LOKI (formerly “Gotti”) came into the shelter last year as one of eight puppies that were underweight and had non-contagious mange. Now, he is a little over a year old and his previous adopter returned him because he played rough with her other dog who was older and not always looking to play. He is housebroken, walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. Loki is very handsome and is a staff favorite here, as his attitude is always upbeat and goofy. $10 adoption fee covers his rabies, county tag, boosters, neuter and microchip! His bags are packed and he's waiting for you!
RUMOR, DSH, grey and white in color, female, young adult. This cat was brought in by a citizen who stated his neighbor left the cat when he moved out. This is a friendly cat, well socialized and very pretty. She loves to get your attention by playfully rolling on her back and pawing at the air when you walk into the room. The staff lovingly nicknamed her "Roly-Poly". Adoption fee includes her spay, rabies, county tag, boosters and a microchip! Where else can you pay just $10 for endless loving and rolling entertainment?
If you are interested in adopting Elsa or Janet or any of the other wonderful dogs or cats waiting for new homes, please contact us at the Hernando County Animal Shelter @ 352-796-5062.

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.
