PETS OF THE WEEK- Good news!!! Callie and Archie have both been adopted! However, Hernando County Animal Services still has lots of dogs and cats at our facility that are in need of good loving forever homes. Please feel free to stop by and take a look around- you never know… You might just find your new best friend! In fact, let me introduce you to Annabelle and Macy...
D#1027739 “Annabelle” Bully mix, tan in color, female, older adult, approx. 45lbs (thin). This girl was impounded back on 6-10-15. She was pretty shy at first, but has since come around to a playful but quiet girl. This girl has had a difficult life, she has some skin tags and some old age related bumps, in addition to some scarring on her face and parts of her body. She is currently under the treatment of the vet staff. Despite this, Annabelle is very sweet, appears to be housebroken, enjoys attention and likes to go for walks. This girl is very much deserving of a new forever home to spend her days. Her adoption fee is only $10, which comes with her spay, all current shots (including one year rabies), and a microchip!

Hernando County Animal Services (HCAS) has recently been inundated with dogs, cats and other animals. The shelter is currently beyond capacity and in crisis mode. Adopters and rescues are needed to help get these animals into loving fur-ever homes.
"We have 58 dog kennels and we are over our limit by 34 dogs," Shannon Finch, shelter coordinator explained. "The shelter is also caring for numerous fish, nursing mamma cats and babies, under aged kittens, chickens, ducks and a goat."
A series of recent criminal and non-criminal events led to animal enforcement officers impounding an unforeseen number of animals. This has heavily impacted the shelter that was already operating over capacity. Many of these animals are on a 10-day safe keeping hold, which means they are currently not available for adoption. This creates an urgency to adopt the other animals that are property of the county and awaiting their new family.
