New Port Richey Animal Control need more cat and dog adoptions before closing

There aren't that many left in need of homes of the 35 dogs and 14 cats remaining at the New Port Richey Animal Control in Florida which was slated to close last night on New Year's Eve. For the last two weekends pet adoptions have been successful according to the Facebook page of New Port Ric hey Animal Protection Unit.

Most of the dogs left are of the larger breeds, but according to Sharon McReynolds, the director of the New Port Richey Animal Protection Unit, more time has been given to the remaining four-legged companions with hopes they will all be fortunate enough to find new families:

"We have had 2 successful weekends of adoptions, however, there remain several animals at our kennel. The City has agreed to continue care and I have agreed to remain as Director until all the animals are placed which we believe will be no later than January 18, 2014.

Thank you to everyone for their support and please continue to help our remaining animals get great homes."

All of the dogs and cats are reported to be extremely friendly with great dispositions. Adoption fees are $12. for a dog and $10. for a cat.

Another "adoptathon" is scheduled for this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. Come meet the dogs and cats who are in desperate need of foster care or adoption at 10125 Land O'Lakes Boulevard in New Port Richey. You may call (727)-342-2237.
