Pre-registration opens for animal adoption event at Clay County Fairgrounds

CLAY COUNTY, Fla. — Considering pet adoption ahead of the holidays?

A large animal adoption event is in the works for later this month at the Clay County Fairgrounds, but pre-registration is required.

From Wednesday, Nov. 3 through Friday, Nov. 5, Florida residents will be able to pre-register for a 30-minute adoption time slot.

Anyone interested in adoption must pre-register and submit an application at

The registration portal will have information on pricing and the adoption process, and a link to pre-register.

Organizers say applicants must provide their name, email address, and basic information about previous pet ownership.

All applications will be vetted the following week and assigned an identifying number. Each identifying number will be randomly assigned a time slot and the corresponding email address will be sent a confirmation with the date and time for the day of the adoption. If you are not able to make the assigned time, no other time slot will be assigned.

Successfully vetted applicants should expect a confirmation email before the end of next week.
