About VOCAL – Voices of Change Animal League
Voices of Change Animal League, more commonly known as VOCAL, was founded in 2015 by 3 women who wanted to change the animal welfare landscape in Marion County. Their mission started off with a single goal: opening and operating a low-cost spay neuter clinic. Quickly, their vision morphed and VOCAL grew into a full-fledged animal welfare organization focused on solving the homeless pet problem in Marion County Florida. They realized while opening and operating their spay/neuter clinic was part of the equation to solving the homeless pet problem, it was not the only solution. They needed to have a multi-prong approach that addressed more than just prevention. They needed to offer services to help pet owners who have fallen on hard times but truly love their pets. VOCAL’s Pet Food bank and Project FEED program does just that. It provides free food donated by Chewy to pet owners who need assistance feeding their animals. Additionally, VOCAL’s Tammy Green Daniels Fix the Future fund subsidizes services at VOCAL’s clinic for animals who desperately need care but are unable to receive it elsewhere. Finally, VOCAL’s adoption and rescue program carefully places hundreds of cats and dogs into loving homes each year. Learn more at VocalforPets.org.
