SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — Santa Rosa County Animal Services announced Dec. 2 that all adoption pet fees will be temporarily waived as part of the Empty the Shelters event.

This yearly event temporarily reduces adoption fees in the hopes that more people will adopt a pet and reduce overcrowding in shelters. The adoption fees are covered by the BISSELL Pet Foundation.

Adoption fees will be waived from Dec. 6 to Dec. 20.
