Animals enrich our lives. Some are the close companions we love and shelter while others perform services that support public safety and health. Lillian J. Adams knew the value of caring for these members of our community when she created the Fund for Animal Welfare at the Charlotte Community Foundation.
Through this dedicated fund, the Charlotte Community Foundation supports Canine Castaways, Inc., of Arcadia, an all-volunteer organization that fosters dogs until they can find forever homes. The Lillian J. Adams Fund also supports the Suncoast Humane Society, Inc., of Englewood, as well as training programs involving the use of dogs in law enforcement, rescue and life safety and support for the ongoing care of these special dogs after their active service has ended.
