Pinellas County Animal Services News
Spring has arrived and Pinellas County Animal Services is in active preparation mode. Hurricane season is one month away and Kitten Season has officially begun. Last week started the increase in kitten intake at Animal Services. Foster families are an essential part of the P.A.C.K team at Animal Services! By providing care to neonates and facilitating medical rehabilitation & socialization in their homes, Fosters are a critical extension of the shelter. Their help enables staff to focus on the constant influx of new cases entering the shelter daily. We are currently recruiting foster families who specialize in kitten care since “Kitten Season” is now in full swing!
As for Hurricane Season prep, our staff has received their Pet Friendly Shelter assignments and the equipment is being staged. Please remind your clients and staff to have a plan in the event of a storm, including any special foods or medications. The Pet Friendly Shelters this year are at Largo High School and Gibbs High School.
Stay prepared and stay safe.
