Lee County Domestic Animal Services is excited to launch our 2017 campaign
'Imagine the Pawsibilities' sponsored by the Petco Foundation.
The Petco Foundation believes that every animal deserves the best life. Since 1999, they've invested more than $157 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. This lifesaving impact grant will enable Animal Services to reach the following goals throughout the year:
1. Reunite more pets with owners
2. Increase pet adoptions
3. Educate the public on responsible pet ownership
4. Increase our foster and volunteer network
Each month we will focus on an important topic that relates to one of our goals.
