The Countdown 2 Zero (C2Z) pet adoption event at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach is the county's largest event of its kind. More than 22 rescues will be there with over 1,000 homeless puppies, dogs, cats and kittens, rabbits and more. 

The 5th annual adoption gathering is happening on Saturday, September 8th from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. It's hosted by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control and sponsored by the Lois Pope Life Foundation. Last year, 273 pets found a new home and organizers are hoping to help even more abandoned pets find a family this year.

"This is Palm Beach County’s largest one-day adoption event,” said Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, "On this day, the local animal rescue community comes together, united in our efforts to save the lives of homeless animals in Palm Beach County. Together, through C2Z, we are working to save the life of every single adoptable animal in our community."

Many of the rescue organizations will be offering special discounts and adoption incentives and all new pet owners will receive special gifts. Additionally, rabies license tags will be given free to each adopted pet that will reside in Palm Beach County.

Both admission and parking are free for the C2Z event. Save the date and make a difference in Palm Beach County by adopting an abandoned animal.

South Florida Fairgrounds location: 9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL 33411.
