What we're about
TEARS stands for Together Every Animal Receives Support. TEARS, Inc. is a volunteer driven, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, founded to support abused, abandoned and relinquished animals at the Seminole County Animal Services (SCAS) and other county facilities. Our mission is to work in unison with these facilities to improve both shelter living conditions and the quality of life for these homeless animals. SCAS is unique in that it must take in every animal brought to the shelter and provide it with food and basic medicine, regardless of whether or not it has the space or adequate staffing to care for the animal. With budget cuts becoming more common place as a result of our current economy, the shelter and the animals have fewer resources. What makes the outlook of these animals even bleaker is that the county shelter is not permitted to conduct its own fundraising to supplement the budget shortfalls like other rescue groups and public foundations are able to. It's because of this TEARS was formed. We hope that you will join our group to learn about our fund raising parties and events that you may attend socially, as well as to consider the options of helping with volunteering, sponsoring and/or fostering for the animals that desperately need medical attention and adoption.
Thank you for considering joining our TEARS family!
