Adoption Event

Saturday, September 9th, 2017 ​


Palm Beach County Convention Center 

This free event is the largest ever local pet adoption event that will feature close to 1,000 animals (dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, rabbits and guinea pigs) 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 30 local animal rescue organizations to save the lives of animals in Palm Beach County.  The past three C2Z adoption events found nearly 1,000 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.

Together we can save lives!
