Summer Lovin' Adopt-A-Thon Clearing Out Cages at ACAS
Like in the movie Grease, happy-ever-afters do happen---Even for our furry friends.
Alachua County Animal Services' Annual Summer Lovin' Adopt-a-thon event is continuing to empty many cages filled with loveable adoptables.
Animal services has waived all adoption fees this weekend and all adopted pets get a goodie bag with some essentials to take home.
Veterinary students have also been preparing for weeks, to make sure adopted pets are ready to go home when you fall in love with them.
"We've been in here helping do surgery for over 100 animals in the shelter, just this week alone, to make sure they were all healthy and ready for adoption," said Patricia Diskant, President of the University of Florida SCASV.
The timing for this event couldn't have come at a better time, as animal services is making their last push to win the Rachael Ray $100,000 Challenge.
As of today, their adoption count for the summer is just over 1,200.
