Looking for a new furry friend?
You may be in luck. Animal Rescue Konsortium (ARK) and FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital in DeLand have teamed up to hold an adoption event Saturday. The group will be waiving its usual adoption fees for kittens, adult cats and dogs over 40 pounds.
The event will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the ARK Rescue Center, 441 S. Woodland Blvd. in DeLand, adjacent to FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital.
ARK rescues cats and dogs from shelters the week they are scheduled to be euthanized, from DeLand's Second Chance program and from pet owners who have lost their homes.
They're looking for forever homes for these animals and require references from any potential adopters. Home inspections may be performed if necessary, according to a news release from the group.
