The Society is a caring and wonderful charity that helps animals in need. I have been greatly impressed by their kindness and caring attitude for our pets.
I am a retired vet's assistant, or today known as Vet- Tech. We moved here in 1992, and I volunteered at Suncoast for a time. I saw what went on behind the scenes, and it was all good. Very caring workers, went over and beyond expectations. I was impressed with the cleanliness of everything! Of course it is always sad to see homeless pets, but everyone took personal interest in the animals. Especially those that had been there the longest. Took playtime with animals outside, as time would permit. Also took turns in walking the dogs, often by trained volunteers. My husband and I adopted a 6 yr old dog from there, one yr ago. They were very thorough for the sake of the pet, to be sure it was going to a good forever home. I went alone, as my husband was I'll at the time, but they called him on the phone to be sure he was aware of what I was doing. All went well and we have a happy, spoiled new family member!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I could only say to try encourage people giving up a pet for adoption, to be sincerely honest with there answers associated with the pet. I know that is close to impossible but if people only understood it is for the best interest of the pet! The people who gave up my girl said that she loved other animals, loved to play, never bit anyone or had personality issues. Wow, so not true. But she is ours now and we will live "carefully" with those issues. She has been given up too many times!
