WE HAVE A NEW LOGO!!!
Ayla’s Acres collaborated for months with faculty and students at Flagler College to develop a new logo and tagline for its rescue operations.
After lots of meetings, ideas, and conversations we chose a classic, friendly passenger van with lots of windows. Flagler student Sierra Van Natter designed it. We see a classic front view with animals—horse, chicken, dog, and cat—on their way to safety and security. (Yes, we know they wouldn’t all really fit!)
“I feel that the final design incorporates all aspects and changes that the organization wanted to make to their logo,” Sierra said. We love it and we believe that you will too!
We’re getting all A’s! Ayla’s Acres’ name has always had the first letter of the alphabet, repeated. That’s how we rolled with our new slogan as well: AID. ADOPT. ADVOCATE.
Those three words capture our primary goals, commitments, and services to animals and to the community. Thanks to the Flagler College
Graphic Design Program for summarizing our mission so clearly.
Ayla's Acres New Thriftique
THE THRIFTIQUE IS MOVING IN APRIL5>
Trucks are rolling and we’re on our way! Ayla’s Acres Awesome Volunteers are relocating the Ayla’s Acres Thriftique. It is 1.7 miles from the current King Street location, just across the Bridge of Lions at 409-413 Anastasia Boulevard/A1A South. Mellow Mushroom, a familiar landmark, is right across the street. The store will be easy to spot in the warm yellow building with white trim and lots of windows.
Ayla’s Acres Thriftique will combine its showroom with adjacent warehouse space. That means that if a customer wants that perfect thing that’s not on the showroom floor, one of our volunteers can check if it is available in the warehouse and retrieve it right away. We can’t wait to
serve our loyal customers—and our new customers—at this great new location!
The new site will open at the end of April. Stay tuned for the exact opening date by following us on Facebook and Instagram (links below).

DO YOU LOVE ANIMALS? LOOKING FOR A WAY TO GET INVOLVED? WE'RE HIRING!
We have several volunteer opportunities in our new thrift store location at 413 Anastasia Blvd. We're looking for help in three areas of our store: assisting guests, cashier, and warehouse help.

Peter's Friends Site Plan
PETER'S FRIENDS ANIMAL RESOURCE CENTER ONE STEP CLOSER TO REALITY
Big news! Peter’s Friends Animal Resource Center will break ground in Spring 2021. St. Johns County approved a special use permit for the
adoption center and veterinary clinic. We are waiting for the final permits and then we can start to build! The engineering is completed, site plans are ready, soil samples have been gathered, and the archaeological investigation is done.
Peter’s Friends will provide a warm, noninstitutional, clean, safe, loving environment for adoptable dogs and cats until they find their
forever homes. This includes shelter, food, and interaction between people and the animals. It will also provide an onsite veterinary clinic with
no- or low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination programs. Read more about our new shelter including it's location, visit Peter's Friends page.
