Manatee County, FL -- Adopting your next family pet will soon become even more convenient for Manatee County residents.

Manatee County Animal Services is opening a new downtown adoption center today at 1002 B Manatee Ave. W., just east of the Manatee County Administrative Center.

The facility has room for five dogs and five cats and a “Get Acquainted Room” for prospective buyers to spend time with the pets.

The Manatee County Animal Services Adoption Center Downtown Division will operate Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The primary Animal Services location will remain open at 305 25th Street W., Palmetto.

Also, for the first time ever, anyone wishing to adopt a pet can get a preview of the available animals on Animal Services new and improved website.

The site is updated every hour, giving visitors a chance to see a photo and read a brief description of the pets who are up for adoption. Pet owners can also use the site to find missing pets.

The adoption fee for dogs is $80 and $60 for cats, not including the required Manatee County License Certificate and Tag for Manatee County residents. Special promotional fees are offered throughout the year.
