As Spring rolls around, pet adoptions tend to increase. There is always a growing demand for rabbits as Easter approaches. Marion County Animal Services Director Elaine Delorio says although spring is a great time to adopt a pet, she says people should be prepared for the long term commitment. Residents can view adoptable pets on the Marion County Animal Services’ website.
Alachua County Animal Services will be hosting free adoptions this Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.. The shelter has reached full capacity and is waiving fees in order to encourage more people to to adopt.
