HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – The Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center will join pet shelters from seven other counties for a dogs-only mega-adoption event on Oct. 7-9.
The event is organized by Pasco County Animals Services and will be at the Pasco County Fairgrounds, 36722 SR 52, Dade City, FL 33525. Hours are 2-7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday.
In addition to Pasco and Hillsborough counties, dogs (not cats) will be coming from shelters in Pinellas, Hernando, Manatee, Polk, Sumter, and Marion counties. The dogs will be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and microchipped.
With hundreds of dogs available, residents are sure to find a perfect fit. In addition, area shelters are full – Hillsborough’s shelter is currently at about 150 percent of capacity for dogs – and the event will help clear the shelters.
The Pet Resource Center, 440 N. Falkenburg Rd., Tampa, FL 33619, is the only open-admission shelter in Hillsborough County, meaning it accepts dogs and cats regardless of breed, size, or medical condition. Adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
