Fraser, the affectionate pup, ready for adoption
Fraser, the 3-year-old brindle-colored dog, is the longest resident at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, and a volunteer favorite. This lovable, gentle, playful boy is currently looking for a good home. He loves to play with his ball and meet new people.
Due to a recent influx of animals through their doors, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control is making an effort to find homes and foster families for many dogs, including Fraser. He is considered a “volunteer favorite” by those at the shelter, and ready for a new family. Melanie Perazzo, a volunteer, stated “He’s a great dog and if you’re in a household that loves to be active, loves to go outside, spend time outside in your backyard, he’s a great guy for you.”
As an overcrowded shelter, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control urges people to consider adoption or fostering a pet. Jackson and other animals, who need a temporary home, can be fostered. Additionally, the shelter’s Amazon Wish List contains items that would make the pets more comfortable.
If you decide to adopt Fraser, currently the shelter offers significant incentives to adoptive families. Adoptions, microchips, vaccines and tags are at a greatly reduced fee. PBCACC ensures that every pet is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has county license tags. Adopters also receive a free Health Care Certificate that offers a free exam for their pet from participating veterinarians, with a savings of up to $500, and a bag of Hill’s Science Diet pet food.
For those interested in adopting, the foster/adoption application is completed in person, and no appointment is needed. Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control is located at 7100 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach, just west of the Florida Turnpike. Adoption center hours are Monday to Friday, noon – 6 p.m., Saturday, noon – 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon – 4 p.m. For further information, please call 561-233-1200.
In conclusion, if you are searching for a loyal companion to accompany you and your family on outdoor adventures or fetch games, Fraser is ready to be part of your family. Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control hopes that more kind-hearted individuals will come forward to adopt or foster pets to give them a better life.
