This is the area’s largest local pet adoption event and will feature hundreds of adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, birds and more seeking new families and homes. Admission and parking are free.

Organized by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, the Countdown 2 Zero Adoption Event is a collaborative effort of over 20 local animal rescue organizations to save the lives of animals in Palm Beach County.
