The inaugural Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event is a collaborative effort between local animal rescues in an effort to save lives, and will take place on Saturday, September 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach. This free event will present more than 600 of Palm Beach County's adoptable dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, birds, and furry companion animals available at discounted adoption fees. To date, there are more than 28 local animal rescue organizations participating in this exciting event with the combined goal to find 300 animals their forever homes.
This much-anticipated event will have the "Take Me Home Zone," where every new parent will receive a great gift bag stocked full of items for their new pet, free rabies tags to new adopters provided by Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, a free on-site pet shampoo sponsored by the Pet Groomerie, a Picture Perfect Photo Area sponsored by The Little Blue Dog, a Pet Behavior and Training Area and so much more.
Countdown 2 Zero is public/private community collaboration, initiated by Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, the Board of County Commissioners and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League to bring animal welfare organizations together and end the euthanasia of adoptable animals in Palm Beach County.
