MARION COUNTY, Fla. — Dozens of dogs in Central Florida need your help.
Marion County Animal Services recently announced its shelter is packed with more than 130 dogs who need loving homes.
As an incentive for potential owners, the county is waiving all adoption fees for the rest of April.
“We want to provide the opportunity for Marion County citizens to come to our facility and add a best friend to their family,” Animal Services Director Jim Sweet said.
Interested residents are encouraged to visit the county’s Animal Services to find a pet that’s a good fit.
Shelter officials said each adoptable pet will be spayed or neutered, updated on all vaccinations, and microchipped with owner information — all at no charge.
“We want to encourage everyone to consider creating forever homes for these great dogs that just need a chance for a better life!” Sweet added.
The adoption shelter is located at 5701 SE 66th Street in Ocala.
Adoption kennels are open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
