Tom's Supported Nonprofits

Safe Animal Shelter

Safe Animal Shelter became Clay County’s first no-kill shelter in 1991 to provide housing for more homeless pets in the community until they could find a forever home. Our nonprofit organization works to reduce the number of cats and dogs euthanized in Clay County, Duval County, Northeast Florida and the surrounding areas. We envision a community in which all companion animals have loving homes and are treated with compassion and respect. To learn more, visit
