PALM BEACH (CBSMiami) – A South Florida animal shelter is celebrating an amazing milestone. It’s the first time in history that one of the three Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control kennels is completely empty.

A video posted on social media shows shelter staff wearing their masks, clapping and cheering in celebration while standing in Kennel Two, the shelter’s stray housing kennel and adoption overflow kennel.

Pets provide great companionship, especially in times like these, so people have been fostering and adopting shelter pets in large numbers.

Despite Kennel Two being empty, the shelter still has other animals available for fostering or adoption.

Miami-Dade Animal Services also has dogs and cats available for fostering or adoption.

The Miami-Dade shelter is having a virtual dog adoption event on their Facebook page Thursday April 16 at 11:00 a.m.

Adoption counselors will be available to showcase their shelter dogs and answer questions about the adoption process live.
