The fairgrounds is also home to a massive animal rescue operation. The Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook held a news conference at the fairgrounds to discuss the situation. Officials from multiple agencies are transporting the animals to the fairgrounds. Many of them are pregnant. The animals are waiting for new homes.

If you are in search of a pet, the Humane Society of Wichita County can help you find an animal that’s right for you. The website of the society features a list of pets that are available for adoption. A potential adopter must fill out an adoption application before interacting with the animal they are interested in. Once approved, they can then visit the shelter to meet the animal and begin the adoption process.
PetSmart Charities works with local animal shelters to find homes for homeless animals. They screen pets for health and behavior before they are available for adoption. You can search for pets by zip code, breed, size, and age, and contact a shelter directly to begin the adoption process. The site also has listings of birds and other animals that are available for adoption.
PetSmart Charities is dedicated to finding lifelong homes for all pets. Through its adoption program in PetSmart(r) stores across the United States and Puerto Rico, the nonprofit group saves the lives of more than 600,000 shelter animals each year. In addition, it provides grants to animal welfare groups and spay/neuter clinics.
The ASPCA, a nonprofit group, and the Humane Society of the United States both receive grants from PetSmart Charities for their work. The groups are able to provide homes for the animals through these grants. In 2016, PetSmart Charities provided $139,000 in supplies to the two organizations. This grant enables these organizations to continue saving animals.
Adoption events are held at most PetSmart stores. PetSmart Charities also partners with local groups to offer adoptable animals in their local communities. Adoption events are held throughout the week, and most pets are adopted between Friday and Sunday. The next adoption weekend is scheduled for February 17-19, 2017.
PetSmart Charities is also partnering with Feeding Northeast Florida, a local affiliate of Feeding America, to provide pet food and traditional pantry staples to homeless families in Northeast Florida. The organization also makes cash grants to Meals on Wheels member organizations. The nonprofit organization knows that pets are often the only companions for senior citizens. It’s essential that they have enough food for their animals.
