The sixth annual Countdown 2 Zero (C2Z) Adoption Event, presented by the Lois Pope Life Foundation, is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center. This free event is the county’s largest annual pet adoption event and will feature hundreds of animals (dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and more) from Palm Beach County seeking new families and homes.
Organized by the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control, the Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event is a collaborative effort of more than 20 local rescue and partner groups dedicated to saving the lives of Palm Beach County animals. The past five C2Z adoption events found more than 1,300 animals their forever homes.
Both admission and parking are free for the Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event. Many of the rescue groups will be offering special discounts and adoption incentives, and all new pet parents will receive swag bags filled with special gifts, including rabies tags compliments of Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control, for each adopted pet that will reside within Palm Beach County. There will also be demonstrations and a children’s activity area.
“The Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event is the largest pet adoption event in Palm Beach County, and we are excited to announce that the Lois Pope Life Foundation is returning as a sixth year presenting sponsor,” said Rich Anderson, executive director/CEO of the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
