Clear the Shelters is Coming August 15, 2015!

More than 50 North Texas Shelters to Waive Adoption Fees to Clear Shelters on August 15, 2015

During Clear the Shelters, free adoptions* will be available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. August 15, 2015 at more than 50 shelters across North Texas in an effort to find homes for hundreds of pets across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. For the second year, the shelters, along with NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 are planning a summer regional adoption event.

Last year’s campaign, called Empty the Shelter, resulted in record-breaking adoptions and helped educate the public on the benefits of adopting shelter animals. Last year by the end of the day, 38 shelters in North Texas had participated and 2,273 animals found homes. This event was unique because it was the first time cities, counties and nonprofit organizations joined forces to offer a unified campaign. The results yielded from this tremendously successful animal adoption program illuminate the power of collaboration and teamwork.

This year is stacking up to be an even bigger success and the event has a new name — Clear the Shelters. During the special adoption event, all adoptable animals will be available to the public at no cost, although other fees may apply. The shelters look forward to matching beautiful animals to loving, forever homes throughout North Texas.

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.

Below is a list of 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.
