Manatee County Animal Services (MCAS) has had a rough time for a while now, but with a new director they are seizing the opportunity to be the compassionate community asset they can be with a little support from the community. After all, it IS all about the animals. So let’s put the past behind us and help support the efforts of this facility and staff as they struggle to overcome the mistakes of those now out of the picture, and work toward their stated goal of becoming a no-kill shelter and county.
In an effort to get some animals adopted… thus creating better conditions for those in the shelter and making room for those to come … MCAS is offering greatly reduced adoption rates through this Labor Day holiday. See the available animals here (NOTE: - The first few pages are pets still designated as LOST and not yet up for adoption, but if not claimed soon they will be available too.)
We advise you to look through ALL the photos and note more than one possibility because, as it says on their web site, "Pet adoptions are processed on a first come basis and it is possible that an animal listed may already be adopted when you visit the shelter. Please call 941-742-5933 with the animal ID number to find out the current status of a pet.”
AFTER the holiday, MCAS clinic is offering this great deal: “Microchips are vital. They are painless, take 1 second to insert and only cost $20.00 at our clinic. For more information and/or to make an appointment call our shelter at 941.747.8808 ext 302. (We aren't open until Wednesday due to the holiday weekend)”
If you want to encourage the folks at MCAS in their effort to do the best they can for these animals, you can also show your support by liking them on Facebook.
Remember: Do what you can with what you have in the place where you are at this moment.
MCAS is located at 305 – 25th Street West, Palmetto, FL 34221
