Pets will be available for adoption at the Share the Love Open House and Adoption Event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17 at the SPCA Adoption Center at 6035 Sisson Road in Titusville.

Look for door prizes, games, food, music and more.

“Adoption fees will be waived for pets six months and older,” said Susan Naylor, the public relations coordinator. “Pets will also be neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and micro-chipped.”

Fancy Pants, a 2-year-old mixed-breed female, is among the dogs waiting for a forever home. She was found starving on the streets of Fort Lauderdale.

“She was skin and bones and only a day or two from being euthanized when we rescued her,” Naylor said. “Fancy Pants is full of spunk and will need to be adopted into an active family.”

Shadow, a 6-month-old black female cat, is waiting for the right home. She has a sweet, loving disposition and plays well with other cats. However, she tends to scare easily and that is why her “office mom” named her Shadow.

Naylor spoke of older pets such as Delilah, a 10-year-old “sweet, couch potato female kitty” and Peanut, an 8-year-old mixed, male dog rescued from a flooded home in Cocoa, after Hurricane Irma. An adult-only home is preferred for Peanut.

“Senior pets may have special needs,” Naylor said. “They need a quiet home where they can hang out.”
