Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
This is TaDa, a little English Bull Dog from a puppy mill. When we rescued her, she was completely covered with mange and had absolutely no fur, was covered in oozing sores. Thanks to daily medication and baths, she is on the way to a full recovery.
The Humane Society of Citrus County FL Inc is a non-profit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization in Citrus County, Florida. We are a small no–kill shelter currently housing over 35 dogs and cats in our facility. We recently celebrated our first year in operation. Our adoptable animals are posted on www.petfinder.com and at our websites, www.humanesocietycitrus.com and www.roomforonemore.net .
Because of our strong belief in the human-animal bond, we work very hard to match pets and potential pet parents, screening applicants with references and home checks. The animal's needs and the family's needs are considered very carefully, so each companion animal can become an integral member of its new family. Like other animal welfare groups, finding a "forever home" for each animal is our goal. We require a signed adoption contract and any animal that cannot fit into its new home successfully is required to be returned to our care, not passed off.
All companion animals that come to the Humane Society are treated with the care and respect they deserve. Each is spayed or neutered and given appropriate inocculations before adoption. Dogs are tested for heartworm and cats for feline leukemia. All are available for adoption into strictly approved homes and home visits are a standard procedure for us. Vet references are required and are checked as standard procedure. Home visits are completed whenever possible prior to adoption to be certain the home is suitable.
Maintaining our rescue's day-to-day operations and meeting the medical needs of the many pets we rescue is becoming increasingly difficult. While donations are down, expenditures to keep our doors open are ever increasing. We will do whatever it takes to continue our Mission and with your help, we can save the lives of many more loving pets.
Homeless animals seem to come in an unending flow. Animals, the silent victims of the current times, are frequently considered disposable property and are “dumped off” at our facility during the night. More are brought in to our facility, Paws-itively Pets, during open hours, however we must refuse a large number of them (at least for now) due to space, money and staff limitations.
