Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We primarily serve Citrus and the surrounding counties, but we have successfully adopted out to families as far south as Naples and as far north as Jacksonville !!
About Our Shelter:Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS) was formed by a team of concerned citizens who are dedicated to advocating animal welfare, community involvement and humane education. Our mission is to build awareness in the community about the shelter, increase the adopt-ability of shelter animals, highlight our adoptable pets, work to increase pet adoptions and foster alliances with rescues.
FOCCAS is a registered charity in the State of FL and has 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. We have no paid employees or directors. We are 100% volunteer-based. All donations are used to help the animals. Our volunteers provide their own transportation for themselves and shelter pets to adoption events, veterinary care, and rescue groups. Often our pets require extensive medical care for conditions or injuries that are beyond the scope of shelter medicine. Surgeries and x-rays are the most common. We rely entirely on donations and fundraising efforts.
Citrus County Animal Services is the only open-door shelter in Citrus County that takes "all comers". No matter what condition the animal is in that comes through the door - surrendered, found, abandoned - the shelter will try and save the animal and find him/her a loving, permanent home.
Come Meet our Pets:We are very active in Citrus county and our schedule of events and locations changes weekly. Please visit our Events webpage to see where we will be this week !!
Our Adoption Process:All adopters must be at least 18 years old (or accompanied by an adult) and either own their own home or have written permission and/or a rental agreement that specifies they can have pets on the property.
Dogs (all ages) have a flat adoption fee of $60 if they need to be spayed/neutered or $30 if already altered. Fees include rabies, distemper/parvo & Bordetella vaccinations, heartworm test, worming, Capstar for fleas and Microchipping.
County residents must also purchase a county license for $5.
All dogs adopted from the shelter qualify for our free 6 week basic training classes, please ask for the class schedule at the front desk when adopting if you wish to sign up.
