Lakeland FL - SPCA Florida, a nonprofit 501c3 rescue organization received grant funds for $1,000 from the PEDIGREE Foundation. The grant will provide general support, such as spay and neuter, vaccines, and daily provisions for canines. The PEDIGREE Foundation believes that every adoptable shelter dog deserves a forever home. The PEDIGREE Foundation Grant will save the lives of adoptable, loving 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 canine lives this year.
PEDIGREE Foundation is working to find a solution to the problem of the millions of homeless dogs in this country. Through the Pedigree grant programs, we support organizations, such as SPCA Florida, that save the lives of dogs that would otherwise be lost.
Each year in North America, millions of pets enter shelters and almost half of them are euthanized. Shelters such as SPCA Florida work tirelessly every day to address the pet overpopulation problem and they need help. Along with your support, PEDIGREE Foundation provides much-needed financial assistance to change the outlook for thousands of dogs, until every dog has a home.
The Foundation was established in 2008 by dog lovers with a passionate belief that every dog deserves a loving home. PEDIGREE Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation that supports shelters and rescue organizations, as well as encouraging people to ADOPT, VOLUNTEER, and DONATE. SPCA Florida is grateful for their lifesaving support of Polk County’s homeless animals.
