WhooHoo!!!!!! Seminole County Animal Services (SCAS) has been selected as one of the 108 shelters in our country to be eligible for this awesome opportunity! What is the challenge? The $100K Challenge is a national competition to inspire animal shelters—and those who support them—to go above and beyond to increase pet adoption, reunite lost pets with their families and save more animals’ lives. Cool, huh?! There are an estimated 4,000 – 6,000 animal shelters in the US. Being one of the participating shelters is an honor and… well… a challenge! It’s a challenge the staff and volunteers at SCAS are more than willing to take on.

Why help SCAS? The short answer is they are the absolute best animal shelter in the state of FL! I began working with them in 1994, not long after they acquired a new shelter manager named Mary Beth. She was and continues to be the driving force that saves countless lives and makes families complete. She also… just so happened… to pioneer how shelters could and should utilize rescue groups. Yeah, she’s pretty awesome!

Did you know the Taco Bell chihuahua came from SCAS? Well, our Taco played the part of the stunt double to the world-famous Gidget.

I know this to be true since we fostered Taco and sent him in a limo to Miami to audition to play backup to Gidget. There were even a few shots in the famous commercials I could tell were him, saw his boy parts! He was a professional actor and lived a happy life with his trainer and Gidget.

The now famous Dolly The Pitbull and Harper the Swimmer Puppy both came from SCAS.

This is not to mislead you that a pet you adopt from SCAS will become a television star or internet celebrity. The odds of that are probably pretty slim.

But any pet you adopt, if you invest your heart and time, will become all the superstar you ever needed. 🙂
