Palm Beach County’s sixth annual Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event is set for Saturday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Expo Center East in the South Florida Fairgrounds.
The free event is the county’s largest annual pet adoption event and will feature hundreds of animals seeking new families and homes. Animals up for adoption include dogs, cats and rabbits of all ages.
Organized by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, the adoption event is a collaborative effort of more than 20 local rescue and partner groups dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals in Palm Beach County.
Admission and parking are free. Many of the rescue groups will offer special discounts and adoption incentives, and all new pet parents will receive swag bags filled with special gifts, including rabies tags compliments of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control. There will also be demonstrations and a children’s activity area.
