Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Central Florida a.k.a. SPCA of Central Florida Overview
Monthly, program volunteers deliver pet food, packaged by the SPCA/CFL staff and volunteers. All seniors are on fixed incomes. Seniors are better able to maintain their pets in their homes while providing them with proper nutrition and not their own food scraps. There is no charge for this pet food or its delivery.
PFX volunteers visit with the seniors, giving much needed company. Volunteers are able to identify specific pets' needs then followed up on by SPCA/CFL. The agency provides, free of charge, spay/neuter surgery and basic, but important, annual vaccinations. Other medical needs are provided at low or reduced cost.
Maintaining the health of a pet of a senior is also maintaining the health of the senior. These beloved pets become the sole companions of many of our community's seniors. As other loved ones are no longer available for companionship, pets become both family and friends.
