Pet of the week | Aster
Aster is an 8-year-old Jack Russell mix and still has a lot of spring in her step. She has been spayed and microchipped and is current on all her vaccinations. Since Aster is a senior dog, her adoption fee is only $30. Inquiries about adopting Aster or other dogs and cats can be made at the Humane Society of the Nature Coast shelter at Wiscon and Mobley roads, Brooksville. Visiting hours at the shelter are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The shelter is run strictly on donations; no government subsidies are provided. Adoption fees are $100 for dogs, $40 for adults cats and $65 for kittens, and cover the costs for all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping. For information, call (352) 796-2711.
