December 2017 Appeal

Dear Friends,

It is that special time of year when we hold our loved ones a little tighter, count our blessings and celebrate the meaning of the season by reaching out to those less fortunate. For many of us, our holiday festivities often include our treasured companion animals, as they so enrich our lives with unconditional love & loyalty – all year round.

While you’re busy making holiday preparations, we hope you will take some time to remember the many cats and dogs without good homes or caring families to share their love. “Jodi”, “Tina”, “Seymour”, “Loretta”, “Garfield” (pictured on the cover) are just six of the over 100 canines and felines currently being cared for by our shelter while they await adoption. FLSPCA is currently providing a sanctuary for ten homeless equines as well. It would be just wonderful if all our orphan animals could find forever homes for the holidays. Unfortunately, many will still need the protective care the Shelter provides — all through the season.

Over this past year, private contributions to the FLSPCA have saved the lives of animals, reduced animal suffering, provided care for pets of financially struggling families and supported community education. In 2017, we responded to two large-scale animal rescues (104 puppies involved in a motor vehicle accident on I-86 and 64 cats whose home was being condemned). The Shelter is not a government entity. Our operating budget is funded primarily by private donations. Gifts help sustain orphan animal care, subsidized spay/neuter, humane education, adoption, animal wellness, canine training and outreach programs which prevent cruelty. These services directly help needy animals and preserve & strengthen the human-companion animal bond. Your gift stays in our region and benefits your neighbors and community animals.

On behalf of the animals and people we help, thank you and may you have a very happy holiday season.
