Citrus County Foundation for Animal Protection (CCFAP) is raising community awareness and funds to purchase a state-of-the-art digital x-ray machine to help Citrus County Animal Services and Care Center (CCAS) better serve the medical needs of the animals that move through the Care Center.
Currently, CCAS sends animals off-site for needed x-rays, which takes staff time, stresses the animals and can delay care for the most critical of patients.
In the past year, approximately 40 patients were sent off-site for x-rays totally over $20,000 spent for these diagnostics. The Care Center veterinarian has to choose which animals are the highest priority to receive x-rays when taking into consideration budget and time to receive care.
