Santa Rosa County Animal Services (SRCAS) invites the community to attend an Adoption Luau event at the Santa Rosa County Animal Shelter, 4451 Pine Forest Rd. in Milton. The event is 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 13. The Luau will include fun-loving dogs, $5 adoptions, Mister Softee ice cream, children's activities and more. Volunteers with Upper Room Church will also be helping with the event.
"We're excited to be able to have an adoption with our partners Friends of the Santa Rosa County Animal Shelter," said Randy Lambert, Animal Services Cheif. "This is a great opportunity for our community to enjoy a day with some of our awesome animals, and who knows, maybe even take home a new furever friend."
Overcrowded animal shelters are a nationwide problem, in Santa Rosa County Animal Shelter's care alone, there are over 90 dogs and 200 cats. The purpose of the event is to encourage families to adopt from the local shelter, with over 50 dogs and 120 cats available to go to their furever homes. Even if now is not the best time for a family to adopt, this event is the perfect opportunity to learn other ways to help the shelter. From donations to volunteering, supporting our community's most vulnerable animals is a community-wide effort.
