Maddie's Pet Adoption Days
Pet lovers across Alachua County are getting the chance to take animals home this weekend and it's all for free.
Alachua County has been included in the Maddie's Pet Adoption Days event along with areas such as New York City and the San Francisco Bay area because of their record in reducing needless eithanasia of homeless cats and dogs over the past ten years.
"It's very heartwarming, our employees are really in this event, we decorated the place, we all dressed up, we're having a great time. It's a privilege to be invited into this. Like I said, there are only eight places in the entire country that have been invited and we're just so, so excited," said Jessica Lauginiger, investigator for the Alachua County Animal Services.
Maddie's Pet Adoption Days is the largest free pet adoption event in the nation.
