Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. d/b/a YOUR Humane Society SPCA: GF Pet Products Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

A big THANK YOU to the Petfinder Foundation and GF Pet Products for their donation of really "cool" cooling products to help keep our shelter's dogs comfortable in Florida's climate! Even in October it is still HOT!

Our adult pooches such as Amelia and Moochie are happy to be modelling their cooling bands and vests while puppies Slipknot and Moonshine are also using their ice bowls and collapsible water bottles/bowls after a fun time playing and socializing at our shelter.

We'll be able to continue using these on campus and at multiple off-site adoption events for many of our adoptable dogs. They can enjoy cool water and stay refreshed while on our pack walks at local venues. Many thanks again for your continued support of our work!

How many pets did this grant help?

For the remainder of 2022 when we received this grant, we anticipate it helping approximately 36 more dogs and puppies.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Slipknot, a sweetheart of a puppy (first and second photos), was adopted together with his brother Sabbath soon after we took these photos of him using his GF Pet Product cooling vest and collapsible water bottle after a good time playing hard, as puppies do.

Our temps easily reach the upper 80s in mid-October here in Central Florida, so any ways to keep our dogs and puppies hydrated and prevent them from overheating are much appreciated.
