Pets Come First Inc. – The New SPCA
Pets Come First, Inc. is strongly committed to facilitating the placement of stray and unwanted animals into loving homes. They ensure responsible shelter management within our community, working together to eliminate the critical overpopulation of homeless, stray, and abused animals. Educating our community on the importance of spaying and neutering all animals decreases the number of surrendered and unwanted animals to area shelters and rescue groups. They work with other rescues, local & state police, Humane Officers, and Dog Law Enforcement Officers to provide monetary and voluntary resources to support and sponsor local animal programs in our community. They offer emergency placement, food, and medical services for the pets of approved and responsible low-income families and senior citizens.

Hope For Kids – hopeforkidsinc.org
Hope For Kids is dedicated to serving the most disadvantaged infants, children, and adolescents by providing specialized foster care services from a Christian worldview. We believe that serving as a foster parent is a ministry. You are helping children in need: those who have not been well cared for or loved unconditionally, those who are locked inside bodies which appear imperfect, and those who have suffered emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually. As a Hope For Kids treatment foster parent you have the opportunity to expose children to God’s love as you model Christian behaviors and values in your home, take children to church and youth group activities, and pray for their healing.
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation – toysfortots.org
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation’s mission is to assist the U. S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. This assistance includes raising funds to provide toys to supplement the collections of local Toys for Tots campaigns, provide promotional and support material, and defray the costs of conducting annual Toys for Tots campaigns. Other Foundation support includes providing administrative, advisory, financial, logistic and promotional support to local Toys for Tots Coordinators; managing funds raised and donated based on the use of Toys for Tots name or logo; providing other support the Marine Corps, as a federal agency, cannot provide, and conducting public education and information programs about Toys for Tots that call the general public to action in support of this patriotic community program.
