You are invited to add a member to your house in the largest pet adoption effort ever held in North Texas. “Empty The Shelter” Day is Saturday, Aug. 16 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Participating animal shelters across the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex are waiving adoption fees. Other fees may still apply.
During the summer, many of the shelters swell with abandoned and surrendered pets after spring births or simply from people who give up their animals when they leave for vacation.
Please consider opening your heart and home to an animal in need. Below is a listing of shelters that are participating in “Empty The Shelter” day.
