Adopt Violet

November 13, 2018

Welcome to the 98.5 KTK Wet Nose Wednesday web page, where we show you adoptable pets from local shelters that will make a great addition to your family!

This week we’d like to introduce you to, Violet.

Feeling kinda down lately? Need a little color in your life? How about some Violet!? Violet is a lovely American Staffordshire Terrier mix who needs a home of her own, and she’s just waiting to cheer you up each day when you come home from work! This pretty, sweet girl is about 6 and a half years old, and came to VOCAL as a transfer from a local shelter this past spring.   Violet loves to run and play, so a fenced in yard would be ideal for her. She is a couch potato whose favorite activity is snuggling while watching your favorite program on tv. She loves children and seems to get along well with other dogs. Weighing in at around 60 lbs, Violet is also a perfect medium-sized companion for any family. We invite you to add some color in your world and inquire about Violet today! If you would like to find out about Violet please submit an application to learn more [CLICK HERE]. If you’d like to request more information, please email VOCAL [CLICK HERE] or call 352-289-0800.

VOCAL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has broken this mission down into 12 key steps to make Marion County a no-kill county. Some of these steps build upon one another, some can be worked in parallel, but all require contributions from people like you. Please consider a monetary donation, donation of needed items or becoming a volunteer.

 

STATEMENT

TWO NON-PROFITS JOIN TO FIX THE FUTURE FOR MARION PETS
TLC PetSnip in collaboration with Voices of Change Animal League (VOCAL) will bring low-cost spay-neuter services to local community in near future.

Ocala, FL- A recent collaboration between two like-minded animal welfare organizations will bring low-cost, high quality spay-neuter & wellness services to Marion County as early as Nov. 1. The new clinic will be conveniently located at 2532 SE 17th St. Ocala.

The reason we joined forces with TLC PetSnip to provide services now is because the need is so great in our community. Pet overpopulation contributes to more stray animals, which can overwhelm the Good Samaritans that try to help them. There are no open admission shelters in the area any longer which has exacerbated the problem.
This collaborative effort does not change our plans to build the Spay-Neuter clinic on our property. In fact, construction is underway and is expected to be completed by March 2019. Our donors are making that possible because they understand the urgency and want to help. We are so fortunate to have so many caring people in this community.

Linda Norman, President / Co-Founder, VOCAL

TLC PetSnip has performed more than 27,500 sterilization surgeries in the Lakeland/Tampa area, and served over 30,000 animals in the 5 years of their existence. They follow the ASPCA Humane Alliance model that is considered the gold standard for non-profit low cost, high quality and high volume clinics. The Humane Alliance will not accept everyone that applies for their training. Adherence to their standards is required and TLC PetSnip veterinarians and staff are all Humane Alliance trained and certified.

TLC PetSnip clinics average 40 surgeries a day, but are capable on cat days of doing as many as 70, without sacrificing safety or quality. This ability to do high-volume is the key to preventing additional unwanted animals.
