Help us Build Their Field of Dreams
UPDATE 02/10/18: Thanks to our amazing FoMCAS Donors we met our goal for the first set of play yards! We will be beginning our next fundraiser to install Turf in the additional play yards very soon. FoMCAS has the ribbon cutting for the first 2 at Manatee County Animal Services on March 7, 2018 at 2:00 pm.
Shelter life isn’t easy and the time dogs get to spend in play yards is precious to them. Clean, healthy dogs equal successful adoptions. Many shelters are turning to artificial turf which also provides a welcoming appearance to their facility. That’s why Friends of Manatee County Animal Services is championing the “Field of Dreams” campaign.
Currently, the animal shelter in Palmetto has nothing but dirt in their two front yards. Friends of Manatee County Animal Services has received a quote from EasyTurf in Ellenton, Florida, to install artificial turf in these areas. This is the “grass of choice” of doggie daycare centers and kennels, humane societies, animal shelters and veterinarians. The cost to install is $40,000.00 for two play yards
