Alachua County Humane Society
To end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable companion animals in North Central Florida.
The single largest obstacle to the no-kill movement in North Central Florida is a lack of capacity for additional spay/neuter surgeries. Your investment in Operation Petsnip at the Alachua County Humane Society will allow our surgical suite to expand and our capacity for surgeries to double from 5,000 to 10,000 surgeries annually! This expansion will improve access to low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter surgeries for low-income pet owners thus reducing the number of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens coming into the shelter system. Furthermore, increased capacity will ensure dogs and cats in our local rescues are sterilized and up for adoption as quickly as possible. With your support, no pet will be euthanized for lack of space in our county shelter.
