On Saturday 9/12 Activ4Pets was thrilled to attend the second Countdown 2 Zero event at Palm Beach County Convention Center – the largest one-day adoption event in Palm Beach County.
Hosted by our partners over at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Countdown to Zero is a public-private community collaboration, initiated by Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, the Board of County Commissioners, and Peggy Adams, to bring animal welfare organizations together to end the euthanasia of adoptable animals in Palm Beach County.
Hall B’s massive 50,000 SF space was packed with over 500 pets available for adoption; with local shelters, volunteers and several thousand people in attendance too. We met some beautiful animals on the day, ranging from tiny (Guinea Pigs and kittens) to enormous (Great Danes and Huskies) – and from adorable to even-more-adorable.
The event was a massive success and we are proud to report 228 pets found new forever homes over the course of eight hours!
Activ4Pets would like to extend our congratulations to all the shelters involved, particularly Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League on their incredible achievement. We are already looking forward next year’s Countdown 2 Zero! Please find a selection of pictures from the event below.
