James came to us last December with an ulcer on his eye, lumps on his chest, and a matted and tangled gray coat. The scruffy old guy had been neglected for most of his seven years. But that didn’t stop him from having a sweet disposition and giving adorable smiles. Despite his heartbreaking history, his spirit was still intact, and he still had a lot of love to give.
Thanks to friends like you, the Humane Society of Sarasota County was able to give James the second chance he needed for a happy, healthy future. We fixed his eye, removed his lumps, and gave him a thorough grooming, freeing him to move comfortably. Right after the new year, he received the best gift of all: he was adopted! Now he’s safe and loved and spends his days snuggled on his mom’s lap, visions of treats dancing in his head.
Will you help more animals like James this holiday season? With your Holiday Fund Drive gift, you’ll provide safe shelter and lifesaving medical care to our area’s most vulnerable animals. Your gift will save lives.
Sweet James arrived at HSSC with an ulcer on his eye, lumps on his chest, and a matted and tangled gray coat.

As a no-kill shelter, HSSC never sets time limits for animals. But time and space are not free. It’s only through the support of generous people like you that we can give animals like James the time and attention they need. Your generosity turns suffering and neglect into safety and love for over 1,800 dogs and cats each year.
