The holiday season is when most people open their hearts wider than any other time of the year. We start to think about bringing a new member into the family. This season why not give the gift of life by adopting your new member at the MEGA Adoption event going on at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds. Take a moment before you go down to pick and choose from the 1,000 puppies, dogs, cats, and kittens. Think about what pet would be best for your life.
Remember a Pet is for Life, Not Just for Christmas
Please take a moment to think about adding a pet to the household during this holiday season. A pet is a huge responsibility and not just a gift for the season. Think about the time you have to give and choose the right pet for you and your family. Some things to consider:
• Do you live in an apartment or do you own a home? The amount of space will determine if a large or small dog is appropriate or maybe just a cat.
• How much time do you have with work or school schedules? Adopting an older dog that is already trained might be better than a puppy that needs attention from house training to dog manner classes.
• What is your budget? A large dog will need more food than a smaller dog or cat. Veterinarian bills range from kitten/puppy shots to yearly exams. Check out PetFinders Annual Dog Care costs for estimates on owning a pet.
Where To Go Once You Decide
The MEGA Adoption event is taking place this weekend; Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Animal Care and Protective Services, Clay County Animal Control, Jacksonville Humane Society, First Coast No More Homeless Pets, and additional shelters and rescues from across the First Coast will be on site with available pets looking for a home for the holidays.
Where: Jacksonville Fair Grounds
When: December 6-8th, 2013 from 10am – 6pm
