TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Citrus County Animal Services (CCAS) has suspended all non-emergent dog intakes and adoptions until further notice in response to an upper respiratory outbreak at the shelter.

CCAS will remain open for intake and care of sick or injured dogs, cruelty case intakes, cat intake and adoptions, product and license sales and to return stray dogs to their homes.
