Fort Pierce Florida's Mega Adoption Event: Bringing Love and Forever Homes to Thousands of Pets

Petco Love MEGA Adoption Event

The City of Fort Pierce Animal Adoption Center, the Humane Society of St. Lucie County, local nonprofits, and animal rescue organizations will come together at the Havert L. Fenn Center June 23-25, 2023, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm to host Florida’s Mega Adoption Event, brought to you by Petco Love, Florida Leaders in Lifesaving, and BOBS from Skechers. This exciting event aims to find loving homes for 5,000 pets across the state of Florida.  

"We are thrilled to be hosting Florida's Mega Adoption Event in collaboration with our valued partners. This event provides an incredible opportunity for thousands of pets to find loving homes and showcases the dedication and commitment of the participating shelters and organizations," said Glenn Camelio, executive director of the Humane Society of St. Lucie County. 

“We know that Floridians love animals and there is no better way to add a family member than by adopting from your local shelter. Summers are notoriously challenging for shelters nationwide and this is an opportunity to change the lives of so many dogs and cats -- not just those adopted, but also the ones who will come to shelters in the months afterward,” said Denise Deisler, JHS CEO. 

“Petco Love has been instrumental in Florida’s increased lifesaving for many years, and we are so appreciative for their continued dedication to animals and animal welfare organizations in the Sunshine State. We cannot wait for Floridians to come together and support our shelters. Petco Love is committed to creating a world where every shelter pet finds a loving family and no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Petco Love president, Susanne Kogut. 

In collaboration with the City of Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County, City of Fort Pierce Animal Adoption Center, and the Humane Society of St. Lucie County, this event is the first of its kind in Florida, with participation from 50 organizations across 31 counties. Thousands of dogs and cats will be available for adoption. All pets will be spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccinations. All adoption fees will be waived, some exclusions may apply.  

We hope to see you there!
