S.P.A.Y.-L.E.E Inc. is an animal welfare organization, totally comprised of volunteers and tax deductible and whose purpose is to assist pet owners and those who rescue homeless pets with referrals to the most affordable vet services for vaccinations/sterilizations. We sometimes assist with the costs for sterilizations. We have no animal shelter, but house animals in need of rehoming in foster homes of our volunteers, or in the homes of people trying to place their pets. We adopt by application, references, home visits and contract. Our contract is easily followed by responsible humans. Our adoption fee ranges from $75 to $400, largely depending on what we have spent in order to bring an animal to adoptability. There are times that we have spent hundreds to thousands of dollars on a needy but deserving animal. Of course, we cannot expect people to reimburse us for expenses that outrageous. Sometimes there is no cost expended from us and the animal comes in totally vetted and in appropriate shape. In this case, a minimal adoption fee and usually microchipping is charged to the adoptor. About half the animals we have available for adoption come to us from animal shelters We do off premesis adoptions at PetSmart stores locally, educational booths, and internet rescue with the Florida Dog Rescue list, and network with doberman rescues in the state. Since we have no shelter or business location, we are available for information or consultation at any time that someone is available to answer the phones. This includes weekends and nights.
We have approximately 75 dues paying members at any given time, and do a newsletter 2-3 times a year. Our annual meeting is in December.
