We work closely with animal services to transport adoptable animals to offsite adoption events. We sponsor the adoption fees, advertise the events, and assist with finding homeless animals new homes.
We partner with Humanitarians of Florida to bring low cost spay and neuter services to Citrus County residents.
We sponsor an ongoing adoption promotion "Save a Senior Saturday" where we pay the adoption fees of senior cats and dogs every Saturday. We purchased a dental machine for animal services veterinary staff to use to clean the teeth of older animals.
We pay for surgeries and medical care beyond what animal services can provide. This may mean fostering a dog for surgery and rehabilitation, paying for extensive dental procedures, x-rays, or other medical care not provided at the animal shelter.
We pay for lifesaving Heartworm treatment for shelter animals. The treatment may be the fast-kill method or slow-kill depending upon the recommendation of the veterinarian.
We support the kennel enrichment programs of animal services to keep dogs and cats mentally and physically healthy while they are waiting for adoption. This comes in the form of supporting the Playing for Life program as well as toys and equipment for play yards and kennels.
Whether it's a commercial washer and dryer so the animals have clean bedding, anesthesia machines and other medical equipment, freezers for Kongs, fences for play yards, or any other item for the betterment of the animals -- CCFAP will try to meet the needs.
At just six months old Petey was found with a severely broken leg. Not just broke but turned in the wrong direction. It was broken in the growth plate and required a tricky surgery but the orthopedic fixed it and saved his leg. He was adopted and moved to Orlando to be with his new family.
Nellie was a tethered and attacked by another dog. Her foot was broken in four places. She did not receive medical care timely and was left to suffer. She was so flea infested that when she was given a Capstar her fawn colored coat turned black with all the fleas exiting her skin. The surgeon saved her foot and she is adopted and living with her new family.
Suzy Sweet Pea arrived at the shelter with broken bones after being hit by a car. Without organizations like CCFAP to take care of her medical needs, Suzy may have been put to sleep because her needs were more than animal services can provide. Thanks to donations of a caring community we were able to help her. She is living her happily ever after with a wonderful family and a canine sister.
Zander was a precious little puppy that was beaten by his owner. Thankfully, someone who knew of it brought Zander to the vet and the owner was later arrested. Zander was placed in a foster home and CCFAP ensured he had the medical care he needed. Zander was later adopted by one of the vet techs that cared for him at the vet office.
Tyson arrived at the shelter with the largest tumor we've ever seen! CCFAP provided his medical care to remove it and we helped him get to a no-kill rescue where he was later adopted. The tumor was so heavy we were amazed at how well he coped with it and what an amazing, happy attitude he had.
The sad eyes are gone and caster is all smiles now. Caster was at the shelter for awhile until we discovered how badly he needed emergency oral surgery. CCFAP took care of his medical expenses so he could have 8 impacted teeth and part of a necrotic jaw bone removed. He was probably in pain for many years. Caster is now living his happily ever after with a wonderful new family who loves him dearly.
Your support and contributions will enable us to help on a moments notice when the sick or injured arrive at the shelter. Your generous donations will ensure the funds are there when the emergency cases come in. Nobody should have to wait in pain while we try to gather funds to treat them.
