Only a Few Days Left to Help a Dog Start a New Year with a New Home

Hillsborough County, Fla. (Dec. 27, 2019) - Here's a New Year's Resolution we can all get behind: Fewer dogs at the shelter and more dogs with permanent, loving homes.

With only a few days left in 2019, Hillsborough County's Pet Resource Center is housing 237 dogs, putting the shelter at nearly 100 percent capacity. PRC officials are encouraging residents to take advantage of adoption specials and programs that can help at least some of these dogs start 2020 in the best possible way - with a new home.

The Home for the Holidays promotion cuts the standard adoption fees in half for all dogs and cats through Tuesday, Dec. 31.

The Foster Express Challenge allows residents to foster a dog for two weeks or less - even for as little as a few hours. This type of short-term fostering is a great way for our dogs to get a much-needed break from life in the shelter and potentially find their forever home while away from the shelter.

The Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center, 440 N. Falkenburg Road, is the only open-admissions shelter in Hillsborough County, meaning the shelter accepts all dogs and cats regardless of breed, size, or medical condition. The shelter is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Dogs and cats available for adoption are also viewable online.
