St. Johns pet adoption center construction update – jacksonville.com

St. Johns County Pet Adoption Center officials are asking for the public’s help as center renovation begins Monday, Feb. 18, at its facility at 130 N. Stratton Road, off U.S. 1 between County Road 210 and International Golf Parkway.

The renovations will renovate the air filtration system and expand the cat housing area, creating a temporary shortage of space to house animals.

So St. Johns County Animal Control is asking the public to help by adopting its dogs and cats. Adoption fees are $60 for dogs, which includes vaccinations, spay/neuter and a heartworm test. The $30 cat adoption fee also includes vaccinations, spay/neuter and a feline AIDS/leukemia test. Before and during the construction, two cats can be adopted for the price of one.

The county is also asking that any owner who may give up their pet instead contact local rescues and other adoption centers or wait until construction is completed in April.

The county’s Pet Adoption Center continues regular hours during construction – 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
