Center for Animal Advocacy visits SPCA of Central Florida

On Friday, the Center for Animal Advocacy, represented by Casey Taylor, Kim Radcliffe, and Peggy Hoyt, visited with Paul McGlone (and many other staff members and volunteers) at the SPCA of Central Florida.  We were given a tour of the facilities and learned lots about the new improvements they are making.  The cats are going to have a new space where they can get to an outside area and enjoy the sunshine.  Of course, there were tons of cats, kittens, dogs and puppies we would have loved to take home!  The SPCA of Central Florida is doing a great job of finding homes for its animals--but they get approximately 40 surrenders each day.  That's just too many people giving up their beloved pets.  All of the pets at the Orlando SPCA are owned - they aren't strays. 

The Center for Animal Advocacy also learned about many of the programs offered by the Orlando SPCA including their Shelter Friends Summer Camp--a week long camp for both 3rd to 5th graders and another for middle schoolers.  At the camp, kids will learn all about the animals at the shelter and how to take care of them.   We are hoping to participate as a speaker.

Support your local Central Florida SPCA and do your part, "until there are none, adopt one!"

For more information on how you can get involved with the Central Florida SPCA, visit their website or attend one of their Community Classes including Cats 411, Puppy Class, Pit Bull Class, Dog Behavior Workshop, and Obedience courses.
