Rescued animals up for adoption
On Feb. 10, authorities seized 22 dogs and several other animals from Cynthia Cuervo, of Town 'N Country, due to the deplorable conditions of her home. Cuervo was under court order not to be in possession of any animals, due to past instances of abuse. The dogs, as well as a cat, rabbit and birds seized from Cuervo are available for adoption through Hillsborough County Animal Services. The $200 fee, which includes neutering and spaying, microchipping, vaccinations and a health check, is slightly higher than normal, but the funds will help pay for rehabilitation for dogs seized from the property that need medical treatment.
