Twisted Oaks Rescue

Keeping pets and people together


Jessie Shekels

Hey y’all, I am so happy you stopped by to learn more about Twisted Oaks and the Shekels family. I am Jessie a proud mamma, wife, veteran and passionate pet advocate. My family owns a private rescue in Keystone Heights, FL. 

Our mission of "keeping pets and people together" is based on 15 years of animal rescue and my involvement with in the Lake Area pet community. My experiences demonstrate community resources and pet education are in high demand. They are needed to keep pet families together. As a community pet advocate, I strive to present answers to our pet problems. Not just repeat or patch problems. 

We have two parts to our mission. First, our pet pantry where we have fed hundreds of animals through our pet food drops. This is a donations based program and we recently hit 5 tons of food distribution! That’s right 10,000 pounds of pet feed was donated to the Lake Area Community! Second part of our mission is animal rescue. This encompasses everything from saving animals from situations where homelessness, neglect or abuse exist. All the way to pet education regarding wellness & nutrition, pet socialization and adopting a rescue animal. 

As we continue to grow so will our concepts and projects. We are always looking for other passionate pet lovers out there that want to make a difference. If you believe in speaking up for those that need help most.....Join our crusade.
