Clear the Shelter offers free pet adoptions

Clear The Shelters Adoption Event This Saturday

According to the NBC Connecticut website, which provides a complete list and map of participating shelters, hundreds of shelters in 20 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico will participate. Best of all, rabbits and adult cats will be free, and kittens and dogs will be 40% off.

"Since this is a nationwide event, we've been posting information to our Facebook page", Derrick said.

"Clear the Shelters", will be held this Saturday, August 19 at shelters and rescues across the city.

Executive Director, Jody Murray, said this year, the Jonard family got into contact with the shelter, and wanted to make this event happen.

"They're all great animals", he said. Homeward Pet is waiving adoption fees for all cats and dogs on August 19.

That's a pretty big portion of the 60,000-plus new pets adopted across the country during this year's event.

If you are not ready to adopt a pet, please join our social media effort to help us raise awareness about our third annual Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign.

Down south in Hereford, the brand new Deaf Smith County Humane Society just opened in April and they were eager to show it off today.

Adoption fees will be waived at 12 area shelters on Saturday as part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative. The Humane Society in Rogers is joining the event as well.

"We heard about the event, we fell in love with him, so we woke up at 5 a.m. this morning to come and adopt him", Janice Ribeiro said.

Spring litters greatly increase the overall animal population, leading to overcrowding of shelters during the summer months. "Our center has increased adoption rates and upgraded facilities to become a model for shelters throughout the region".

"This is one of the happiest days of my life", she said.

Clark said while the shelter tries to keep animals as long as possible depending on space, it sends some to rescue organizations and euthanizes those with bad temperaments or attitudes.
