On Monday, October 6th, I learned from a fellow REALTOR® that our Humane Society was closing at the end of the month. This morning I got verification from reading our local newspaper. Per the St. Augustine Record's article today:
"Humane Society Director Cindy Bishop is working to adopt out the nearly 200 animals at the shelter. She said she plans to call rescue groups in the area, and she is researching the possibility of transporting animals to Humane Societies in surrounding counties."
If you have been thinking about adopting a pet, now is the time. Please tell everyone you know. Many of you know our wonderful cat, Kahlua. We adopted her from this Humane Society.
Please stop by the Florida East Coast Humane Society at 1665 Old Moultrie Road before October 31, 2008. They are closed Sundays and Mondays. Here are their hours and phone number:
Tuesday thru Friday 10 to 6
Saturday 10 to 5
Closed Sunday and Monday
