My story

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

Chalupa is a 1 y/o male Chihuahua weighing less than 15 pounds, who was found roaming the streets by animal control. He is a sweet, endearing and calm dog who presents with cherry eye and no other physical condition/problem. He relates well with other dogs, is fully vetted, heartworm negative, and current on shots. Chalupa is already scheduled to be evaluated for his cherry eye condition by the veterinarian and if recommended surgery will be performed. If interested in offering Chalupa a forever home, please know, you can submit the application:  Dog Pre-adoption questionnaire form: and we can proceed with the home visit but he will not be allowed to move in with the adopter until after surgery (if recommended) is performed and he has been discharged from veterinary services.

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.
