Hernando Pet of the Week for Oct. 13

By Jean Hamilton, Times Staff Writer
PET OF THE WEEK
Katie is a young, spunky shepherd mix and came to the shelter from Webster. She is participating in the Heel to Heal program at the Hernando County Women?€š€™s Correctional Facility and is working with trusties and trainer John Gore from New Sentry K9 Services to graduate with good citizenship and proficiency in 40 commands. Katie loves playing outdoors, so an active family would be a good match for her. She has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and has a one-year county animal license. Inquiries about adopting Katie or other dogs and cats can be made at Hernando County Animal Services, 19450 Oliver St., Brooksville. Visiting hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Adoption fees are $50 for adult dogs over 25 pounds, $70 for puppies and small dogs under 25 pounds, $25 for heartworm positive and senior dogs, $20 for adult cats and $40 for kittens. For information, call (352) 796-5062. Visit the website at hernandocounty.us/animal/adoptions.
