The fifth annual Countdown 2 Zero adoption event will take place Saturday, Sept. 8 at its new location at the South Florida Fairgrounds, Expo Center East in West Palm Beach.
This is the county’s largest annual pet adoption event and will feature nearly 1,000 animals including dogs, cats, rabbits and birds seeking new families and homes.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is organized by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control and is a collaborative effort of more than 20 local animal rescue organizations.
The past four C2Z adoption events found more than 1,300 animals their forever homes.
Admission and parking are free and many of the rescue groups will be offering special discounts and adoption incentives. All new pet parents will receive special gifts, including free rabies tags from Animal Care & Control.
