What we aim to solve

The percentage of animals euthanized in our county exceeds most counties in the state of Florida. We have no spay/neuter laws. We have no ordinances to encourage tagging/chipping/registering your pets. Trap/Neuter/Return is against leash law. People are unaware of the poor condition of our local shelter.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our team works to reduce the euthanasia numbers at our local shelter. We are in the top tier of all Florida shelters when it comes to our kill rate. Over 6000 animals are entering our shelter every year with over 4000 being put down. Our county lacks involvement and education regarding spay and neuter. We also need more pets to be registered, by creating an ordinance for this, and tagged and/or microchipped. The return to owner rate is less than 2%.

We will open a low cost clinic in our county that will serve the hundreds of thousands of companion animal owners as well as community cat caregivers. We push for amendments to ordinances to allow for trap/neuter/return and registration of pets. We educate at all adoption and county events. We go into schools and educate children about spay/neuter needs and what they can do to save lives.

Our team consist of over 50 volunteers with an incredible passion to save the lives of animals by creating a healthy environment for them and educating the future animal advocates. We apply for grants to get more funding to fix as many animals as possible at other low cost clinics hours away. We have a great network of resources within the city, county, and state that support us and encourage us to push the boundaries.

We will see the impact via the monthly statistics reports we receive every month from the local animal shelter. Once we see numbers going down, we will know we are making a difference.

We have sent over 400 animals to be altered within the past 8 months. We have created and passed an amendment to the leash law ordinance to allow for community cats inside city limits. We have educated thousands at local events. Next we'll be opening a low cost clinic and transporting animals from all over to get to these services.
