SPAYING AND NEUTERING MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE!
RESCUE A LIFE is a Florida non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization formed by individuals who have devoted years caring for the abandoned and unwanted. For 20 years, more than two-dozen colonies of free-roaming cats and kittens have been cared for and protected throughout Volusia County's commercial areas. Partaking in the TNR program has proven successful in decreasing the numbers of births within the surrounding areas of the colonies and neighborhoods, as well as shelter intake. In addition to feeding hundreds daily, a safe haven, rescue and adoption program is provided for those who have been discarded, injured or abused. Once their specific needs have been met, they are placed up for adoption in search of a forever loving family or companion, by way of a thorough application and screening process.

“We need the community’s help in understanding the importance of spay and neuter. We also need to educate people that no matter what their situation may be, if you take on an animal, you should be keeping that animal, not abandoning or dumping the animal. We have to remember animals don’t have a voice in this matter.”
