Tax Collector Mike Fasano announces that $12,780.33 was raised during the month of June 2023 to benefit Cindy’s Pets, one of the featured charities of the month at the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office. Cindy’s Pets was created to “help seniors and their pets,” particularly those seniors who are part of Pasco County’s Senior Services Program and are recipients of Meals on Wheels.
“When we found out that seniors in the Meals on Wheels program were feeding their pets some of their delivered food because they could not afford to buy pet food, we started Cindy’s Pets to provide food for the pets,” comments founder Dr. Missy Nurrenbrock. “With the generous help of Mike Fasano, Tax Collector, and the Tax Collector’s Office, Cindy’s Pets has been able to feed over 300 pets of seniors on the Meals on Wheels program in Pasco County for the past 12 years. Thank you, Mike Fasano, and your staff, for your generous donations which have allowed the seniors’ pets to be well-fed each month!”
“Pasco County is home to some of the best charitable organizations in the state,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “We support many that are well-known, but we also take great pleasure in turning the spotlight on smaller charities that may not receive the attention they deserve. Cindy’s Pets is an organization founded and run by loving and compassionate individuals who truly care about the people and animals they serve. I applaud Dr. Missy and Mike Nurrenbrock, and their contingent of volunteers, who make sure that pets of the elderly receive good quality food each month.”
