We have some great news! Tallahassee Pets Alive! has partnered with Fix-Tallahassee, a local advocacy group working to decrease shelter killing at the Tallahassee/Leon Community Animal Services Center. With the increase in Florida cities and counties adopting the No-Kill resolution, we feel this is the time to press for shelter reform here in Tallahassee.
While Fix-Tallahassee works toward this goal, we have decided that rather than helping a few pets by rushing the launch of our programs, we can save more lives by first helping to create a safe shelter. This will also give us the chance to put in place a strong infrastructure. Building a large volunteer base and establishing sustainable resources and funding will ensure the success of our supportive programs.
Please help and support our friends at Fix-Tallahassee. If you live in Leon County, come join the campaign. There will be lots of things for everyone to do. Tabling events are being planned to begin immediately, petitions to be signed, letters to be written, commission meeting to attend. There will be something for everyone, and the animals of Leon County need your help! Whether you are an animal lover, concerned citizen, or poli-sci student, Fix-Tallahassee needs your help. Change doesn’t just happen! It takes the involvement and effort of people that care. It is YOUR shelter, paid for with YOUR tax dollars, and you have not only the right but also the responsibility to insure your money is spent efficiently.
