Find a new dog or cat and help Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services win a national contest – jacksonville.com

Three more pet adoption events are coming up to help Jacksonville’s Animal Care and Protective Services win a national contest and a $100,000 grant, but only if more of its homeless cats and dogs end up with new families.

Special adoption events have been co-hosted by the city and nonprofit pet groups so it can win the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals $100K Challenge. Fifty semifinalists are competing for ASPCA grants totaling $300,000 by adopting out more pets between Aug. 1 to Oct. 31 than each did in the same period in 2010. Jacksonville is one of the 50 semifinalists, thanks to the votes of more than 8,700 local animal lovers during online qualifying.
