Lake County Animal Services to host ‘Tail Waggin’ Tailgate Adoption Blitz”

RELEASE DATE: September 12, 2014

TAVARES – Put on your team jersey and gather up the whole family for Lake County Animal Services’ “Tail Waggin’ Tailgate Adoption Blitz,” to be held from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20. The event, to take place at the shelter, located at 28123 County Road 561, Tavares, will feature adoptable pets for $10, games, free hotdogs, coleslaw, and kettle chips.

Since Lake County Animal Services’ adoptable pet population has remained steady at 90 percent throughout the summer, management has opted to continue its $10 adoption promotion at least through Oct. 1, when the Lake County Sheriff’s Office begins overseeing the shelter’s operations. All dogs will be available for adoption for $10 each, and cats are being offered for $10 or adopt-one-get-one-free. The fee includes all services regularly provided upon adoption. A maximum of three dogs and four cats may be adopted per household.

“We encourage the entire family to partake in some friendly competition at the animal shelter and possibly meet and take home their new MVP,” said Jennifer Ferguson, Lake County Animal Services supervisor.

The football-themed event is sponsored in part by Hurricane Dockside Grill, located at 3351 W. Burleigh Blvd., Tavares.

The shelter is open weekly from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday, except holidays.
