Animal shelter issues urgent plea

Santa Rosa County’s animal shelter has issued an urgent plea for help from the community.  With a number of litters of dogs and cats being surrendered to the shelter, all of the kennels are full.  There is no more room.  Their list of needs includes volunteers, adopters and food donations.

“We encourage anyone looking for a dog to please adopt.  Our shelter is full and the animals need homes,” Tara Deaguilera, kennel technician at the shelter said.  “Right now adoptions are slow because people are on vacation.  Things slow down this time of year.”

The shelter is filled with dogs and cats of all ages and sizes, even seniors who are very well-behaved and house-trained.
