Donate to assist needy pet owners

Citrus County Animal Services is asking for the public’s help in meeting the needs of financially challenged citizens who own pets. The goal is to afford those residents the ability to feed their pets. 

Animal Services is asking citizens to deliver donations of dog and cat 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.

Monetary donations may be mailed to Citrus County Animal Services, 4030 S. Airport Road, Inverness, FL 34450. The shelter is at the end of Airport Road, off U.S. 41 between the Inverness Airport and the county auditorium/fairgrounds. 

Call 352-746-8400.
