Father's Day Pet Adoption Specials at Animal Care & Protective Services

In honor of all the great dads across Jacksonville, the city's Animal Care & Protective Services Division is offering pet adoption specials for male dogs and cats throughout June. All male pets will be available for adoption for only $20, which covers the license fee.  That could mean a savings of up to $80 off regular adoption fees.  All animals adopted from Animal Care & Protective Services have been screened for heartworms, spayed/neutered, microchipped and given an initial checkup and shots, including the rabies vaccine.

License-free Saltwater Fishing Father's Day Weekend

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and one great way to celebrate is by planning a fishing trip off of the waters of Florida.  So if it has been awhile since you last wet a hook, or if it is something you’ve always wanted to try, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has provided a great opportunity to get dads and their families out on the water. You won’t need a saltwater fishing license anywhere in Florida during the weekend of June 18-19.
