The Escambia County Department of Animal Welfare will waive adoption fees on all dogs in the shelter now through Tuesday, Feb. 14.

A separate $11 licensing fee will be required at the time of adoption for all county residents. Visit 24petconnect.com to see a full list of adoptable animals in Escambia County.


“We currently have about 90 dogs available at our Animal Welfare and Adoption Center” said Animal Welfare Director John Robinson. “We are confident we can help match you and your family with the perfect pet. You can see our available pets online by visiting 24petconnect.com and entering your zip code, or come by in person to meet our pets. If you aren’t able to adopt right now, we encourage you to become a foster or volunteer to help make a difference in the life of a pet.”

The Escambia County Animal Welfare and Adoption Center, located at 200 W. Fairfield Drive, is open Monday-Friday from 12-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.  Follow the department on Facebook to learn more about adoption events, featured pets and more.
