7th Annual Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event
Saturday, September 26th, 2020
10am to 4pm at the South Florida Fairgrounds
The seventh annual Countdown 2 Zero (C2Z) Adoption Event presented by the Lois Pope LIFE Foundation will take place on Saturday, September 26, 2020 from 10 am to 4 pm inside the air-conditioned South Florida Fairgrounds (East Expo Center) in West Palm Beach. 193 animals (including dogs, cats, rabbits, sugar gliders, and hamsters) were adopted last year and we hope to save even more this year!
This free event is the largest ever local pet adoption event that will feature close to 1,000 animals (dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and more) 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 20 local animal rescue organizations to save the lives of animals in Palm Beach County. The past six C2Z adoption events found over 1,500 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.
Both admission and parking are free for the Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event. Many of the rescue groups 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.
