Marion County residents will have an opportunity this weekend to meet the local first responders and dogs that are highlighted in Marion County Animal Services’ inaugural calendar.
On Saturday, February 18, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., “Rescues & Rescuers of Marion County” will take place at Marion County Animal Services, which is located at 5701 SE 66th Street in Ocala.
During the three-hour event, calendars featuring Marion County Fire Rescue personnel and adoptable pups will be on sale for $15. Attendees will also be able to get signatures and photos with everyone involved in the inaugural calendar.
Free pet adoptions will be offered to everyone who buys a calendar at the event. In addition, there will be inflatables for kids, music, games, and door prizes, along with snow cones for purchase.
The event, which is sponsored by P.E.T.S. of Marion County, is free to attend and open to the public. All proceeds from Marion County Animal Services’ calendar will be used to support the animals at the shelter.
