to keep your pet safe in a storm

Hurricane season is upon us, but there is good news for Pasco pet owners: The county's pet-friendly evacuation shelter is now available to all residents in evacuation zones A, B and C, plus all mobile home residents. But there's a catch: You have to register now for a guaranteed spot when a storm strikes, as the shelter can handle only 100 dogs and 200 cats. The forms can be obtained at any Pasco County library or online at Click on "Important Disaster Information!" The shelter will accommodate pets at Pine View Middle School and their owners across the street at Pine View Elementary.

Learn to navigate government forms

The government is going high-tech, putting the forms for Medicaid benefits, food stamps and even IRS filings on the Internet. But residents may need some help to find those forms online and fill them out correctly. That's why the Pasco County Library System is offering a new slate of free "E-Government" classes to show people how to access and complete the forms. Classes start this month at every Pasco branch, and registration is requested. For a full schedule, pick up the summer calendar of events at any Pasco library. The classes are being offered, in part, through funding from the state's Institute of Library and Museum Services.


Party to benefit furry friends

Looking to party for a good cause? Captain Jack's Sunset Grill is hosting a shindig at 7 p.m. Thursday to raise money for the Suncoast Animal League, which took in 121 dogs from a puppy mill nearly two months ago. The nonprofit has spent more than $43,000 caring for those dogs, and medical costs are climbing. The party will feature a live auction, silent auction, 50/50 raffle and food and drink specials. Dogs are welcome to the event, as long as they're on a leash and have current rabies vaccinations. Captain Jack's is at 21 Oscar Hill Road in Tarpon Springs, reachable by land or sea (free boat slips available). Call (727) 944-3346 for information.
