Find the perfect furry friend for you on Clear the Shelters Day, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Garland Pet Adoption Center, 813 Main St., or Garland Animal Services, 600 Tower St.
On this day, Garland Animal Services will join animal shelters across the nation to waive pet adoption fees in an effort to find homes for hundreds of pets.
During summer months, many pet owners move to a new home or go on vacation; as a result, some owners surrender their pets to shelters for adoption. To address overcrowding in shelters and to help these animals find homes, shelters across the country have agreed to waive adoption fees on Clear the Shelters Day.
Last year’s Clear the Shelters campaign resulted in record-breaking adoptions and helped educate the public on the benefits of adopting shelter animals.
