TAVARES — Looking for an MVP (Most Valuable Pet)? Visit the Lake County Animal Shelter for the Tailwaggin’ Tailgate Party and find the perfect Puppy Bowl and Big Game couch buddy.
From 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on both Saturday, Feb. 3 and Sunday, Feb. 4, the shelter is teaming up the ASPCA and Animal Planet to get more shelter dogs and cats into homes by hosting the football-themed adoption event.
Whether you’re on Team Fluff and prefer fantastic felines, or Team Ruff and are searching for the ultimate fetch partner, the shelter is offering free adoptions the entire weekend, sponsored by LEASH, Inc. Visitors will also be treated to tailgate treats and refreshments.
“Put on your team jersey and come on down to the Puppy Bowl adoption event and help us get our shelter pets off the sidelines and into their forever homes,” said Whitney Boylston, Shelter Director.
Those who attend the event are asked to share their photos on social media by tagging the shelter’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, and by using the hashtag #PuppyBowl.
To adopt a pet, visit the shelter at 28123 County Road 561. To learn more, call 352-343-9688 or check out www.lakecountyfl.gov/LCA, www.facebook.com/LakeCountyAnimalShelter or www.twitter.com/LakeShelterPets.
