Animal Welfare Continues Free Pet Adoptions all week

In an effort to help pets find homes in time for the holidays, the Escambia County Department of Animal Welfare will continue its adoption special through the remainder of 2023.


During the event, adoptions for all cats and dogs 1 year or older will be free. Puppies will be available for $50 and kittens will be available for $25. An $11 licensing fee will be applied to all adoptions for Escambia County residents. View all adoptable pets at the Animal Welfare and Adoption Center on 24petconnect.com.

“We had an incredible response to our ‘Empty the Shelters’ holiday campaign with BISSELL Pet Foundation,” said John Robinson, Director for the Department of Animal Welfare. “We are excited to be able to continue our free adoption special during the holidays. We hope our community will come out and take advantage of this opportunity to bring a pet home this holiday season.”
