Volunteers needed to care for Dogs and cats at SPCA
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals/SPCA of Hernando County needs volunteers. Its local shelter, at 9075 Grant St., west of Brooksville, has more than 150 dogs and cats that need care, many that have been abandoned or dropped off due to foreclosures and the economic crisis. Those interested in volunteering can help out as little as one day a week. Call Nancy at (352) 345-8498. For information or directions to the shelter, call (352) 596-7000.

Parking also will be closed along part of Liberty, from Brooksville Avenue toward Magnolia Street, and on Brooksville Avenue from Liberty to the southern boundary of the water tank.
