On Saturday, Sept. 8, the South Florida Fairgrounds hosted the fifth annual Countdown 2 Zero pet adoption event. The day was all about pet adoption organizations coming together for a common purpose. The free event featured cats, dogs, rabbits and more.

Participating rescues included the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control, American Humane, Great Dane Rescue, Dolly’s Rescue, Luv-a-Pet, East Coast Rabbit Rescue, Forgotten Felines of Florida and many more. Together, the event featured more than 1,000 animals available for adoption.
