Inverness, Florida -- Citrus County Animal Services is asking for the public's help in meeting the needs of financially-challenged citizens who own pets.
Animal Services is asking citizens to deliver donations of pet food to their local food bank or to the Animal Services shelter in Inverness to help those residents keep their animals rather than surrender them to the shelter because they don't have the money to feed them.
Concerned citizens have been helping, but the food supplies have gotten low again. Cat food is especially in short supply (dry and canned pate').
Monetary donations may be mailed to Citrus County Animal Services, located at 4030 S. Airport Road in Inverness. The shelter is located at the end of Airport Road, which is off U.S. 41 between the Inverness Airport and the county auditorium/fairgrounds, just south of Inverness. For more information, please call 746-8400.
