ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. – Alachua County Animal Resources and Best Friends Animal Society are hosting “Home for the Holidays” on Friday, December 9, and December 10, 2022, from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Alachua County Animal Resources shelter (3400 N.E. 53rd Avenue, Gainesville). During this national animal adoption event, adoption fees are waived. All animals are spayed or neutered and are up-to-date on vaccinations.
This event brings together welfare organizations across the country to help save more lives by connecting adoptable animals with their future families. Anyone considering adding a new pet to their family can make a difference by choosing to adopt.
“The overcrowding crisis is a nationwide concern, and we will need the community’s help for a long time,” said Shelter Supervisor Faren Healey. “We need people to step forward and adopt or become fosters with us. The more adoptions and fosters we have, the more lives we can save. If you’ve ever thought about adopting a pet, now is the time.”
“When you foster or adopt, you are not just saving that animal but freeing up space in our facility, so we can focus on saving more lives. Every animal deserves to be in a home for the holidays, so we are hopeful our community will join us for another amazing event with Best Friends Animal Society,” said EVO coordinator Sarah Gilley.
