Citrus County Animal Shelter Temporarily Suspends Community Cat Program

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on April 18, 2021

Citrus County Animal Services has suspended the Community Cat Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate Return (TNVR) program until Tuesday, April 27, 2021 due to a temporary increase in veterinary treatments and non-surgical responsibilities related to cruelty cases.

Citrus County Animal Shelter Temporarily Suspends Community Cat Program

It is recommended that healthy cats found outside are left alone during the period services are suspended at the shelter. Nationally, only 2% of cats are picked up by their owners when they end up in shelters but are up to 13 times more likely to make it home when allowed to remain in the community. Please allow these cats the best chance of finding their way home.

A special thanks to the volunteers, fosters, and community partners who support Animal Services, the shelter and the TNVR program each year. If you have any questions or concerns during the program suspension, please call the shelter at (352) 746-8400.
