JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Hundreds of homeless pets found new homes on the First Coast this weekend.
Nine-hundred and three dogs and cats were adopted surpassing organizers' goal of 800 adoptions.
First Coast "No More Homeless Pets", the Jacksonville Humane Society and several other animal rescue groups across Northeast Florida teamed up to host the event at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds.
Event organizers launched the Mega Adoption to save homeless pets on the First Coast from being put down.
With space scarce in many area animal shelters, the event lets rescue groups help pets find new homes -- and help families find new friends.
UPDATE: More pets have been adopted, pushing the total to 1002.
