JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Animal Care and Protective Services (ACPS) urgently needs dog adopters and fosters as the shelter is at critical capacity.
There are 300 dogs currently at the shelter — which only contains 264 dog kennels. Citizens are encouraged to adopt or foster a dog.
The greatest need is for medium and large dogs. Foster commitment varies and staff will help you find a match.
Tomorrow begins a Cinco de Bow-Wow adoption event starting noon. Adoptions will be free through Sunday. City license fees may apply.
Visit the ACPS shelter (2020 Forest St. – 32204) in person or visit www.coj.net/pets to view available pets.
