Seminole County Animal Services: Sponsor a Pet
We used the grant money to spay and neuter several of our adoptable dogs so that they would be more adoptable to a person coming in and not wanting to wait. We also purchased flea and tick prevention due to an outbreak of ticks here in Florida. We have also been able to run adoption specials lowering the adoption fees on our dogs.
It made the pets more quickly adoptable and more comfortable being flea- and tick-free. Plus a spayed or neutered dog has a lower adoption fee because the surgery has already been performed using donations.
This grant was sent in for Benny. Benny had been at the shelter for exactly 13 months before he was adopted. He had one eye smaller than the other and was just a plain older (8 years) pit bull. But Benny was sweet and quiet. We had him neutered and finally his fur-ever home came and adopted him, giving him the great life he deserved. Here is handsome Benny's photo.
