12/25 UPDATE: New Port Richey Animal Protection Unit Friends

I believe we have 7-8 right now for dogs... They are in our Urgent Dogs Album. We have One cat, but are allowing a few local rescues to join us with dogs and cats as well to try and help them out too.

Land O'Lakes, Florida - They are the sweetest faces in the world, and they're hard to resist. Loving animals who need a second chance at life, and now need your help.

New Port Richey animal control is having to close its doors, which means 35 dogs and 14 cats need homes by the end of the month or sadly, they will have to be euthanized.

"They are our babies," said Sharon McReynolds from animal control. "They all have stories to tell, and they need homes."

The deadline is December 31st for the adoptions. And, the great thing is that if you have family in town for the holidays, the shelter will hold the animals until after the holidays are over.

The dogs are medium to large in size and very loving. They have wonderful dispositions and would make perfect family pets, along with adorable cats which also range in size.

With tears in her eyes, Sharon talked about losing what she calls her "babies".

"I love them all. I want them to have homes," said Sharon.

The dogs are $12 to adopt and the cats are $10. The animal control organizers are hoping you'll come visit the kennel this weekend. They are open on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm at 10125 Land O'Lakes Boulevard in Land O'Lakes.

For further information on these animals you can call 727-243-4028 or email
