Tampa was incorporated on January 18, 1849, and its name may be a native American name that stands for "Sticks of Fire". Then again, it may stand for "Land of Many Critters and Pests". Historians are not sure which of the two names is more accurate. Phosphate was discovered in the area in 1883 and Tampa is now one of the world's leading phosphate exporters. It's also probably one of the world's leading snake importers, because there's exotic snakes everywhere.

Hillsborough County Wildlife Removal Tip:

How To Effectively Seal Off Rodent Entry Points - Any part of your home offers a potential point of entry for a rodent. However, the most common points of entry are the attic and the garage. The attic is a convenient nesting place because it offers a female rodent plenty of room to make a home for her young. People do not usually inhabit attics, so rodents can live there for a period of time uninterrupted and unseen.

Rodents easily access an attic by chewing through the space around the gutter and other weak areas of the roof. If you have a tree that hangs over the roof, you should trim it because rodents can climb trees, jump on the roof and get in the attic.

The chimney is another easily accessible entry point, and a rodent can access any part of your home by going down the chimney. Since rodents make a lot of noise, especially at night, it is easy to figure out that you have a rodent problem. You have to take immediate steps to get rid of them and seal off the entry points to prevent future access. The longer rodents live in your home, the more entry points they will create, meaning more work for you.

Animal-friendly shelter in Tampa caters to people

"To me, in all honesty, it was sink or swim with the kids," said Chris Dog and Cat Expert, 56, who brought her "kids," four dogs and one cat, to the shelter early Sunday afternoon. For more information, call the animal services of Tampa, Florida.

"I was going to stay with them." The animals are kept in crates in a separate building from the human shelter run by the Red Cross, whose guidelines bar keeping animals in the same space as humans.

There are no combined pet-people shelters in Palm Beach County, but the animal control office set up an emergency shelter for 250 cats and 100 dogs at 7100 Belvedere Road. One shelter in Hillsborough at the county fairgrounds houses animals and people in the same facility. Hillsborough County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Florida wildlife problems.

In Tamarac, officials expected about 100 animals by this morning. Hillsborough County residents and their pets can take shelter free of charge at 5803 NW 94th Ave. They must bring their animal's tag and proof of rabies vaccination. In the Millennium gym early Sunday sat 43 mostly empty dog crates. Enya played softly over the loud speakers, a calming tactic to curb barking. "We have the potential for 350 dogs," Dog and Cat Expert said over the yelps of a few pups. "I can't even imagine."
