Hernando Animal Services: Cat room complete, donations still needed!

Hernando County, Florida-- Animal Services has completed the addition of a new cat-viewing room in the front of their facility, but staff members say they still need a few things before it's fully finished.

"We are so greatful that we now have a great way for families to observe the kittens and spend some time getting acquainted with their new pet," said Managing Veterinarian Dr. Lisa Centonze.

Centonze is thankful because a donation from Rick Silvani of PetLuv made the room a reality, but it looks like the kittens could still benefit from county-members' generosity. 

"Everyone loves watching the cats play, but we could definitely use some toys and other items to enrich their lives while they're here," said Dr. Centonze.

Here is a list of possible donations:

  • Cat beds
  • Cat houses/ hide houses
  • Rubber Balls, play mice, toys etc.
  • New food and water dishes
  • Kitten food and canned kitten food (pate type not shredded) Scratching posts - all types welcomed Play tunnels Cat towers for the kittens to play on

Whether you make a donation or not, anyone who has been considering a new kitten or cat can save on adoptions with a new special set to last through July 31. 

The facility announced its new "Brooke" special Monday. Named after a shelter cat who is particularly fond of Dr. Centonze, staff members say the special offers kittens for $20, and adult cats for $10. The price includes spaying, neutering, testing, vaccinations, and treatment for parasites.
