Lakeland, FL— SPCA Florida Tri-Mega Adoption Event on Saturday, July 18th held at SPCA Florida, Polk County Animal Control, and Humane Society of Polk County was a huge success. Two Hundred Sixteen wonderful furry companions found their new forever homes – big dogs, small dogs, senior pets, adult cats, puppies and a whole lot of kittens.
With an adoption fee of just $20.00, many families were able to give a pet a new home and a new life. All animals were spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.
SPCA Florida partnered with Polk County Animal Control and Humane Society of Polk County to bring Polk County’s homeless animals together for this event. Animals were available for adoption at each shelter.
“We are thrilled with the outpour of support from our community,” said Shelley Thayer, SPCA Florida, Executive Director. “Temperature checks, masks, and safe-distancing were the norm at shelters where 216 animals found homes on Saturday. We are grateful to our Sponsors, Donors, Staff, Volunteers and Adopters who came together to save lives,” said Thayer.
Sponsors who made the event possible were Geico Philanthropic Foundation, Publix Super Markets Charities, Inc, Mr. Dan Fling, and Cat Depot.
Special thanks also goes out to Ala-Cart Golf Carts, Stadium Pizza, Claudia Kersey, Chappy’s Dog House, Mobile Mini.
