From overpopulation, to abuse and neglect, dogs and cats fight through difficult conditions every day. However, several local organizations – including News 13 – are teaming up to make sure less fortunate animals find a forever home.
Every first Friday, when you come to the Bay government center to pay your taxes or pick up your driver's license, you can also leave with a new best friend.
“There are homes in Bay County that need the love of a precious pet,” said Jan Gainer, president of the Panama City Women's Club. “We are here to help serve Bay County in that fashion.”
They, along with Mosley High's Dolphin Juniorettes, Bay Animal Control and News 13 are trying to spread the word on the joys of pet adoption by setting up a mini adoption center at the Government Center.
Gainer says its a good opportunity to showcase what Bay animal control has to offer.
“Most people do not realize that they can go have the largest selection of adoptable loveable pets in all of Bay county,” Gainer said.
Terri Lancaster was on the quest to find her perfect pet Friday. “I think my doggies here,” Lancaster said. She's been looking for a pet since her father passed away in January.
