Pets for the Elderly
The Suncoast Humane Society has been selected as a new shelter partner member of the Pets for the Elderly Foundation (PFE), a national nonprofit organization that pays a portion of the fee for senior citizens (age 60 and over) to adopt a companion dog or cat from participating shelters. “It is a pleasure for Suncoast Humane Society to partner with a wonderful organization like Pets for the Elderly,” said Phil Snyder, executive director of Suncoast Humane Society. “This program makes it possible for the many seniors living in Southwest Florida to enjoy the benefits of having a companion animal. It also allows for more of our senior adoptable pets to have a 2nd chance at a quality life.” The Pets for the Elderly Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) public charity whose mission is to provide companionship to senior individuals through pet ownership, while saving the lives of companion animals in shelters; animals which might otherwise be destroyed due to lack of appropriate homes, and space limitations. To learn more about the Pets for the Elderly Foundation, visit www.petsfortheelderly.org. Suncoast Humane Society is located at 6781 San Casa Dr. Visit them also online at www.humane.org. 

SHS Adoption Special
Suncoast Humane Society’s “10 Times the Love” cat adoption special has been extended to Sat. March 16. If you are considering adopting a cat, now is the time as adoption fees are only $10! You can look online at www.humane.org or stop by the shelter today at 6781 San Casa Dr. to visit with all the adorable felines. Questions: call 474•7884.


Venice Wildlife Open House

The Wildlife Center of Venice will be having an open house Saturday, March 2 from 1-4 pm.  Please consider joining them to check out their new location that they will be moving to soon.  This new property acquisition is such a huge step to ensure that The Wildlife Center of Venice is around for years to come to continue to help Florida Wildlife. Stop in, take a tour, enjoy a rare peek at some of their current patients as they heal and await their release back into the wild.  Anyone who is interested in volunteering at WCV is encouraged to come, ask questions and chat with the volunteers about what is one of the most rewarding ways to give back to your community.

WCV is located at 925 N. Jackson Rd., Venice.
