Escambia & Santa Rosa County Animal Shelters need your support!
Doesn't it break your heart to go to the Animal Shelter? You see (and hear!) those sad, sweet pets behind the bars? I recently went to see just how many and what kind of animals are in need of homes in the Pensacola area. There are over 50 pets in Escambia & Santa Rosa County shelters waiting to be adopted right now.
Here are 5 ways you can help your local Animal Shelter:
1. Click to help Escambia County Animal Shelter get a Grant!
Easily vote on this website (no registration of any kind required) for any local Animal Shelter to receive grants up to $100,000. Voting began January 9, 2012 and continues through March 18, 2012- you are able to vote once a day! Atleast vote right now for Escambia County.
You can also vote for Santa Rosa County through the link above- just search and choose Santa Rosa.
2. Adopt a Pet
It is significantly less expensive to adopt a pet from your local animal shelter than it is to purchase from a breeder or pet store. The adoptions typically cost under $50 and include a voucher for a discounted (required) spay/ neuter.
