To educate Tallahassee area residents about the need for spay and neuter surgeries and to give financial assistance to residents who otherwise cannot afford the surgery cost to prevent pet overpopulation and ultimately euthanasia.
Be The Solution, Inc. was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2007 by Gerry and Tim Phipps due to their concern about the growing pet overpopulation problem in Tallahassee. They were constantly finding stray animals wherever they went and would either keep them as their own pets or find a home for them. Gerry then had the thought that: “If more people would get their pets fixed we could stop the problem from the start by reducing the number of unwanted litters born in our community”. The Phipps share the belief that an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.
