LAND O’LAKES — Individuals and families looking for a new furry companion have an opportunity this Saturday to find a new pet and pay no adoption fee.

Pasco County Animal Services if offering free adoptions from noon until 6:30 p.m. that day as part of the national “Clear the Shelters” promotion, which has provided new homes for more than 250,000 pets across the country.

While adoption fees are waived on that day, Pasco residents will be required to purchase a county license for each pet adopted. Adoptions include spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations and microchipping.

The event takes place at the county animal services office, 19640 Dogpatch Lane, Land O’Lakes. For more information on Pasco Animal Services, visit https://www.pascocountyfl.net/408/Animal-Services.
