SPCA Florida Receives Walmart Community Grant

Lakeland FL – SPCA Florida, a nonprofit 501c3 rescue organization received grant funds for $5,000 from Walmart Community Grants and Facility #5035. The funds from Walmart Community Giving will allow SPCA Florida to continue to have an impact on the animal overpopulation in Polk County.

Shelters such as SPCA Florida work tirelessly every day to address the pet overpopulation problem and they need the communities help. Along with your support, Walmart Community Grants will help change the outlook for thousands of Polk County animals.

Grants like this will save the lives of adoptable, loving cats and dogs who would otherwise not have a chance at life. In conjunction with the No Kill Polk County Movement, SPCA Florida, in partnership with Polk County Animal Control, are striving to save more animal lives, giving every pet a chance for a responsible loving home.
