New Port Richey, Florida -- Shelter officials at the SPCA Suncoast in New Port Richey have indicated that the shelter has found itself in financial crisis and may be on the verge of closing its adoption center.

Unless donations pour in immediately to help care for the animals there, the facility will be forced to close in just a few weeks.

The SPCA Suncoast helps the community as roughly 85% of the shelters current adoptable animals are transferred from local animal services euthanasia list. Without the SPCA Suncoast's adoption program those animals will face time limits that most will not survive. Plus, pets that cannot be safely taken into the SPCA Suncoast also face being dumped along the side the road and abandoned.
