Pet saved by Floyd's Fund

Monday, April 11, 2005

Benji has a new life and a new home because of Floyd's Fund and the Clay County Humane Society.

Successfully treated for Parvo, the good-natured dog was adopted by a family through a rescue program located in Missouri.

"Benji is just a sweetie," Floyd's Fund Director Jodie Wilson said. "Floyd made such a difference in our family's life, that I know Benji can do the same for his new family."

Floyd's Fund raises money to provide for a rescued animal's medical expenses when they arrive at the shelter.

"Almost all animals brought to the shelter are in need of some form of medical treatment when they arrive," Shelter Director Rick Moore said, explaining that it is a huge burden on the shelter's limited budget.

The hope of the creator's of Floyd's Fund is that it will generate enough funding to support the medical care of the animals and help support other areas of need as well.

"This is the best part of the job," said Bill Bell, President of the Board of Directors for the Clay County Humane Society. He helps the shelter take animals as far away as Chicago to place pets in good homes and is excited by Benji's adoption. "It feels great to find a loving home for one of our animals."
