Whisker Wonderland Pet Adoption Event

Alachua County Animal Resources (ACAR) is hosting a “Whisker Wonderland” pet adoption event to kick off its holiday adoption drive. The animal adoption event is on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023, from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The shelter will be open an hour later and stay open an hour and a half later than its regular schedule at the Animal Resources headquarters (3400 N.E. 53rd Ave., Gainesville). Pet adoption fees are waived for the event.

Whisker Wonderland is also a pet supply donation drive. ACAR is looking for donations of dog treats, leashes, dog collars (medium and large), blankets, pet waste bags, plastic cat carriers and catnip.

“Santa Paws is coming,” said ACAR Director Julie Johnson. “Santa Paws made a list, checked it twice, and every shelter pet is nice.”

Santa Paws will join ACAR to take adoption photos with families at the event.

Those not wishing to adopt are invited to the event to see the shelter and help spread holiday cheer.
