Broward County Animal Care and Adoption will host a special dog adoption event, Saturday, October 6, during the K9 Water Festival at T.Y. Park, 3300 N. Park Road, Hollywood. Dogs will be available for adoption from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at special discounted rates.

In addition, new adopters will also receive savings coupons from Pet Supermarket for food and supplies. Attendees will also be able to enjoy the sounds of DJ Scott Evans.

“We are excited to partner with the County's Parks and Recreation Division for this event. The K9 Water Festival is always a great time for dogs to have a splashing fun time. This year, people will actually be able to adopt a pet and then let their new adopted family member go for a swim,” said Public Education Coordinator Lisa Mendheim.

This weekend’s adoption event is part of Broward County Animal Care and Adoption's participation in the ASPCA $100K Challenge, a national adoption event running from August 1 through October 31, with a goal to find homes for 1,636 pets during the three months. So far, 857 dogs and cats have found a home since the Challenge began. Participating shelters are competing for the chance to win the top prize of $100,000.

Broward County’s Animal Care and Adoption is dedicated to providing shelter for lost and surrendered animals as well as the successful adoption of homeless pets. The agency also coordinates the registration of dogs and cats and provides rabies vaccinations to encourage a healthier pet population.
