In a cooperative effort, Tim Maguire, Director of Nassau Animal Care and Control and FAN member David Fashingbauer have submitted an updated draft of the Nassau County Animal Ordinance to County Attorney Mike Mullin. The draft includes updated definitions and language that prohibits unattended tethering and language prohibiting retail sale of dogs, cats and rabbits in commercial establishments. The ordinance is expected to be presented to County Commissioners at a public meeting in late November. We will send out a special alert once the meeting date is confirmed.

Good News! We promoted Stallone in our October FAN Tails and on our FAN Facebook page and we are happy to report that he has been adopted! Good luck Stallone - live long and prosper! You deserve it!
Here is an update on the six pups that lost their home:

Max and Cocoa were adopted together and are headed to Alabama. Sugar Bear now lives in a beach home in Fernandina Beach. Abbey,Tanner and Snowy are at foster homes still waiting to find their furever home.

FAN paid for the vaccines, neutering, flea and parasite treatment. Needless to say, this has put a strain on FAN's already limited funds. Please consider making a donation so we can help more dogs find furever homes!

If you know someone who may want Tanner or Snowy or Abbey, please forward this newsletter and contact FAN.
Friends of Animals Nassau (FAN) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Nassau County Florida. FAN focuses on finding homes for pets and assists in their medical care, including heartworm treatment. FAN is not an animal shelter, instead we keep pets in loving foster homes with caring people while they undergo treatment until we find them a furever home. We are able to help animals t hrough the work of our tireless volunteers, our fundraising events, our generous sponsors and your contributions. All donations are tax deductible.
How can you help? We need volunteers to help with marketing, social media, photography, planning fund raising events, dog walking and fostering homeless pets. If you love animals, have some skills and can devote a little of your time, contact us.
