Mega Adoption Event Update

Last weekend was a wonderful 3 days for the First Coast area’s shelter animals.  Here’s a summary of what happened:

  • 950 total adoptions – more than 96% of all pets available found homes
  • Largest pet adoption event ever in the nation
  • 10,000+ attendees, not including volunteers and team members

What was most impressive was seeing the teams of the Jacksonville Humane Society, Animal Care and Protective Services, First Coast No More Homeless Pets and all the shelter and rescue groups working together seamlessly as one.

Here are two of my pictures taken just after opening:
