Off-Site Adoptions

The Humane Society of Polk County goes to various sites around the county where cats and dogs are available for adoption. These events are organized and staffed by staff and volunteers who help setup/take down the tables and cages and assist potential adopters.  Some of these include:  Lake Alfred October Fest, Friday Night Live in Lake Wales and many others. - view gallery
