Over 100 pets find new homes in October

Paul Studivant reported to local Historic City News reporters in St Augustine that the St Johns County Pet Holding and Adoption Center enjoyed a successful month for pet adoption in October; with 103 pets placed overall.

The recent “Tails-and-Treats” adoption event, presented in partnership with the Friends of the Pet Center, helped push the month’s totals over the century-mark.

“We would like to extend a big thank you to the volunteers who donated their time to ensure those pets found a new home,” Studivant told reporters. “In an effort to provide the public with additional opportunities to find a new pet during the holidays, we will continue the extended hours of operation that we implemented on September 1.”
