My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Pinki is about two years old, she is really sweet and energetic. She is fully vetted, and microchipped. She is heartworm and intestinal parasites negative. Pinki enjoys the company of humans and other animals. 

It is our mission to be the voice for the voiceless. Each dog, cat, or horse that we adopt out has been promised a second chance for happiness and security. We take this promise very seriously. Each potential adopter is asked to complete a PRE-ADOPTION QUESTIONNAIRE. Following receipt of this document we proceed to schedule what we call a “meet & greet”.  

Residents of Panama City, Panama City Beach or any adjacent areas, please know that we will only travel to complete a home visit if we have (2) potential adopters in your area. Unfortunately, you are in CST, and we are traveling from EST, which means that it becomes a day trip to complete a home visit, for efficiency purposes as well as to decrease our traveling expenses we have had to establish this rule. We are sorry!

We travel up to 1 hours from our location to bring the pet to your home which allows you to see him/her in a secure environment without external distractions. It also allows us to observe the environment where the dog/cat will live and make sure that it provides all the required security to prevent as much as possible any accident. Given the extraordinary circumstances our country is experiencing we have now also instituted what we call "virtual home visits". 

Using technology for "good", we visit your household using a free app called Google Duo. You can install it for free on your smartphone and will allow us to have a "face-to-face" conversation as well as it will allow us to take a peek at your yard. This allows you to see the dog you are interested in, and us to evaluate your fenced-in-yard.

After the meet and greet (in your home, adhering to CDC guidelines, I will wear a mask and we will meet in your yard) and the interaction between you and our dog appears to be a good fit, and if you are still interested in our companion dog or cat, and If this is the pet for you we will proceed to complete the formal ADOPTION CONTRACT, residents will proceed to complete the adoption donation at this time,. WE no longer engage in out of state adoptions!

We ask from all of our potential adopters to read our adoption contract beforehand and welcome as many questions as you may have after reading it.

WE complete home visits on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 4 pm, Wednesdays, from 10-11 am, or 3 to 4 pm. Please let us know which one is more convenient for you.

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.
