7th Annual Countdown 2 Zero Virtual Adoption Event
September 26th - October 3rd
Kickoff: Saturday, September 26th, 2020 from 10am-4pm
Each year, dozens of local animal rescue groups join together for the Countdown 2 Zero (C2Z) Adoption Event - Palm Beach County’s largest one-day adoption event- in an effort to save the lives of hundreds of animals. Due to COVID-19, the 7th Annual Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event will be held as a virtual event.
Organized by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control, the Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event will have a Virtual Kick-Off Celebration event on Saturday, September 26th. During this virtual event, live and pre-filmed videos will be posted on social media. There will also be a “Virtual Vendor Village” website between 10am-4pm, that allows attendees to connect with participating partner groups and sponsors from wherever they are! The Live Video Chat rooms enables people to ask rescue groups participating in C2Z questions and can schedule an adoption appointment prior to making the drive to a shelter location. The 7th Annual C2Z Adoption Event will be from September 26, 2020 to Saturday, October 3, 2020. The past six C2Z adoption events found over 1,500 animals their forever homes.
Many of the partnering animal rescue organizations are and will be operating by appointment only. By visiting Countdown2Zero.org, you will be able to see the various rescue organizations, link to their website to view their adoptable list, and schedule an adoption appointment. Adoption fees, policies, and COVID-19 protocols vary by organization.
“For 2020, C2Z will have a different feel - however, the mission is still the same - saving the lives of animals in Palm Beach County. All of the rescues involved are committed to making sure that those in our community still have the opportunity to participate in the largest pet adoption event in Palm Beach County… and in light of our current circumstances we have the opportunity to create a fun, virtual event,” says Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
Rescue organizations participating in the 7th Annual C2Z Adoption Event include: Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League; Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control; Adopt A Cat Foundation; Ali Cat Rescue; Barky Pines Animal Rescue; Big Dog Ranch Rescue; Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida; Palm Beach Parrot Rescue
