Adopt a pet from Allen Animal Shelter on Saturday, August 19 and all adoption fees will be waived!
The City of Allen is among dozens of North Texas shelters and rescue organizations participating in Clear the Shelters. The pet adoption initiative helps address overcrowding at animal shelters, which typically reach peak capacity during summer months.
On one day only, shelters across the country will waive adoption fees in an effort to find a home for every available animal. Allen Animal Shelter typically charges $95. Pets adopted from Allen Animal Shelter are spayed or neutered, chipped and vaccinated prior to adoption.
Clear the Shelters began in North Texas in 2014 and expanded nationwide in 2015. Sponsored by NBCUniversal, Clear the Shelters has attracted national news coverage, rocketed to the #1 trending topic on Twitter and helped find homes for more than 73,000 pets.
Allen Animal Shelter will offer free adoptions from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 19 at Allen Animal Shelter (770 S. Allen Heights Drive). At other North Texas shelters, fees and shelter times may vary.
