Pet Adoption Event Comes to Jacksonville Beach

Mar 5, 2021

Dogs and cats will be available for adoption later this month at Jacksonville’s second annual Whiskers and Waves Adoption event. 

The event will take place on Sunday, March 21, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Latham Plaza in Jacksonville Beach.

Adoptions will be free thanks to a sponsorship from the Petco Foundation. 

“We are excited to find forever homes for pets at this fun event at the beach,” said Jennifer Walter, division chief of Animal Care and Protective Services, the host of the event. “Our shelter is located in the Brooklyn area of Riverside, so many adopters from the beaches do not get the opportunity to see the wide variety of loving pets we have for adoption at ACPS.”

Other pet adoption groups participating in the event are Jacksonville Humane Society, the Jacksonville Beach Animal Control, the Neptune Beach Animal Control, and the Atlantic Beach Animal Control.

Due to COVID-19, masks and social distancing are required.
