BROOKSVILLE - Visitors who walk through the doors of Hernando County Animal Services now have furry faces to greet them.
Earlier this week, animal services announced a cat viewing room had been completed. According to the county, the new room was donated by Rick Silvani of PetLuv Nonprofit Spay and Neuter Clinic.
"We're very grateful for his generosity," said Managing Veterinarian Dr. Lisa Centonze.
With kitten season in full force, Centonze said the new room is a great way for visitors to interact with their potential new pets.
Centonze said the new space still needs furnishing. Donations on Animal Services' wish list are cat beds, cat houses, toys such as rubber balls, play mice, new food and water dishes, kitten food, scratching posts, towers and play tunnels.
All cats and kittens are half-price through the end of the month, with adoption fees for kittens at $20 and adult cats at $10.
The fee includes sterilization, as well as a county license, necessary testing, vaccines and parasite treatment.
