TREATS, Inc. funds a vitally important, year-round,
free pet spay/neuter program to help overcome the nationwide pet overpopulation
problem that fills animal shelters to the brim. Spay/neuter surgeries
are the major way to reduce the number of homeless animals that come into
the animal shelter.
One day, with everyone’s help, our society should be able to balance
the number of available homes with the number of available pets.
Education is a vital part of TREATS, Inc.’s mission.
We help provide training both for dogs and people. Obedience training
for dogs is a vital way to make them such great pets that no one wants
to turn them into animal shelters. Training for people comes in many ways
as people of all ages learn the elements of being responsible pet owners
and providing humane treatment to animals.
Camp Bark-ly, a summer day camp for youngsters
between the ages of six and 12, is sponsored by TREATS, Inc. It focuses
on helping youngsters develop the skills to be a responsible pet owner
and to be safe with animals.
The camp’s motto speaks volumes about its mission:
Protect, Respect & Never Neglect Your Pets!
Most youngsters come to Camp Bark-ly with a wide variety
of pets, but many come as a requirement their parents set before they
are allowed to get a pet.
When campers graduate, they informally serve as humane
educators. Through their good examples and actions, they spread the word
about responsible pet ownership to their friends and classmates.
Camp Bark-ly enrollment fees help support
educational outreach programs that promote the humane treatment of animals
and responsible pet ownership. For more information about Camp Bark-ly,

We help provide medical support for neglected and abused
pets that are taken into Tallahassee Animal Service Center. The support
helps people who have adopted pets from the Animal Service Center pay
for costly medical care like heartworm treatment for their new pets. As
funds allow, it can provide other medical help to those who need help
with pet care.
