Some of the adoptable Dogs at the Sarasota Co. Sheriff's Animal Shelter.
Our Mission is to help fund the medical and behavioral needs of animals in rescue organizations and shelters throughout our community.
Recipient of Giving
Our most recent Recipient of Giving is Alley, a beautiful young German Shepherd pup that was hit by a semi. How traumatic is that? She was taken to a local shelter and from there she was pulled by Southwest Florida German Shepherd Rescue, Inc.
In the midst of this, LEADSRQ was contacted requesting support for her medical needs and we jumped at the chance to help this special girl! This story could have had a tragic ending but we are happy to report she’s in a loving home and has been adopted.
Thank you to our supporters and contributors for making it possible for us to help her.

Sweet, young Oreo found himself at a county shelter with a strange growth on his head. His skull appeared almost cone shaped and would seem to fluctuate from week to week in size. Veterinarians could only guess what the growth meant and worried about tampering it with biopsies as it may only exacerbate the problem. LEADSRQ was very happy to offer funding a CT contrast scan with our friends at Veterinary Surgery Center of Sarasota. After a full day of testing, we were thrilled to learn of Oreo’s diagnosis: idiopathic calvarial hyperostosis - a rare, benign x-linked disorder that only affects the skull. Oreo’s prognosis is good and his future looks even better because he was recently adopted and has a wonderful, new Mom!! Congratulations Oreo and happy life to you and your new family!
