GAINESVILLE, Fla. ‒ Find Your Paw-fect Match this Valentine’s Day at Humane Society of North Central Florida! Stop by the 4205 N.W. 6th Street location on Saturday, Feb. 11 from 11-3 for a family open house event featuring adoptable pets, food trucks, and interactive booths for all ages.

A puppy kissing booth, adoptable pets, BluLine Q, Lulu’s Gelato, and a kids craft station are just a few of the fun activities you’ll find at the Humane Society of North Florida’s first ever in-house event brought to you by Parks of Gainesville.

The event seeks to find forever homes for puppies, dogs, cats and kittens at the Humane Society’s North Campus shelter as spring ramps up and kitten season begins. The event will feature pets in the shelter and from foster homes. All pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

“We are thrilled to open the doors to the community with this fun event that features something for everyone. This event is extra special as it allows the public to see each important program that we provide in-person in our shelter building,” says Executive Director, Chelsea Bower.

“Our staff and volunteers are excited to welcome the community to this one of a kind event and share their love of the animals and hopefully make some paw-fect matches!” said Joshua Sexton, Director of Volunteer Programs. The event will take place at Humane Society of North Central Florida at 4205 N.W. 6th Street from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 11. Adoptable dogs will be available for a reduced adoption fee of $14 with the exception of puppies under 5 months of age. Check out all the available pets at HumaneSocietyNCFL.org/Adopt!
