What is Empty the Shelter Day?

Empty the Shelter partners invite the public to come out and find their perfect match on Empty the Shelter Day, to be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.*

Empty the Shelter Day is an effort to find homes for hundreds of pets across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.   An unprecedented number of cities and animal shelters, both municipal and non-profit, throughout North Texas have joined forces to offer free adoptions* that one very special day.

This is the largest adoption effort ever held in North Texas and what the partners hope to be the largest multi-city, multi-county adoption event in the United States.

Please visit each of the websites below for locations, adoption policies and other important information regarding Empty the Shelter Day. Together with the North Texas community, these groups are hoping to find forever homes for all of the animals in their shelters.

*Other fees and participating shelter times may vary.
