Review for HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE TREASURE COAST INC, Palm City, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I've been intimately affiliated with HSTC as volunteer and staff member for six years. HSTC does a tremendously good and capable job of saving pets' lives, educating the public on pet issues, teaching the public's pets obedience training and helping the public to get low-cost spay/neuter surgery and euthanasia/cremation as needed. None of what HSTC is today would be so were it not for Frank Valente's business ability and focus on pet needs. While he, of course, oversees shelter policies & procedures, Valente delegates to staff those issues, such as animal care, that are their responsiblility. He focuses on the responsibilities befitting a President and CEO. In just one year, Valente secured 5 days a week on-site veterinary attention for the pets. Two years later, he is expanding our surgical and quarantine units in order to help more pets and has moved the financial situation from red to black through tough negotiations and inspiring solicitations. Without money the animals in our care have no chance for room and board, health care and eventually a loving home. HSTC is offering all of that to 2000 pets per year. We are grateful to staff, volunteers and the community for making this possible.
