Best Friends Animal Society Invests in Lifesaving Work of TLC PetSnip, Inc.

Grant of $55,000 will provide 1000 spay/neuter surgeries to at risk animals

Lakeland, FL — TLC PetSnip, Inc. announced it has been awarded a $55,000 grant from Best Friends Animals Society and The Rachel Ray Foundation to support spay/neuter services for at risk dogs and cats in Polk County.

Polk County Animal Control has the highest euthanasia rate and lowest adoption rate in Florida.  This grant funding specifically targets animals that are most at risk for euthanasia due to breed, age or medical need. The funding will be used to encourage rescue groups from across the state to take dogs and cats from this shelter for future adoption through their rescue group.

Emily Lorenzano, Executive Director of TLC PetSnip, Inc. says, “We are so honored to be the recipients of this grant from Best Friends Animal Society.  This grant funding will allow TLC PetSnip to make a large-scale impact on the euthanasia rate in Polk County.  We are looking forward to the opportunity to work with rescue partners and pulling at-risk dogs and cats to help them find loving homes.”

TLC PetSnip, Inc. offers affordable preventative and wellness services, in conjunction with spay neuter services, and strives to provide high-quality care at an affordable cost. TLC PetSnip, Inc. has three locations to serve residents in Polk, Hillsborough and Marion Counties.  All three locations will be utilized as surgical sites for dogs and cats that originate from Polk County Animal Control. TLC PetSnip will be opening their fourth location in early 2020 in Pasco County and that location will also used to provide spay/neuter services for animals from Polk County.
