NBC 5 Sponsors “Empty The Shelter Day”

NBC 5 invites you to find your perfect match by adding a member to your house on Saturday, August 16, at “Empty the Shelter Day,” the largest pet adoption effort ever held in North Texas. Animals range from puppies and kittens to snuggly adult dogs and cats.

On Saturday, August 16, between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., thirty-eight North Texas Animal Shelters will participate.  All of the animal shelters listed below have agreed to waive their adoption fees; however, other fees may still apply.

During the summer, many of the shelters swell with abandoned and surrendered pets after spring births or simply because people give up their animals when they leave for vacation. Let's find these pets forever homes. Spread the word. We'll see you on Saturday, August 16th.
 
In a July 26 story, Dallas Animal Services said it is forced to euthanize 50-60 animals every day because it doesn't have space to accommodate all of the animals.
