Animal Services Full House Free Pet Adoption Event

Thursday, February 16, 2017 3:45 PM

dogALACHUA COUNTY, FL – Alachua County Animal Services is hosting a one day “Full House” event offering free pet adoptions this Saturday, February 18, 2017, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Animal Services Headquarters (3400 N.E. 53rd Avenue, Gainesville).

Alachua County Animal Services’ dog kennels are currently under renovation. For this reason, the shelter is over capacity. They are offering the free adoptions to clear space, allowing them to take in and care for the stray dogs that continue to arrive at the facility.

Pet adopters must be 18 or older and show ID with proof of current address. If there are already pets in the home, the potential adopter must show proof that owned animals are current on rabies and license. All dogs and cats available for adoption are examined, vaccinated and spayed or neutered before leaving Animal Services.
