SYNLawn’s donation of artificial pet grass at a Florida shelter helps transform the lives of dogs and increase pet adoption rates.
PORT ST. LUCIE, FL — In hope of creating a happier environment for dogs in need of forever homes, SYNLawn, the world’s long-standing powerhouse artificial grass manufacturer, and Miami-based distributor SYNLawn South Florida donated and installed artificial pet grass at the Humane Society of St. Lucie County, Inc.
As part of SYNLawn’s yearlong partnership with SPCA International, the company recently completed one of eight landscape donation projects currently in the works at SPCA International partner shelters. The animal shelter in Port St. Lucie, Florida, houses approximately 150 animals, including 65 to 75 dogs. With the help of SYNLawn, the shelter added a third play yard by transforming an unused field into a fenced-in area where small dogs can play and exercise outside.
“Having a fenced area like this where dogs can run free really helps us reduce or even eliminate some common behavioral problems like digging, chewing and barking. The dogs’ behaviors have improved so much they become more adoptable,” said David Robertson, Director of Administration for Humane Society of St. Lucie County, Inc. “We’ve been able to increase our adoption rates because we’ve had healthier, happier and better-behaved animals. Whenever we can get one more into a happy home, it makes it so much better for all of us.”

SYNLawn’s environmentally friendly product line is safe for animals. The customizable pet system can be designed for both small and large pet areas and utilizes organic, odor-absorbing crystals that help reduce smells from pet waste by up to 80 percent. The artificial pet turf stays clean in any climate and keeps dogs free of mud and dirt too, which is helping these shelter dogs look their best.
SYNLawn is committed to bringing awareness about pet adoption and the needs of homeless pets by offering financial contributions and product donations to SPCA International. The artificial grass company is offering $250 off pet turf installations to customers who have rescued a pet from an animal shelter. With product donations like this one, SYNLawn hopes to continue to transform the lives of dogs, volunteers and staff at the SPCA International.
