Free Pet Adoptions This Weekend
Published May 31st, 2013
A $600,000 grant awarded to Alachua County makes it one of the eight areas in the country to be able to have free adoptions this weekend.
By adopting these animals...rescues will get some help too.
Seven shelters from around Alachua County will be participating in the Maddie's Pet Adoption Days this weekend.
Every pet is free to adopt for qualified homes.
For every pet adopted, rescues will receive $500 and if you adopt older animals or ones with special medical needs, even more is dispersed to the shelters.
For rescuers, it's all about giving the animals a good home.
Adoptions will be taking place at five different locations around Gainesville throughout the weekend.
