Commissioners kick off Save 90% Plan at animal shelter

Land O' Lakes, Florida -- On Thursday, Nov. 8, Pasco County Commissioner Pat Mulieri visited the Pasco County Animal Services Adoption Center, along with Assistant County Administrator Dr. Suzanne Salichs, Animal Behavior Consultant Marilyn Wolf, Animal Advocates and Pet Rescuers Kimberly Kernon and Sharon Smith, and Photographer Jim Weber.

The visit allowed all present to tour the adoption center, visit with the animals, observe the renovations to Building C that are currently underway, and discuss the Save 90% Plan.

Pasco County Board of County Commissioners approved the Save 90% Plan at their Board of County Commission meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 7.

The Community Services Department/Pasco County Animal Services (PCAS) Division has set the goal to save as many adoptable animals as possible. PCAS staff is implementing several innovative measures and are in the process of creating a revised business plan in an effort to strive towards the goal of the SAVE 90% Program.

With an emphasis on giving shelter pets a second chance to find forever homes, PCAS is currently implementing eight of the eleven crucial program areas by partnering with pet rescue adopters and organizations, community residents, volunteers, government entities, and other community based organizations. 

"A new day has dawned for Pasco County Animal Services as we move to the Save 90% Plan. We are working more closely with volunteers and pet rescue groups to find more animals forever homes. We are so grateful to all who donate their time and labor to the animals. Together we can make a difference!” said Commissioner Pat Mulieri.
