Free Whiskers & Waves adoption event in Jacksonville Beach

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. – The Jacksonville City Animal Care and Protection Services (ACPS) are hosting their second annual Whiskers and Waves adoption event on March 21, 10 am-3pm at Latham Plaza, Jacksonville Beach.

Dogs and cats can be adopted free of charge thanks to sponsorship from the Petco Foundation.

“We’re excited to find a permanent home for pets at this fun beach event,” said Jennifer Walter, director of ACPS. “Our shelter is in the Brooklyn area on the riverside, so many beach adopters don’t get the chance to see the wide variety of loving pets we can adopt at ACPS.”

Other pet adoption agencies participating in the event include:

  • Jacksonville Humane Society

  • Jacksonville Beach Animal Control

  • Neptune Beach Animal Control

  • Atlantic Beach animal control

Vendors and food trucks will be on site including:

  • About Time Creamery

  • Central cortex

  • Chubby burrito

  • Friends of Jacksonville Animals

  • Pet wants

  • CBD Vet

  • Yum Yum

  • Pet supermarket

Due to COVID-19, masks and social distancing are required.

ā€œThis is a great opportunity to meet your new best friend as a variety of pet adoption agencies are introducing adoptable pets. Adoptions are free thanks to the Petco Foundation, so this is an ideal time to find the perfect furry companion, ā€said Walter.
