On Saturday, August 19, 2017, the Department of Animal Services will take part in the national “Clear the Shelters” adoption campaign by waiving adoptions fees for all its shelter pets.
Via a news release officials said, “Animal Services is committed to saving as many lives as possible by clearing its kennels through reduced-fee adoptions, though fees will be waived, donations of toys, food, and kennels are welcomed.”
Shelter pets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
During the last free adoption event, Animal Services adopted out 218 pets during the one-day event, shattering the department’s previous single-day adoption record.
The staff at Animal Services is looking to continue that success by setting a new adoption record this Saturday.
