Our Mission

To work in unison with Seminole County Animal Services, and with other local shelters and groups, to improve both the quality of life and shelter living conditions for these animals and the prospect of starting a new life in a new forever home or foster home. Our goal will be achieved through charitable fund-raising events, community education of the need to spay/neuter pets and through support of adoption events. TEARS Inc. encourages respect, compassion and kindness to all animals everywhere.
