The Citrus County Clear the Shelter event will take place on August 17 with extended hours at the Shelter at 4030 S. Airport Rd., Inverness, starting at 8am with vendors, OMG Pretzels, and giveaways (for adopters and visitors). This event will highlight the over 200 pets at the Shelter waiting for adoption. During the event there will be tips and exhibitions from dog trainers and dog playgroup exhibitions. Adoption fees will be waived (Citrus County Residents will be required to pay $10 license fee). Come and support the Citrus County animal shelter while having a fun day out with friends and family! For more information about this local event please call the Citrus County Animal Shelter at: 352-746 -8400.                                                 

Citrus County Animal Shelter was under quarantine for a month due to a virus outbreak, which meant fewer adoptions during the month of July. The shelter is now open and virus free, so it is the time to get all of our adoptable animals into their new homes so they can live the life they deserve.

Clear the shelters is a national program that News Channel 8 participates in each year along with its local shelter partners. “WFLA is committed to finding forever homes for pets in need. NBC and Telemundo stations across the country will team up for the annual ‘Clear the Shelters’ animal adoption drive. All participating shelters will offer fee-free or reduced rate adoptions on Saturday, August 17, 2019.
