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.
