Sunny Side Up Rescue

“Animals do speak, but only to those that know how to listen.”

Orhan Pamuk

Sunny Side Up | Pet Rescue Florida is located in Port St. Lucie. We’re 100% volunteer operated and funded solely through donations. All animals in need are welcome here, although it’s primarily dogs and horses currently. While continuing our broad scope of animals that are rescued, we have begun to take in more at risk equines. We primarily focus on the elderly, starved, and abused horses within the slaughter pipeline, those with less of a chance of being saved due to their condition.

We offer sanctuary for life to animals that are not adoptable for whatever reason, as well as rehabilitating and adopting out ones that just require a second chance.

Our belief is it takes a community to help these animals have their best chance at living in a healthy, loving forever home. Sunny Side Up Rescue (SSUR) | Pet Rescue Florida works hand in hand with other rescues in the area as well as others across the country to save as many lives as possible.

Rescue is a Lifestyle.

It is not a hobby. It is not a passing fad.

You live it … breathe it … 24/7. Your purpose for living is to change the life of a shelter pet …one at a time.


Give a needy pet a forever, loving home.

Saved from the Holding Pens!

Dolly’s (aka 007) short story is that she was sold to a “kill buyer” to be sent to slaughter. She is a strong working horse that was in good shape, only 14 years old, and was carrying a baby.  She was most likely used to work ranches. The owners felt they didn’t need her anymore and sought to make a quick easy buck. Dolly’s rescue costs, just to get her here safe, was about $2600. She was in good condition so no major vet issues as of now. Not all are that lucky. Many will get sick in the pens or are severely emaciated.

Please join us to help raise awareness about this horrible tragedy that continues everyday. With help we can save many of these innocent lives from absolute death.

Read about 007’s story and find out how you can help others like her.
