BROOKSVILLE, Fla. — Up to 700 cats and dogs are available to adopt for free this weekend at the Hernando County Fairgrounds.

Hernando County Animal Services has teamed up with agencies in surrounding counties to host a Mega Pet Adoption Event through Sunday at the fairgrounds, which are located at 6436 Broad St. in Brooksville.

The animals will be brought in from Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, Citrus and Hernando counties. Adoption fees will be waived, thanks to sponsorships from Best Friends Animal Society and Pet Resources Foundation, Inc. 

HCAS says all available animals will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go home with their new families the same day. Call HCAS at 352-796-5062 for more information.
