After the long quarantine, Alachua County Animal Services has been verified free of disease and is FULL of wonderful, adoptable dogs who are desperate to get out of the shelter.
Staff and volunteers get to know these dogs very well. Dogs play in groups so their play styles and preferences can be observed. Information is gathered from volunteer notes, foster homes, dog day outs, play group interactions, cat-testing, kid-testing, and more.
You may not be able to tell much about a dog by seeing her in the kennel or reading her kennel card, but by asking staff and volunteers, you can learn so much about the dogs that are available for adoption or foster.
Whatever needs you have, just ask staff and volunteers to recommend a dog. Don’t feel the need to make a commitment right away! Foster first to make sure you’re making the right choice. Any time out of the shelter benefits the dogs. We can get you started, just contact us.
Want more options? Adopt or foster from one of the wonderful private rescues in the area. The rescues have adoption events every weekend at Petsmart on Archer Rd. Every new foster or adoptive home with a rescue allows the rescue to take another at-risk dog from Animal Services.
This brindle beauty is just one of the dogs that private rescues have helped Animal Services to save. Nala will be available for adoption through the Humane Society at Petsmart this weekend, 6/8 and 6/9.
