saves more than 350 cats and kittens per year from being euthanized and have also
altered, dewormed, defleaed, cleaned the ears and given rabies shots to thousands of

Resolution 2021-14 Honoring Dr. Dennis Wilfong – The City of Brooksville recognized the accomplishments and honored the memory of Dr. Dennis Wilfong. Dr. Wilfong, well-known for his inventions in surge protection products also served as the City’s Ambassador of Commerce and Employment from 2009 to 2018. Dennis was empowered by his walk with Christ and blessed with a generous and nurturing spirit to give endlessly to his family and the community around him.
