Town hall meeting for Hernando Co. Animal Services

Town hall meeting for Hernando Co. Animal Services

Spring Hill, Florida -- Hernando County Animal Services held a town hall meeting Tuesday in response to a recent audit of the department. 

In early August, an audit of the department found no wrongdoing by employees when a dog was put down 15 minutes after being dropped off at the shelter. The audit did find, however, understaffing and overcrowding issues. A panel of experts attended the Town Hall meeting to address questions and concerns. 

Panelists included:
