TAMPA, Fla. --- Hillsborough County Pet Resources are set to hold a drawing to determine which applicants have the opportunity to adopt.

The drawing is set for Thursday at 4 p.m. to determine which of the more than 1,300 applicants will have the opportunity to adopt one of the dogs recently rescued from a local dog breeder.

Hillsborough County released the adoption details for the 350 dogs seized from a breeding facility in September.


The names of the applicants will be drawn at random by Tampa Bay Bucs punter Bradley Pinion. Pinion recently created #puntsforpunts program with the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center.

The drawing will take place at the Frederick B. Karl Center in Tampa. It will also be streamed live on the Pet Resource Center's Facebook page.

Applicants will be notified by email Friday of their status. Those who are chosen to adopt can select and pick up their dogs on Sunday at All People's Life Center. Adoptions will begin at 10 a.m.
