Kickoff: Saturday, Saturday 24th


The ninth annual Countdown 2 Zero (C2Z) Mega Pet Adoption Event will be held from September 24th through October 1st! We are excited to be back in person after 2 years of being fully virtual. This year the event will be hosted in 2 locations on September 24th - Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control. Both host shelters will open their doors to local rescues in an effort to save more lives than ever before! You can view participating rescues here. You’ll also be able to view which host shelter each rescue will be at when we get closer to the event. Adoption promotions will continue through October 1st. Be sure to follow us on the Countdown 2 Zero Facebook page for updates. Hundreds of adoptable animals will be looking for homes so check back for details on how to find your new best friend!

Organized by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care & 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 eight C2Z adoption events found nearly 2,300 animals their forever homes.

Many of the rescue groups will offer special discounts and adoption incentives, and new pet parents will receive an adopter goody bag* featuring items from some of our generous sponsors.  In addition, rabies license tags will be complimentary for each adopted pet that will reside in Palm Beach County.

*Goody bags available during the in-person event on September 24th only, while supplies last
