CLEARWATER – In the three weekends since the opening of the Humane Society of Pinellas satellite pet adoption center at Westfield Countryside, permanent homes have been found for 29 animals.
“So far since the opening of the temporary location the shelter has been able to find homes for an additional 20 cats, two rabbits, two ferrets and five gerbils. Our shoppers are excited to visit the pets and to help out the victims of Katrina and provide a home for homeless animals,” David Hibberd, general manager Westfield Countryside, said in a press release. The adoption center is located on the Upper Level main entrance near JCPenney (next to Fletcher Music).
The Humane Society of Pinellas has adoptable animals at the center, features information on the rescue of animals left homeless after Hurricane Katrina, educational displays and pet items for donations to raise money for the shelter.
All animals are vaccinated and spayed or neutered before they go up for adoption. Low-cost adoption fees include up-to-date vaccinations, microchip ID, and Pinellas County animal license.
