Citrus County Animal Services officials said this week they were appealing to citizens to remember the pets of those who must rely on local food banks for help during these difficult economic times.
More residents than ever now depend on help from the community’s many food banks to help them get by.
Animal Services is asking citizens to deliver donations of pet 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.
Animal Services Shelter Operations Manager, Pattie Amon said concerned citizens have been helping, but the food supplies are low. On behalf of the owners and their animals who have been helped by donations, she thanked all those who have contributed for their continuing generosity.
