Save-A-Lot Saves the Day

Save-A-Lot Donation

We would like to say a big thank you to the Port Charlotte Save-A-Lot for their generous donation! They recently held a wine tasting at their store and asked customers for monetary donations to benefit the Suncoast Humane Society. After the event was over, Save-A-Lot used the monetary donations to buy pet food from their store as well as other items from our Wishlist. Thanks again Port Charlotte Save-A-Lot, we appreciate your support!

Celebrating 5,000 Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Ellie 20151949B

We are proud to announce that our Preventive Health Care Clinic has performed its 5,000th spay/neuter surgery! Our clinic, which is located inside our animal care facility, performs spay and neuter surgeries for cat and dog owners of any income level. By offering affordable services, it encourages everyone, regardless of income, to properly care for their pets.

Executive Director Phil Snyder states, “We hope to see a continued increase in the number of animals spayed or neutered through our clinic’s services, and an eventual overall reduction of animal surrenders to our facility. This begins with an increase of the overall ratio of altered pets to unaltered pets coming into our care.” Snyder adds, “Spay/neuter of companion animals is the primary focus of our No Birth campaign, the logical solution to lowering euthanasia rates at open admission animal shelters.”

We believe that spaying and neutering your pets is a necessary requirement for the effective control of the homeless animal population. It also is beneficial to animal health and behavior. Having your pet spayed or neutered is an essential component of responsible pet ownership.

Our Preventive Health Care Clinic services are by “appointment only”. For more information, pricing, or to schedule an appointment for your pet, please call  941-474-7884 Tuesday through Saturday.

Holiday giving trees help pets in need

Giving Tree Donations

We would like to thank all of those who donated pet food, toys, cleaning supplies, and much more to our Giving Trees during the holiday season! Your generosity not only helped the homeless pets in our care but also helped support the pets of struggling families in our community. All donations of pet food went to our Pet Pantry program, which helps financially struggling families with pets by temporarily providing them with free pet food. Thanks again for bringing joy to homeless pets in need!

Birthday donations to benefit homeless pets

Iris - Donations from 11th Birthday

Iris recently turned 11 years old and had a party to celebrate her special day. Instead of asking her friends to bring gifts for her, she had a special request. She told her family and friends that all she wanted for her birthday was to be able to bring donations to the homeless pets of Suncoast Humane Society. She asked them to bring things like pet food, chew toys, and much more from our Wish List. Thank you for thinking of us, Iris! Our adoptable pets would like to wish you a very Happy (belated) Birthday 🙂

New Year, New Look!

Angel the 1 year old Papillon/Lhasa Apso mix came to us with severely matted fur. As you can see from his before photos below, his fur had grown to such an unmanageable, matted length that he could hardly even see.

Thanks to our awesome volunteer Judy, Angel now has a fresh new cut just in time for the New Year. That’s not all though! After getting his new look, Angel wasn’t available for long before his new mom Linda found him. It’s safe to say that he is now enjoying the life he’s always dreamed of! You can see his amazing transformation below:

We can’t stress enough how crucial it is for regular and frequent grooming. Brushing, especially, is absolutely necessary to not only prevent mats but to keep your pet’s coat and skin healthy. Thank you again Judy, for always going above and beyond to help the homeless animals in our care!
