Help Us Build Our New Shelter

Buy A Gift/Memorial Brick

Unfortunately, we do not yet have all of the funding needed to complete the building phase of the shelter, so we are asking people to help us get it done. Purchasing a gift or memorial brick is a great way for people to honor or remember people or pets that are important to them. Each brick will be capable of three lines of text holding 21 characters per line for you to honor your loved one. This is a great opportunity for people to leave a lasting legacy while creating a permanent tribute to those who have contributed most to your life. Sponsorship levels begin with gift bricks for a donation of $100 each. For information on how you can be a brick while honoring an important person or pet in your life, please contact Laura Chaikin at 863-324-5227 or email laurahspc@aol.com. BE A BRICK; BUY A BRICK!

Off-Site Adoptions

The Humane Society of Polk County goes to various sites around the county where cats and dogs are available for adoption. These events are organized and staffed by staff and volunteers who help setup/take down the tables and cages and assist potential adopters.  Some of these include:  The Pet Fest at Hunt Fountain Park, Lake Alfred October Fest, Friday Night Live in Lake Wales and many others. - view gallery
