water wells for africa

Water Wells for Africa (WWFA) brings their first water ever to people in remote, hard-to-reach places in Africa. The villages we’ve been helping since 1996 are in areas where many other organizations do not go, but we have not forgotten these people on the fringes of life…and we invite YOU to be part of improving and saving lives in these villages.

Our wells have a 97% sustainability rate because we train people in the community to maintain and repair the wells. We also provide education on personal hygiene, which along with having clean water, helps people stay healthy and avoid waterborne illness like cholera and diarrhea. Join us in changing lives for the better!

humane society of manatee county

The Humane Society of Manatee County is a 501(c)(3) not for profit animal welfare organization that was originally formed in 1970, and today is considered as the lead animal welfare agency in Manatee County. Humane Society of Manatee County operates a no-kill shelter, the Second Chance Adoption Center located at 2515 14th Street W. and a veterinary clinic / high volume spay and neuter clinic at 2415 14th Street W. in downtown Bradenton. Each year the Second Chance Adoption Center rehomes more than 1,000 dogs and cats through our comprehensive rehabilitation and adoption program. Many of the animals that enter our adoption program are medically challenged or have behavioral challenges. Each animal in our adoption center receives the highest quality care, medical care and behavioral assessment and training to complete the rehabilitation process resulting in a successful adoption into a new loving home.

In September of 2015, Humane Society of Manatee County opened a 10,000 square foot state of the art veterinary clinic and high volume Humane Alliance Model spay and neuter clinic. Our veterinary clinic is open to the public by appointment and provides high quality, low-to-moderate cost veterinary care to ensure that this care is available to all cats and dogs in our community. The services available at Humane Society of Manatee County Veterinary Clinic continue to expand to meet the growing needs of the animals in our community. In addition to the wellness services that have expanded beyond vaccines and basic exams, our clinic now offers diagnostic exams, heartworm testing and treatment, dentals for both dogs and cats, digital radiography (x-ray), walk-in wellness and vaccine clinics and numerous surgical procedures. Current clinic clients can also purchase low cost pet meds, flea, tick and heartworm prevention online or at the clinic.
