July 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

On Saturday, July 15th, Walton County Fire Rescue (WCFR) and the Walton County Animal Shelter (WCAS) will host a summer open house to help save lives. The event will take place at the Woodlawn Fire Station at 7363 U.S. Hwy. 331 S. from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

WCFR firefighters teamed up with the volunteers and staff at WCAS to put together a family-friendly event to help promote pet adoptions and provide families with a fun summer activity. The Walton County Sheriff’s Office will be setting up their summer camp waterslide in front of the fire station, and there will be a hot dog cookout from 12 – 1 p.m. while supplies last. Families can tour the fire station, fire trucks and ambulances during their visit, and the WCSO K-9 Unit will be stopping by to talk to visit with families.

“This is a great opportunity for us to provide some fun activities for the families in our community,” says Sheriff Michael Adkinson. “And what an awesome way to help the animals at the shelter find homes.”

The Walton County Animal Shelter will be giving away a free nametag, toy and goodie bag with each adoption at Saturday’s event. The adoption fee is $55, which includes spay/neuter, vaccines and a microchip.
