Pinellas County Animal Services News
April is upon us and hurricane season will be here before we know it. It is never too early to prepare or update your hurricane plan for family and pets. As each of you prepares for the season, please encourage your staff and clients to update their plans as well.
Animal Services is waiting with anticipation as summer approaches for the update and remodel of our 4 animal housing buildings. This facility was opened in 1995 and received no significant updates in that time. Our renovation project is expected to take 2 years so that we may continue operations during the process. Once complete all our animal housing buildings will be storm hardened up to a category 3 storm, insulated, air conditioned, and new kennel systems installed.
Thank you to all our licensing resellers for your contribution to our licensing and rabies control program. If you are not a license reseller and would like to become one, please contact Kelli Coppla at 727-582-2600.
