  • Finally, many have asked what they can do to help. As many of you know Commissioner Bill Moss loved animals and was a pet owner himself. The family is asking that in lieu of flowers or gifts that his friends make donations to the Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary. They are Southeast Florida’s only “no-kill” animal sanctuary. A tax free donation can be made online at
  • A memorial fund is also being set up and will be used to help to collect funds for the Animal Sanctuary and we will be getting more details to everyone about the fund very soon.
