ENGLEWOOD, Fla. — Eighty-eight animals are “Home for the Holidays” this December thanks to Suncoast Humane Society’s holiday-themed adoption promotion. This exceeded their goal of 75 animals adopted.
Tiffany was one such lucky pup to find her new home. This sweet 11-year-old senior Jack Russell Terrier was brought to Suncoast Humane Society when the only owner she ever knew passed away. In need of dental work, Tiffany became part of our Shelter Angel program, a donor-supported program designed to provide medical funds for the immediate needs of animals in Suncoast’s care.
Tiffany’s dental work was scheduled when Robert came in to meet her. He agreed to take her to her appointments and follow up with us. Robert reports that Tiffany is healing well, eating well and has become a loving companion for him.
Another special adoption is Trudy’s story. On Giving Tuesday, Suncoast Humane Society featured “A day in the life of Trudy: A shelter dog” on their Facebook page and emails to supporters. The story of a neglected, ignored 5-year-old pit bull mix in need of emergency surgery, medical treatment, socialization and just plain old fashioned love. Trudy spent four months with us after transferring from another shelter but found her perfect forever home with a family willing to look past her overused teats, and medical needs. She is now the center of attention with kids to play with and the family bed to hang out on!
Your humane society’s annual “Home for the Holidays” adoption special featured uniquely reduced adoption fees Dec. 1st through the 23rd. Adoption fees during this special month-long event are $10, plus the day of the month. This is done to encourage adopters to adopt early in the month insuring the new pet has time to adjust to the new home before too much holiday chaos begins.
Suncoast Humane Society has been serving animals and people since 1971. Founded as Englewood Animal Aid Society, the organization’s services and programs were soon challenged to meet the demands placed on them by the pet over-population crises.
Expansions to their facility in Englewood during the 1980s and 1990s helped the Society to more effectively provide for a growing service area. To reflect the changes, the organization became Suncoast Humane Society. Today their service area includes Charlotte County, most of Sarasota County, and the Boca Grande portion of Lee County, a total of over 450 square miles.
