The Lee County Animal Care Trust Fund was established in 2002 to provide specialized care and services to stray domestic animals of Lee County that may be outside of our usual budget constraints. In 2016 we spent almost $100,000 for major surgeries, consultations and medical care outside of the ability of our veterinary staff. Because of the Animal Care Trust Fund and the care that we were able to provide, over 300 animals were reunited with their owners or able to be adopted into loving homes.
Some of the programs the fund was established to assist include:
Life-saving and emergency medical care for found animals
Assistance in the care and placement of abused and neglected animals in the care of Lee County Animal Services
Disaster response for animals
Donations of any amount are welcome. All donations are tax-deductible in accordance with Internal Revenue Code Section 170-c (1). All funds are reserved by the Trust exclusively for the needs of the animals in our community. If you wish to designate your gift for a specific purpose, please let us know when you make your donation.
Ollie is one of our Animal Care Trust Fund Recipients. He came to LCDAS in the latter stages of starvation. His body score was a 1 out of 10. Thank you to the staff at both Specialized Veterinary Services and Lee County Domestic Animal Services, Ollie was nursed back to health and is now the healthy, tail-wagging boy you see below and living with his new family.
