New Port Richey, Florida -- Tuesday, Dec. 31 is your last chance to drop off animals at the New Port Richey Animal Control facility, before it closes its doors.

10 News previously reported it would be the last opportunity to adopt animals from the shelter, however, acting City Manager of New Port Richey, Lisa Fierce, says any animals left after the deadline will still be available for adoption.

"Any animals remaining at the shelter after the the 31st will not be euthanized. They will be cared for and will be eligible for adoption, but the facility will no longer be taking in new animals," Fierce explained.

As of Dec. 20, the shelter had 25 dogs and 14 cats in need of forever families. There were also three puppies and 10 kittens waiting to be adopted, but updates from the facility Monday evening said there were only three animals left.

All the lovable animals have been fixed, micro-chipped and have a clean bill of health.

The dogs are $12 to adopt and the cats are $10.

You can pick out your potential new pet at the Animal Control shelter located at 10125 Land O' Lakes Blvd. (US Hwy 41) in Land O' Lakes. You can also call 727-342-2237.
