PARKLAND, FL- There is no better time than the holidays to welcome a beloved furry friend into your family. Adopt-a-Pet Event hosted by Coldwell Banker is coming to Parkland Saturday, December 14, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Equestrian Center. 

According to The Humane Society, approximately eight million dogs and cats enter shelters each year and annually almost three million healthy shelter pets do not get adopted. According to ASPCA, 5 in 10 dogs and 7 in 10 cats in shelters are euthanized simply because there is no one to adopt them and only 10-20 percent of dogs and cats owned are adopted from shelters.

The Adoption and Supply Drive goal is to find furever homes for these rescue animals in time for the holidays. Local rescue groups will be on site with animals available for adoption. People are encouraged to bring pet supplies to the event. Donations will be spilt among the rescue groups. Give your family the gift of a furry best friend and give an animal the gift of a having furever family.
