Pasco Animal Services Receives Florida Animal Friend Grant

Pasco County Animal Services (PCAS) is proud to share that it has been awarded a $25,000 grant from Florida Animal Friend that will be used for trap, neuter, vaccinate and return (TNVR) efforts to reduce cat overpopulation in the Holiday area.

“This generous grant makes proactive programs like TNVR possible, allowing us to spay and neuter roughly 800 stray and feral cats,” said PCAS Director Mike Shumate. “PCAS is excited to assist our Holiday neighbors with their community cat needs, and grateful to Florida Animal Friend for their support in helping reduce pet overpopulation.”

Grant funding comes from sales and annual renewals of the Florida Animal Friend Spay and Neuter specialty license plate.     This is the second grant PCAS has received from Florida Animal Friend.  The first, awarded in 2017, was used for TNVR efforts in the Zephyrhills area.
