Red Hydrant moves, expands
Red Hydrant Pet Spa and Boutique is moving to a new expanded location at 21780 State Road 54 in Lutz.
The new space, located at Osprey Cove, is 4,700 square feet, and will feature all-breed dog grooming, natural and holistic treats, toys, and an assortment of goodies.
Red Hydrant also will add “indoor” doggy day care, off-leash playtime for pets. Each pet will be evaluated and assigned to a suitable and compatible playgroup. Each group will be closely supervised by trained coaches, who will help support safe play and assist in the acclimation of new dogs into each of the groups.
The new location has been up-fitted with special ventilation and a return air system that will support a clean and sanitary environment.

Support Our Troops get big boost from tax collector
The Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office recently raised nearly $7,700 for Support Our Troops, an organization dedicated to strengthening the morale and well-being of America’s active-duty troops and their families.
The money was raised through sales of the specialty license plate that benefits the organization as well as cash donations.
“The brave men and women who leave their families behind to protect our great nation deserve everything we can do for them,” said county tax collector Mike Fasano, in a release.
“These funds will ship hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of assistance to military families overseas, soldiers at the front, and help operate military kids’ summer camps,” said Martin Boire, president of Support Our Troops of Florida, in a release. “Looking out for the service members who are looking out for us is a tall moral obligation. And the generosity of the people of Pasco County will make a big impact at the personal level in the lives of our troops, their spouses, and their kids.”
Support Our Troops operates with a non-program overhead of less than 1 percent, which means 99 percent of donations go to programs and services, which directly impact the troops and their families.
