PETS OF THE WEEK- Good news!!! Miss Annabelle was adopted to a fantastic home with an older brother to run around ten acres with. 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 Nikki and Precious..
D#1027586 "Nikki", black mouth curr, female (has had a few litters), adult, approx. 50lbs. This dog was brought into the shelter by an AEO back on 5-29-30. Nikki has been at the shelter for over a month with no interest. Nikki has a fantastic personality with deep expressive eyes. She loves to lay in the shade next to you, the very next minute she will chase a ball down. Tons of fun! She has not shown any dog aggression while at the shelter. Nikki is still patiently looking for her forever home. She is available now to an approved adopter/ rescue, her adoption fee of only $10 includes spay, all shots up to date, one year rabies, and microchip!
D#1016177 “Precious” This beautiful girl was initially impounded into our shelter back on 10-8-15. She has been adopted out of our shelter 2 times - both adopters returned Precious - This girl has been returned through no fault of her own. This is the third time Precious has been at HCAS. Precious is a good girl, she loves attention, she's submissive, she will get in your lap and give kisses and loves a good belly rub. She needs to be in a cat free home. She is dog selective and would prefer to be the only dog as well (she likes all the attention for herself). Precious enjoys toys, walks well on leash, enjoys being brushed and most of all LOVES people. This girl deserves a home fit for a queen. Her adoption fee of only $10 takes her home today with all her shots (including one year rabies), and a microchip! (Already spayed)

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.
