Seminole County Animal Services: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The donations we have gotten from the Sponsor A Pet Program have been and will be used to spay and neuter some of our shelter cats. Typically an adopter pays for the spay or neuter of the cat they choose when they adopt. But we find that if some of the cats are already spayed or neutered and the adopter is allowed to adopt and take the cat home that day that it will give some cats the edge they need to get adopted. Our county shelter is not budgeted to pre-spay or neuter animals available for adoption, so this grant will help us to do this and get some cats adopted that may not have been.
It will help some of the cats we have get adopted quicker, so they can start their new lives in a home rather that spending more time at the shelter.
How many pets did this grant help?
A $90 grant will neuter three male cats or two female cats with $10 left over.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Andy is a really friendly grey tiger cat that has just passed his two-month anniversary at the shelter. He is an awesome cat and gets along well with other cats but still he wasn’t adopted. Andy and two of his cat friends, Junior and Django, will be neutered using the grant money.
