Since 2006, Flow Yoga has been the Place for Mindful Movement in Port Richey. 2006, Flow Yoga has been the Place for Mindful Movement in Port Richey. From 2007 to April of this year, the studio owner, Faith Bevan, and its patrons cared for a savvy, social, feral cat, Bella, who became its mascot. During that time, Bella inspired the rescue, homing, veterinary care, and spay/neuter/vaccination of other feral and stray cats who came looking for help at Flow. Now stray and homeless animals in the neighborhood will find shelter and services at the newly opened, nearby Runaways Animal Rescue Shelter, 8020 Washington Street, Port Richey 34668. The new shelter can accommodate 20 dogs and 50-60 cats.
