Animal Services Continues to Waive Fees on Adoptions

Alachua County Animal Services is at capacity and is continuing to offer fee-waived animal adoptions through Saturday, July 8, 2017. Those interested should visit the shelter headquarters (3400 N.E. 53rd Avenue, Gainesville) on Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Pet adopters and fosters must be 18 or older and show ID with proof of current address. If there are already pets in the home, the potential adopter must show proof that owned animals have current rabies vaccinations and are licensed. All cats and dogs available for adoption are vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter.

“We are currently in a high-intake period. If owners could delay surrendering animals or schedule the surrender, it would be helpful,” said Alachua County Animal Services Director Ed Williams. “Although we know that this is not always possible, we can sometimes offer suggestions or resources to help keep the animal(s) in their original homes.”

The shelter also has several kittens that are not old enough for adoption, but could be placed in a foster-to-adopt scenario.
