National Clear the Shelters day is Saturday, August 18. All adoption fees will be waived on this special day. Adoptions include spay/neuter, vaccines and microchip. The shelter will open 30 minutes early at 11am and will remain open until 5pm.
Clear the Shelters is the largest single-day adoption event in the country. The day is all about finding homes for shelter pets nationwide - as well as bringing awareness to shelter overcrowding.
There are over 650 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens currently at Montgomery County Animal Shelter (MCAS) who all need loving homes. MCAS is over capacity and we hope to see a significant number of adoptions. Last year, 200 pets were adopted during the event. This year, our goal is 250 adoptions!
***Please note that not all of the available pets are on facebook, so come see for yourself! Or search by breed, sex and size at petharbor.com***
