The Georgetown Animal Shelter is teaming up with KXAN for the fifth annual Clear The Shelters pet adoption drive Aug. 17 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Clear The Shelters is an annual national adoption event spearheaded by NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations.
During the event, the shelter, 110 W.L. Walden Drive, will waive adoption fees for dogs and cats older than 1 year and reduce pet adoption fees to $17 for younger cats and dogs.
“I’m excited to participate in Clear The Shelters for the first time,” Animal Services Manager April Haughey said. “We are a small shelter; so every adoption greatly impacts us.”
A pet adoption tracker will be posted at cleartheshelters.com and will show the total number of pets adopted from participating shelters. Since 2015, the adoption drive has resulted in more than 250,000 adoptions nationwide.
