My story

Beca is a 24 months old, female, fully vetted, current on shots, spayed Schnauzer Mix who came to us from Puerto Rico. She is ready to provide tons of love. Becca requires an experienced adopter as she is initially very shy. She relates well with other dogs and enjoys running in the yard. She is an inside/outside dog once she feels confident with the humans around her. 

Our adoption process involves 3 steps. First, we evaluate you on paper via the adoption application  or the one that is available on this site. If you meet our requirements we schedule a home visit, we travel up to 1.5 hours from our location. On this occasion, we bring Beca with us to your home. The purpose of this visit is to meet face to face, for you to meet Beca, for us to evaluate your fenced in yard, and if there are other dogs in the home to evaluate the dog to dog interaction. There is no compromise on your part to adopt and neither is there a compromise on our part to adopt her out to you. If we determine that you are the best candidate for his adoption and you are interested in proceeding with the adoption we complete the adoption contract, collect the adoption fee, and provide you with her Veterinary records. We will not adopt out any of our dogs to a household where there is no fenced-in-yard (it does not have to be big, just fenced in) or where electric fences are in use.

Additional adoption info

Our adoption fee ranges from $225 to $350.00 dollars. All animals are fully vetted, spayed, or neuter accordingly as well as microchipped. Puppies usually have either the first set of vaccines or all depending on their age, but may not be spayed or neutered. A refundable deposit is required when adopting a puppy that has not been spayed or neutered. Deposit is refunded upon proof of having spayed or neutered the puppy.

You can see our adoptable pets during one of our monthly ADOPTION EVENTS at the Petsmart store located on Capital Circle NE in Tallahassee, or with a prior appointment coordinated via telephone or email in your home.
An adoption contract is required. This contract includes an agreement for no less than 4 follow-up home visits during the first year of adoption. A FENCED IN YARD is required, no exceptions!

More about this shelter

You Can Make A Difference, Inc. is the final phase in a journey that began many years ago. After years of aiding other organizations to achieve the goal of preventing animal abuse we decided to create our own organization.

It was the realization that only if we stop the birth of unwanted animals that the vicious cycle of animal neglect, abuse and abandoned would eventually be stopped that moved us to establish the organization.

We hope that together we can make a difference in the lives of many animals while at the same time educate others in responsible pet parenting. It is time for all who have been touched by the unconditional love that animals can provide to start to "pay forward."

Our organization is geared to serve residents in Gadsden County, Florida. Gadsden County is the second poorest county in the state of Florida. There is no animal shelter in the county, only a high kill facility.
