BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you are considering adopting a pet, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control would like you to think about adopting now. The PBC shelter is over capacity, following a huge number of pets being “given up” over the past few days.

This is the official statement issued by Animal Care and Control: “Palm Beach County Department of Public Safety’s Division of Animal Care and Control (PBC ACC) is urging the community to foster or adopt a pet as the number of animals in the shelter has risen to over 350. More than 30 animals were owner surrendered to PBC ACC in a two-day span. With numbers like this, capacity for care is stretched to the limit, making the plea for adoptions/fosters more important than ever.

For those who have been thinking of adopting a furry friend, there is no better time than now. All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and will receive a starter bag of Hill’s Science Diet pet food. For those reluctant to adopt, fostering is a great option. Fostering-to-adopt gives the opportunity to spend time with a furry friend and provides the opportunity for the animal to get out of the kennel and enjoy time in an enriching environment.

Those interested in adopting or fostering their new best friend can visit PBC Animal Care and Control in person (no appointment needed) or view pets online at PBC ACC is currently offering low-cost adoption fees for senior pets.

PBC Animal Care and Control is located at 7100 Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach, just west of the Florida Turnpike. For more information, please call (561) 233-1200 or visit”
