Citrus County Animal Services available only by appointment through July 24

Due to increased workload from a large cruelty case, the Citrus County Animal Shelter (located at 4030 South Airport Road, Inverness, FL) is closed to the public.

Services will be available by appointment only through Saturday, July 24, 2021.

Citrus County Animal Services (CCAS) is urgently seeking adopters, fosters, and rescuers to reduce the existing population of animals in their care and make room for this new group of animals. Adoption fees continue to be waived until further notice.

Those who cannot adopt are encouraged to consider fostering.

CCAS also asks that all approved rescue partners come forward to help, if possible.

The animals available for adoption at CCAS are listed on the Citrus County website: www.citrusbocc.com/departments/community_services/animal_services/find_a_pet.php. This site is updated in real-time and has the most up-to-date listings of animals available for adoption, so check back frequently for updates.

If you would like to make an appointment, call (352) 746-8400 or email colleen.yarbrough@citrusbocc.com.
