We are excited to announce our Fifth Annual Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event will place on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 inside the South Florida Fairgrounds, Expo Hall East in West Palm Beach, Florida
This free admission event is the largest ever local pet adoption event that will feature close to 1,000 animals (dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, rabbits and guinea pigs) seeking new families and homes.
Organized by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, the Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event is a collaborative effort of over 30 local animal rescue organizations to save the lives of animals in Palm Beach County. The past three C2Z adoption events found nearly 1,000 animals their forever homes.
"This is Palm Beach County’s largest one-day adoption event,” said Rich Anderson, CEO and Executive Director of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, "On this day, the local animal rescue community comes together, united in our efforts to save the lives of homeless animals in Palm Beach County. Together, through C2Z, we are working to save the life of every single adoptable animal in our community."
"The C2Z Adoption Event is just one of the many ways we come together to help support the important C2Z initiative," said Dianne Sauve, Director of Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control. “In addition to promoting the adoption of local rescue animals in need of loving homes, we also encourage everyone to spay/neuter their pets, as this is the most humane way to reduce the number of unwanted puppies and kittens born each day," stated Sauve.
Many of the rescue groups at the C2Z adoption event will be offering special discounts and adoption incentives, and all new pet parents will receive special gifts. In addition, rabies license tags will be complimentary for each adopted pet that will reside in Palm Beach County.
Our belief is that our community has the expertise, the means, and therefore, the moral obligation to aggressively implement strategies that will reduce the number of animals needing temporary shelter; thus, ending the euthanasia of adoptable animals in Palm Beach County. With the implementation of Countdown 2 Zero- the community as a whole is a large part of the solution.
