Ongoing collaboration helped five local animal welfare organizations receive FAF (Florida Animal Friends) grants totaling nearly $100,000 last week, as they continue to try to stem the tide of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens in the Southwest Florida region. The Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County, Animal Rescue Coalition, Animal Network, Inc., Humane Society of Manatee County and Gulf Shore Animal League each received amounts ranging from $15,000 to almost $25,000, making FAF’s contribution to the 2019-2020 trap-neuter-return (TNR) and spay/neuter programs in the region an unprecedented amount. Additional support is being provided by Feline Friends of Southwest Florida, a local trapping and transport charitable organization. FAF is a private entity in Florida that disburses revenue made on the sale of the Florida Animal Friend Specialty License Plates.

Through these programs, there will be more than 2,000 sterilization surgeries provided over two counties, which are predicted to lower the births of unwanted puppies and kittens in those areas.
