I’ve heard about a “Clear the Shelters” event and was wondering what that is? We are hoping to adopt a dog soon. With school about to start, this seems like a good opportunity to bring a dog into our family. Can you fill me in on this event and where we might be able to meet some adoptable pets?
Curious about Adoption Events in Cottage Grove
“Clear the Shelters,” will be held this Saturday, August 19 at shelters and rescues across the city. The “Clear the Shelters” effort, which teams up more than local NBC and Telemundo television stations and with hundreds of animal shelters from all across the country, returns for a second consecutive year after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort which resulted in nearly 20,000 animals finding new homes.
On Aug. 19, participating animal shelters in the Houston area will offer no-cost or reduced fee adoptions or waive pet spaying and neutering fees. Please contact the shelters directly, as offers on adoption fees will vary.
Many shelters in Houston are participating this year, including BARC. BARC is even taking this exciting adoption opportunity one step further and turning it into a fun day for the whole family. Join them at the shelter, located at 3300 Carr Street, from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. for face painting, food, games, activities, an adoption photo booth and much more.
You really won’t find a better opportunity to adopt that pet you’ve been wanting than the “Clear the Shelters” event. Our shelters are full of adoptable, loving animals–many of them even purebreds–who need a caring, responsible home. Pets adopted from shelters tend to be highly trainable, healthy and appreciate every loving touch and kind word you have for them. Make a difference in the life of a homeless animal this Saturday!

Pet of the Week
Meet Stella. This black lab is about the easiest gal on the planet! She loves all humans, other dogs and even cats! Stella weighs about 45 pounds and is fully grown (so you won’t get any surprises here). She is potty trained and loves to spend her days lounging on the sofa or watching squirrels in the yard (curious creatures indeed!). Stella would be the perfect pet for any family or household.
