We have adopted 2 cats from Suncoast Humane Society. One adult cat had a rough start in life, he had an eye infection in both eyes when he was brought to the shelter. With the proper medical care and lots of TLC he was ready for us to adopt him. The other kitty was a kitten when we adopted him. He was raised in a foster home, instead of the shelter to receive constant loving in a non stressful environment. We just love them both!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be able to spend more time with the animals at the shelter

I've adopted 2 of my animals from from englewood humane society,my cat "Cash" in 2003 and I had a great experience the people really cared about the animals and myself. Cash passed away in 2012 I was heart broken. In 2013 I went back to adopt a puppy and the people were so compassionate when I told them about my cat, I could't find a better place to be. Casey my puppy is now 1yr and my best friend.I bring her in for her shots and Everytime I do they welcome us like we're family .I really can't say enough about them.
My experience with All the people I've met and the cleanliness of the facility was outstanding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Perfect as is

I have been following the adoptions that go out from Suncoast and see that they do wonderful work. I presently have 2 dogs (one adopted) and when the occasion arises I won't hesitate to go to Suncoast to adopt another dog.

My husband and I donate food and toys often to the Suncoast Humane Society. Pets all are clean and well attended. The staff seem to all love and really care for the animals. I would adopt a dog there.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it larger for more homeless animals

We just adopted a 4 1/2 year old male cat on Jan 4, 2014. I went in thinking we would bring home a younger kitty, but I fell in love with Mr. Kitty as he was called. All of the staff were helpful and seemed to really care for the animals. It's only been 2 wks, but he is adjusting well. We have 2 other cats in the house which are female, and all is going as plan. His new name is Mister... we dropped the kitty part.

My family adopted all of our wonderful pets from this great local shelter, 3 dogs and a cat since 2001. We are big fans of Suncoast and will continue to support them through physical and monetary donations to ensure others can have the same experiences should they choose to adopt a pet.

And though I myself have moved away from the area, I still love to say hello to the cats when I'm in town as they are always well-accommodated and up for some play time :)

I can't say enough about Suncoast Humane Society. They have been here in our community for many years, through thick and thin, and have supported us through all kinds of difficult times. I have adopted dogs and cats, volunteered, and supported the local outings. The animals I have adopted were well cared for and I know in the future I will adopt again from them.

Suncoast Humane Society, Englewood, Florida is one of the last truely open door facilities. They do not restrict the animals that they take in. They do not only take the animals that can be adopted right away. They take "ALL" of the animals brought to them, unlike others in the area. They are one of the last hopes for the elderly or for those who have lost their jobs who want to keep their pets. They provide food for the local residents through their food pantry program which works with Meals on Wheels. They also sponsor low cost spay.neuter programs in the local community to help keep the pet population down. They are truely a great organization. Thanks for letting me repond.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with their offsite programs to help get animals adopted.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them all the money I could.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their effort to educate the community in the real tough world of being a homeless animal.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional. Dedicated, truely caring individuals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help the community more. More education, more lowcost spay/neuters, more care for unwanted animals, more support for the low income individuals down on their luck,

Ways to make it better...

I personnaly can't think of a thing. I just wish I could do more for them so they could do more for others.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

education for the community. If everyone would realise that animals need the same care as individual's and are not something that you drop off at the corner and drive away. The other is money for day to day operations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
