Tuesday is designated as a day of giving, to bring people together to improve their communities by promoting and supporting the causes they believe in.
Created in 2012, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, after the shopping days of Black Friday and Internet Monday, it has evolved into a movement that encourages and inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, work together, and celebrate generosity.

Whether it’s a donation, some of your time, the power of your voice in your community, helping a neighbor or a stranger, showing up for a cause you care about, or sharing some of what you have with those who need help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has What gives him.
The Animal Shelter Foundation provides resources to help more homeless animals find loving forever homes, supports community-wide spay and neutral efforts to reduce unwanted animals that end up in the shelter, and promotes responsible pet ownership. While many animals are healthy and ready for adoption, some are sick, injured, or need special care that require additional financial support.
Provide assistance carefully
Funding from the ASF is often the last hope for a homeless animal. The individuals and companies that collaborate with ASF make this possible.
Donations received to help animals through ASF programs:
- Complimentary spay/neuter vouchers (includes rabies vaccinations)
- Specialized veterinary care
- Heartworm treatment for dogs
- Enrich the shelter for shelter animals such as beds, scratching posts, leashes, playgrounds and toys to improve their waiting time for adoption
- Low Cost Dog Etiquette Lessons (Online Lessons at No Cost During COVID)
- Foster Care Support
- NEW Tally Spa – High Quality, Low Cost Sterilization/Neutralizing Clinic from ASF
ASF is committed to continuing to help the animals and families who care for pets in our community. We’ve added programs in partnership with Tallahassee Animal Services (Animal Shelter) to help keep people and pets together. During the COVID 19 Pandemic ASF, the ASF provided:
- Additional funding for veterinary care and heartworm assistance while some shelter vet services have been suspended
- Expanded the HOPES program that provides food and materials for domestic pets
- Help walk the dog into the shelter
- Providing cat food to caregivers who take care of community cats
- Virtual/Online Dog Etiquette Lessons Offered
- Donated to a community pet food store
ASF is very excited to open in September 2021 the Tally Spay, a new high-quality, low-cost spay/sterilization clinic that will help reduce overpopulation in our communities for unwanted animals, reduce intake at local animal shelters and help families in need of pet care.
How does ASF make a difference
Because community support and donations, thousands of animals have been saved. In fiscal year 2020 alone, ASF directly helped 965 domestic animals by providing spay/neuter vouchers, heartworm assistance, lifesaving visits and surgeries, and low-cost dog etiquette lessons. Our new high-quality, low-cost, sterilization clinic, Tally Spay, which opened in September 2021, will save thousands more. As of the end of October, the clinic has already performed 300 spay/neuter surgeries.
