Pinellas — Bucco Bruce

Bucco Bruce is a male cat of undetermined age. Formerly, he roamed the streets freely. After a visit to Friends of Strays for vaccinations and neutering, shelter staff determined he’s more suited for indoor life. He’s friendly, social and loves to cuddle. He’s become acclimated to being surrounded by people and happily awaits meeting a forever family. Please know Bruce is toothless, yet healthy, and requires a wet food diet. For more information, contact Friends of Strays at 727-522-6566.

Hernando — Biscotti

Biscotti is a 1-year-old, brown and white male Terrier mix. He was found running loose in Brooksville and happily jumped into a Good Samaritan’s car for a ride to the shelter. He’s very active and loves people, but he’s not fond of other animals. Since he’s still a puppy, his high energy level makes him best suited to a home with a fence in yard. For more information, call Hernando County Animal Services at 352-796-5062.
