July of 2001 was a pivotal month for the Tri County Humane Society in Boca Raton, a nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter and rescue facility that continues to serve Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
During that month, the Boca Raton City Council signed a pact allowing Tri County, founded four years earlier by Jeannette Christos and Suzi Goldsmith, to take over operations of the city-operated animal shelter on Boca Rio Road just west of Florida's Turnpike.
The takeover was good. It gave Tri County a facility where it could house, feed, care for and provide medical services for abandoned and neglected animals. And with Tri County now running the show, Boca Raton was able to save $500,000 in its annual budget.
Ratchet forward 13 years and Tri County is again at a pivotal point. Just months after changing its name to Tri County Animal Rescue (TCAR) and changing its logo to a more dynamic, red, orange and yellow symbol, the organization that survives mainly on donations and fund-raising efforts is looking to construct a new building.
