This fund helps in the battle against pet overpopulation. It provides the community with low-cost and free spay and neuter days throughout the year. Prevention is most important to solving the pet overpopulation problem.
Often, we receive animals that have been abused. Many of these pets will be frightened and hover at the back of the kennel, in fear of all who pass by.
Sadly, we also receive animals that have been neglected, tortured, burned and battered. We have found that with proper medical attention, nurturing and care, these animals are able to overcome their well-founded fear and become wonderful companions.
In fact, our experience proves that with proper care these animals become some of the most adoptable and loyal pets. Medical and social intervention provides a new opportunity to these unfortunate and helpless victims.
Also, we frequently receive animals that require surgery or special medical care that is outside our expertise. Without funding for surgery to repair a broken limb, or correct a painful, home "ear-crop job", these animals cannot be adopted.
PACC has established this special medical fund to cover the cost of care for animals with these extraordinary needs.
Contributing to the Adoption Fund allows the Animal Care Center to offer special discounts to encourage interested owners to adopt some of the difficult to place pets.
OUTREACH and EDUCATION FUND:
PACC has strong partnerships with local schools. It allows staff and volunteers to provide classroom instruction and training in many elementary, middle and junior high schools throughout the community. Your donation provides the sole source of funding for this. Your donations pay for demonstration supplies and materials which enhance the learning process for the students.
This fund helps staff make quality-of-life improvements to kennels and service areas. Keeping the facility sanitary and maintaining the operation can exhaust the budget for maintenance and operations. Donations made to this fund help staff provide advanced disease-control measures, improved bedding for pets and some amenities to comfort the animals.
GOODS and SERVICES:
The shelter always needs new or gently used bedding, crates and blankets. Donations of food, treats and cat accessories are always welcome.
