Santa Rosa County Animal Services has launched a no contact, socially distanced adoption program.
Fetch A Friend provides people with the opportunity to find a new pet while maintaining safe social distancing.
Animals can be viewed online at https://www.santarosa.fl.gov/405/Search-Adoptable-Pets and the adoption application can be completed online as well. The shelter will call to set up an appointment and either bring the pet out to your car at the shelter parking lot or deliver the animal to your home if you live in Santa Rosa County.
The shelter will call a week later to check on your pet and finalize the adoption.
Fetch A Friend is in place to help the shelter find homes for the animals during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. The shelter is working to keep its population at a minimum to prepare for potential decreased staffing levels, and this new program offers a way to safely find the animals a home.
Adoption rates have been reduced through the end of April. Cats are $10 and dogs are $25.
