Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you have puppies, kittens, or small dogs?
Both ACPS and JHS will bring all pets who are available for adoption. If there are puppies, kittens, or small dogs, they will be adopted quickly, so we advise you to come early.


What does the “FREE” adoption price cover?
The adoption fee covers the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations, and care for the animal until time of adoption. The adoption fee has been waived to $0 or FREE for this weekend. Other fees may apply.


Are the pets fixed? Vaccinated?
Yes, every pet available for adoption will be fixed and given their vaccinations, including rabies. The only exception to the rabies vaccine is kittens and puppies under 4 months of age.


What should I bring?
Please bring your photo ID and cash.


What does “additional fees may apply” mean?
The city of Jacksonville requires all adopters under the age of 62 living within Duval County (excluding Jacksonville Beach) to pay the city licensing fee at the time of adoption for any pet that has received its rabies vaccination. The cost is $20.


Can I bring my own pets to meet potential new ones?
Well-behaved and healthy pets are welcomed in Petsmart stores. We do not allow them in the adoptions area, because it’s very stressful for your own pet. Staff from both locations can help you find dogs who attend doggy playgroups and enjoy the company of other canines. Our staff can also send you home with instructions on introducing your new pet.


Where can I see the pets who will be available?
Shelters do not know in advance which pets they can bring because we will be doing adoptions at our facilities until Friday. You can always view adoptable animals at and


Will the shelters be open during this event?
Yes, JHS will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during this event on both Saturday and Sunday. ACPS will be closed both days.
