In July, local business Alexander Real Estate announced that they would sponsor a number of adoption fees for animals housed at Citrus County Animal Services (CCAS).
Owner Joe Alexander presented the check to Citrus County Foundation for Animal Protection (CCFAP) volunteers at a recent adoption event held at Rural King in Crystal River.
CCFAP has an established “Sponsor Me Home” program, which includes a fund where community members can pre-pay adoption fees for pets at CCAS. Alexander Real Estate’s donation will pay to sponsor the fees of 21 pets.
After a nationwide, exhaustive, four-day search for Farrakhan Muhammad, members of the United States Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force, including task force members from the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, were able to take Muhammad into custody without incident.
“Arrests such as these are the precise reason why the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office partners with federal agencies,” said Citrus County Sheriff Mike Prendergast.
