Hernando County Animal Services and the Humane Society of the Nature Coast are joining with the Elks Lodge to sponsor a very special pet adoption event on Saturday, February 16, 2013. The event will be held from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Elks Lodge located at 14494 Cortez Boulevard, Brooksville, Florida.
Dogs and cats from Hernando County Animal Services, the Humane Society of the Nature Coast and various animal rescue organizations will be available for immediate adoption at the event. All adoption fees will be one-half the regular fee, and a voucher will be issued to each pet adopter in order to receive a complete refund upon proof of spay or neutering. At Saturday’s event, the adoption fee for dogs will be $25 and for cats, the fee will be $20. These fees will be refunded to the adopter upon providing proof of sterilization.
This community event is the first one organized since the hiring of Dr. Lisa Centonze, the new Managing Veterinarian for Hernando County Animal Services. “We encourage our residents to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to find a new loving friend for their family and to provide a forever home for one of these lovable pets,” said Dr. Centonze. “We plan to have many more of these types of events in the future.”
The public is invited to come to the pet adoption event on Saturday and not only find a new pet, but also meet Dr. Centonze and the new Animal Services Volunteer Coordinator Donna Black. For more information about the pet adoption event, please call Hernando County Animal Services at (352) 796-5062.
