FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  

City of Fort Pierce Animal Adoption Center Opens to the Public 

The City of Fort Pierce announces the opening of the Fort Pierce Animal Adoption Center, located at 100 Savannah Road in Fort Pierce, offering new services and hours of operation to the public. 

Calling all animal lovers, the Fort Pierce Animal Adoption Center welcomes guests to come and enjoy the open-kennel walk-through for dogs. Accompanied by a staff member, the public can take an in-person tour of the dog area, in-person before considering adoption.  Cats will now enjoy a new spacious building, allowing them to roam free in a living room-style environment that hosts a separate ventilation system to keep them healthy and entertained.

“As a kennel technician, I am very excited to see the city step in and help make the lives of these animals better. We are here to provide as much care as possible and help them find a forever home. We have begun to find new ways to improve our facility already by adding second feedings, getting these animals outside, and have established new meet-n-greets where folks can come visit them. It’s exciting to see so far.” - Gabi Montgomery, Kennel Technician

“I have been here for over a year, and to see the city come in and make the leadership change has been great. We are all looking forward to the new opportunities these animals will have.” – Chloe Bowers, Animal Caretaker

The new hours of operation are Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM; Closed Mondays; Tuesdays through Thursdays from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Fridays from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and appointments are still encouraged for animal-to-new owner meetings.

The City of Fort Pierce would like to thank the local veterinarians who have provided much-needed veterinary care to the dogs and cats at the shelter. A special thanks to Midway Veterinary Hospital, Tri-County/VCA, Rescue Adoption, Savannah Animal Hospital, Guardian Veterinarian Medical Center, and the Animal Medical Hospital for either providing assistance or working on future aid for the shelter.

The City of Fort Pierce remains committed to compassionate care of all animals and will be allocating more resources to improve our facility, build relationships with community partners, and encourage responsible adoptions.
