For The Love Of Animals Expo

YOUR Humane Society SPCA, host of the well-received 2019 For the Love of Animals Expo, has postponed the second annual Expo in 2020 to Saturday, October 24. Mark your calendars as it will return to the Wildwood Community Center at 6500 CR 139, from 9AM-3PM and will feature not only an array of regional animal rescues and shelters but also host many educational opportunities for animal lovers and pet owners. Civic groups, vendors, nonprofits of all service types, clubs for children and adults will also be part of the day’s festivities. Food, live entertainment, auctions and chance drawings will also be available to attendees. A “Be Kind to Animals” contest for children will soon be promoted and the winners will be announced at the Expo, October 24th. Sponsorship and vendor spaces are still available. For more information contact Claudia Labbé, Fundraising/PR Chairperson, at 352-793-9117 or

“The Expo, originally scheduled for January 18, encountered unexpected circumstances which caused the rescheduling and location changes. We hope the change has not inconvenienced anyone but our goal was to present the best animal themed expo possible in our region. We look forward to another great turnout of participating non-profits, sponsors and attendees as our inaugural Expo had,” commented Claudia Labbé. The For the Love of Animals Expo not only serves as a fundraiser for YOUR Humane Society SPCA but also helps the many other participating non-profits and animal organizations place adoptable animals. The general public can gain information on the many other worthy businesses and agencies who help their communities.


Kuranda Shelter Beds

Our shelter’s dogs have been fortunate to enjoy comfortable rest atop the many donated Kuranda beds we received years ago. They lasted quite a while but now it is time to replace some and have some spare covers handy. The blue ones go in our adoption floor kennels and the burgundy ones are for our quarantine kennels. Thanks to the generosity of Kuranda, for every bed that is donated, they are also donating a snuggly fleece cover!🐾🐾

➡️Please help with a donation so we can provide our dogs with replacement Kuranda beds and covers at:

Thank you all for YOUR continued support!❤️
