Find a new pet in Jacksonville

July 5, 2012 by  

The Patriotic Paws! Pet Adoption event will take place at Animal Care and Protective Services on July 7 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. The goal of the event is to facilitate 45 adoptions or more.

Those who come dressed in their military uniforms or those who dress in red, white, and blue will receive $20 adoptions. The event will also feature patriotic music, guitar and piano music, and children’s games. Those who adopt an animal can also have their picture taken with their new pet.

Everyone who attends can learn more about the services of Animal Care and Protective Services. In all likelihood, the organizers will be relying on Jacksonville printing companies to provide them with items such as brochures and flyers, which will help the organization to inform the public of this important event and to provide information about their available services.

Animal Care and Protective Services, in collaboration with the Friends of Jacksonville Animals, is currently running a campaign called Down2Zero. The campaign hopes to raise awareness about adopting shelter animals and how the general public can support their local shelters. There are so many pets in need of adoption, animal shelters throughout the country are overcrowded and many healthy animals are destroyed every day just because they cannot find owners. Events such as Patriotic Paws help to lower the number of animals put down and to match those animals with loving pet owners for a discounted price. The usual adoption rate is $60 for puppies, $20 for older dogs, $20 for adult cats, and $25 for kittens.
