Pasco County Animal Services Receives Grant for SNIP Program

Florida Animal Friend, Inc awards $25,000 to help put an end to pet overpopulation

Pasco County Animal Services (PCAS) has been awarded $25,000 by Florida Animal Friend, Inc. This grant will help fund Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return (TNVR) in the Zephyrhills area where feral and community cat populations are high. PCAS submitted the grant proposal in support of the Spay/Neuter in Pasco (SNIP) program back in April and were notified of its approval on August 7, 2017.

 Florida Animal Friend, Inc is an animal welfare organization whose mission is to help end pet overpopulation by providing funding for grants through the sale of specialty license plates. PCAS is honored to be a recipient of this year’s grant. This money will help reduction of unsterilized feral and community cats residing in Zephyrhills which will help lower the shelter’s cat intake and decrease cat euthanasia while increasing the shelters live release rate.

Please contact the PCAS for more information on the new SNIP Program, benefits of TNVR or the Florida Animal Friend, Inc. Spay/Neuter License Plate Program.
