Pasco has storm shelter for owners and pets

COUNTYWIDE

Register if you and pet need storm shelter

Hurricane season is almost upon us, but there is a piece of good news for pet owners: The county's pet-friendly evacuation shelter is no longer limited to coastal residents in evacuation zone A and residents in mobile homes. The shelter — which accommodates pets at Pine View Middle and their owners across the street at Pine View Elementary — will be available this season to residents in evacuation zones B and C, too. But anyone who plans to use it must preregister, as the shelter can handle only 100 dogs and 200 cats. The forms can be obtained at any Pasco County library or online at http://pascocountyfl.net/PetPreReg.pdf. Pasco County Animal Services also needs volunteers to help set up, operate and clean the shelter in an emergency. To join the Pasco Animal Response Team, or PART, visit the Web site listed above or e-mail pascoanimalresponseteam@yahoo.com.

Classes demystify U.S. online 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 next 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.

Buses go on holiday schedule

County buses will provide fixed route service today, but will operate on the holiday schedule because it is Memorial Day. For information, call Pasco County Public Transportation at (727) 834-3322 or TTY toll-free at 1-800-338-5430 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., or visit www.ridepcpt.com.
