Queso loves chips but not salsa. He can open a piñata with a wink and a smile. His Cinco de Mayo parties start March 23rd. If he head butts you, you would pu...t it on your resume. His litter box cleans itself. Mice have him listed as their emergency contact. Catnip grows because he says so. His meows have inspired symphonies. He doesn't always look for a forever family, but when he does, he goes to Petsmart. Come to Petsmart on Tarpon Bay Blvd in North Naples today and meet the most interesting cat in the world. #inthe239 #ncaqueso #inthe239 #nokillnaplesfl #naplescatalliance #adoptqueso

Dominick took a break from campaigning to attend a presentation, at the Wholesome Hound, about the dangers of the cane toad to dogs. The veterinarian from Animal Specialty Hospital stressed the importance of rinsing out the dog's mouth right away, and getting the dog to the nearest vet. Exposure to the toxic cane toad can cause excessive salivation and then seizures. The cane toad is a non-native species that was brought to the sugar cane fields of Florida in an attempt to control pests in the sugar cane fields. The native Southern toad has ridges or crests between the eyes. The cane toad has a smooth head with no crests between the eyes. #russo4countyjudge #inthe239 #wholesomehoundnaplesfl #animalspecialtyhospitalnaplesfl

Judicial candidate Dominick Russo's roots are planted firmly in Collier County. Having grown up in Naples, seen here graduating from Naples High School in 1984, he has been a part of this sleepy coastal community's growth and development. He knows the history, he's lived it. He knows the people, he's one of them. He knows the culture, he's immersed in it. His roots run deep and so does his desire to uphold the constitutional rights for the people of Collier County. Vote Dominick Russo for county Judge on August 28, 2018. **Fun Fact - The intersection in the background is Goodlette Road and Golden Gate Parkway.

Rescuing abandoned and homeless animals is one of the many ways Dominick helps his community. It has been so cold lately that we found ourselves bundling up with whatever was in the truck, hence the Santa hat and beach towels, lol! Dominick provided hot roasted chicken meals for the cats he feeds every night, in the industrial park, in hopes it would help them through the cold nights. Trapping the kittens became top priority and in the past two weeks, 27 cats and kittens were trapped and rescued from a life on the street. If the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way it’s animals are treated, so can the greatness of a man, and that man is judicial candidate Dominick Russo. #voterusso #russo4countyjudge #colliercounty #inthe239 #naplesfl
