MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Manatee County Animal Services is having an Adopt-A-Thon on Saturday, August 9th from 10 am to 4 pm.

Special adoption fees will be announced throughout the event. Each adopted pet will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, including rabies, receive a health check and microchip. A license fee of $15 is required for Manatee County residents.

“The goal of this event is simply for these wonderful dogs and cats to find a loving home and family to call their own. Rescue pets are eternally grateful, and are a companion who will stick by your side for life,” said event organizer Mary Pallante-Verville.

In addition to adorable critters, the event will feature food, games, raffles, a bounce-house for children, and live music courtesy of Kim Betts and Gamble Creek Band.

Additional support will be provided courtesy of Underground Auto Styling, The Manatee County Hit Crew, and a group of motorcycle enthusiasts who will be riding down from Tampa to join us for the day.

The adoption event will be at Manatee County Animal Services in Palmetto; 305 25th Street West from 10 am to 4 pm.
