The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County has a new name.
The organization will now be doing business under the name “Your Humane Society SPCA.” Officials say the new name is shorter and easier and honors the organization’s 37-year history as a no-kill organization.
The new name also was chosen to emphasize the strong personal relationship SPCA has with the community in its lifesaving work, to help eliminate confusion with Sumter County government facilities and to broaden the organization’s reach in the area.
While the name and logo will change, the goals of Your Humane Society SPCA remains the same – to protect animals. The mission is carried out through:
- Direct care for animals that are injured, abused, unwanted or abandoned;
- Securing homes for as many animals as possible; and
- Providing spay/neuter services, pet food distribution, humane education and pet safety information to help reduce pet overpopulation and improve the quality of life for animals.
As always, the public is invited to visit the Your Humane Society SPCA campus at 994 CR 529A in Lake Panasoffkee and meet the team of staff and volunteers, and of course, the animals in their care.
