As Spring rolls around, pet adoptions tend to increase. There is always a growing demand for rabbits as Easter approaches. Marion County Animal Services Director Elaine Delorio says although spring is a great time to adopt a pet, she says people should be prepared for the long term commitment. Residents can view adoptable pets on the Marion County Animal Services’ website.
Alachua County Animal Services has been working to improve the release rate of the animals in their care; however, with cats reproducing throughout the year, an increase in the population of animals at the shleter has occured.
