2019 Summer Appeal

When you look back on challenging times in your life, what do you recall most?

For me, it’s the helpers. Those people who saw I was struggling, reached out, and gave me a hand. They helped turn a difficult time into one of hope and healing.

That’s exactly what you do for the animals here at the Humane Society of Sarasota County. They need compassion and loving care. They need a hand. And you, through your kind support, reach out and give it to them. Will you lend a hand to them once again with your gift today?

Your gift will save Sarasota County’s most vulnerable animals … animals like Lil’ Man.

Lil’ Man was the runt of a litter of eight brown-and-white puppies—so young their eyes were still closed. With no momma in sight and the temperature dropping, they might not have made it through the January night if it wasn’t for the HSSC staffer who found them. Thanks to you, Lil’ Man and his siblings received the lifesaving care they needed.

While his siblings were growing into rambunctious puppies, Lil’ Man was fighting for his life. A dedicated staffer fostered him, supplying the love, while we provided the lifesaving care. It took several weeks of hard work, but Lil’ Man pulled through.

These pups were found outside in the cold—motherless and too young to fend for themselves. At HSSC, they received the immediate care and nourishment they needed to survive. Now they're all living happily in loving homes.

Lil' Man was the runt of the litter. While his siblings were growing, he was struggling to eat and thrive. Our dedicated staff gave him extra care and love.

Our staff and volunteers gave the pups safe shelter and nourishing food. They needed time and space to heal and grow strong...and because of friends like you, that’s just what they got.

With your gift today, you can give more animals like Lil’ Man and his siblings the lifesaving help they need.

Every animal that comes to the Humane Society of Sarasota County has a story. The details vary, but they all have one thing in common—they need a hand. Your generosity gives neglected animals the healing they need—and the hope for better futures in loving homes. Our staff and volunteers experienced something beautiful in helping these vulnerable puppies. They held eight lives in their hands. Now those eight dogs, including Lil’ Man, are in loving homes with people who treasure them.

That’s what often happens—people who rescue animals feel rescued in return. The animals we save have so much love to give…and so much life to live. With your support, we can continue this important, lifesaving work.

Please give Sarasota County’s animals a hand with your gift today.

Thank you for all you do for animals in need. Your generosity saves lives.
