Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event
Saturday, September 10, 2016
10AM to 5PM
Palm Beach County Convention Center
Countdown 2 Zero is the largest one day adoption event in Palm Beach County. Planned months in advance and hosted by both Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, this huge successful event is held every year at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. Since 2014 over 25 local animal rescue organizations bring their adoptable pets to this facility with the hope that hundreds will be adopted by the local community. With the help of many hard working volunteers donating their time for eight hours, helping you find that perfect pet is made easier. Here you can choose from hundreds of cats, dogs, puppies, kittens, rabbits and even guinea pigs and decide which one is the perfect pet to bring home to your family. With such a selection, you may want to bring more than one pet home with you. It’s a big responsibility to adopt a pet so always consider your situation carefully in choosing the right size pet for your family.
