Local and area animal shelters are participating in the nationwide adoption drive aiming to find “furever” homes for homeless pets on Saturday.
As part of the “Clear the Shelters” effort, animal shelters across the country will be waiving their adoption fees and extending hours. Since 2015, more than 261,000 pets have been adopted through the Clear the Shelters adoption drive, according to its website.
The Flower Mound Animal Adoption Shelter, 3950 Justin Road, will have extended hours from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17. The Animal Rescue Foundation of Texas will also be participating at the Flower Mound PetSmart store, 6060 Long Prairie Road, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Many other shelters in the Dallas-Fort Worth area are also participating in Clear the Shelters. The next closest participating shelters are located in Denton, Lewisville and Grapevine. Click here for more information.
