PETS OF THE WEEK- Richie and Mabel are both currently available for adoption at Hernando County Animal Services. We have 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.
D#1025632 “Richie” Husky/ cattle dog mix, buff in color with a touch of red, male-neutered, adult – 1 ½ yrs old, approx. 50lbs, Heartworm negative. Richie was originally brought in by a couple of hunters off Croom rd back on 12-5-14. He was adopted from our facility and returned to no fault of his own (adopter stated apartment was too small). Richie was then adopted out again and was just recently returned due to a bite on a family member. Richie is a young and playful boy who can be mouthy at times, and needs to learn how to not play so rough. He is very sweet and needs a home with structure and some obedience/ training and a place where he can run off his puppy energy. We have not seen any aggression here at the shelter with staff, citizens or other animals. Richie loves hanging out in the play yard and is very eager to please. This handsome fella knows basic commands, loves to fetch, and has the cutest facial expressions. Come on in and take him for a spin around the yard, he'll be sure to wiggle right into your heart!
C#1026913 "Mabel" . Black short hair female, young adult about a year old. This cat was brought into the shelter by an AEO who picked the cat up on Holiday Dr. in Spring Hill. She is very silly, and we almost named her "skunk" due to getting a white stripe of clay from her litter pan down her back the first day she was here. She has a very distinctive "meow" and loves to sing, sometimes hearing her clear down the hall. Mabel is also a trickster, hanging her paw out of the cage in hopes of catching your sleeve as you walk by!
