & Adoption Society is a non-profit, no-kill shelter. They have serviced Jacksonville and the surrounding Northeast Florida area since 1977. K&C is located in a rural area and is run by a small group of volunteers dedicated to helping homeless animals.  They currently provide sanctuary to well over 100 animals including dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, pigs, horses, donkeys, turkeys, water buffalo and an alpaca.  As you can imagine it takes thousands of dollars just to feed and vet these animals.  Our goal is to help them get the much needed repairs to the shelter done and get everything ready for winter.

In the spring of 2014, Pit Stop Pit Bull Rescue Transport in partnership with Friends of Clay County Animals set out to make a difference at the Clay County Animal Care and Control Shelter in Greencove Springs, Florida.


Our group along with 80 volunteers spent two full weekends transforming the shelter into one amazing place.  The teams cleaned, scrubbed, and organized the entire facility.  


Under the leadership of our design master Cynthia we hatched a plan to utilize bright colors in the kennel areas to bring out the beautiful pets that were housed in them.   The bathroom was turned into a rubber ducky themed doggie salon with shiny bubbles.  Offices were color coordinated to look like the inside of a model home decorated with pictures of shelter animals and a seating and picture area for new adoptees.  


Outside of the facility we landscaped the shelter, added new fenced play areas for the dogs, and finally gave the shelter the new signage they deserved. 


This project would not have been possible without the generous donations of time, money, supplies, talents, and heart of the entire volunteer team.
