JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Human Society and Jacksonville Animal Care & Protection Services shelters are full and pets are in need of a good home.

Dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, will be available for adoptions from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 23 during their joint Sunday Fun Day adoption event.

"Spring is always a busy time of year for shelters because litters of puppies and kittens are being born," said Denise Deisler, executive director Jacksonville Humane Society. "We're already full, so we hope that this special event will inspire people to come find their new best friend."

The shelters will offer $20 adoptions, according to a Jacksonville Human Society press release. For more information about the pets available for adoption visit the Jacksonville Human Society website.
