You Can Save Lives: Please Consider Donating Today

In order to realize the goal of a no-kill county, we need the support and monetary contributions from people like you. We realize that it’s one thing to ask for money and say we have a plan, but it’s another to transparently outline the ways your donations will help our community solve the homeless pet problem.

Specific Goals

VOCAL was founded on the belief that change is possible when you partner with the community and unite them for a common goal. There is no easier way to unite people than to break a target into smaller objectives and share how their contributions can complete that objective.

Below you will see the areas and specific goals that VOCAL has outlined to unite Marion County in the No-Kill Mission. By clicking Contribute on a category, your donation will go towards the objectives in that group.

Tammy Green Daniels Fix the Future Fund

Are you passionate about solving problems? Help us prevent countless litters of unwanted cats and dogs by contributing to our spay/neuter fund. This fund is used to help spay and neuter animals owned by people in our community who cannot afford full price sterilization surgeries for their animals on their own. We subsidize the surgeries and ask those who apply for assistance to contribute however they can monetarily. With this fund we have been able to fix thousands of animals in our community. Your participation in this fund will directly help VOCAL lessen the number of homeless animals in Marion County.

Care

Care costs are those that our animals require on non-routine basis. Sometimes we intake animals that need special treatments or surgeries, which adds an additional cost, for example, dental procedures,  medications for bacterial infections, hernia repairs, in-depth diagnostic testing or heartworm disease treatment. When an animal comes into our care and they are in need of specific treatment, we make sure they receive the best care possible. In addition to extraordinary medical treatments, while an animal stays with VOCAL routine medications like, heartworm, flea and tick prevention, an core vaccinations are also necessary.

Facility Costs

VOCAL is very fortunate to have multiple facilities, each one serving a different purpose, and we strive to keep them clean and well-run. Our main campus is on a 24 acre piece of land, which holds two separate buildings. One is an 11,000 square foot facility that has 41 kennels and our administrative offices.  The second is a new building that allows us room to offer a spay/neuter service at lower cost. On SE 17th Street, we have our VOCAL East campus which is home to a cat adoption center. We have a warehouse were items for Project FEED are kept. Maintenance costs include internet, phone, fuel, electric, office supplies, cleaning supplies, and pest control.

General Needs

General Needs for VOCAL begin with animal intake. Intake includes a physical check over, vaccinations, and various tests. Beyond a general assessment and treatment, we take steps to make an animal’s stay with us as comfortable as it can be. All of our dogs have an inside kennel with an attached run. In an effort to get them socialized, used to walking on a leash, and to learn more about them, we have volunteers come in to walk them multiple times throughout the day. To make this practice successful, we need certain collars and leashes. To keep the cats comfortable, we like to outfit their areas with towers and toys. They also need litter boxes and scoops. When an animal is adopted, they always leave with a VOCAL tag for their collar.
