Clear the Shelters

Come find your new furry best friend Saturday, Aug. 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during Clear the Shelters Day at Prairie Paws Adoption Center! Dallas/Fort Worth animal shelters will join together during this special event to offer fee-waived adoptions on all adoptable dogs and cats at 67 area shelters. Clear the Shelters Day is the largest joint adoption event in Texas.

Event Facts

  • Each adoption will include spay and neuter surgery, microchip, rabies vaccination, initial core vaccinations, flea prevention, heartworm test (dogs over 6 months of age) and one-month heartworm prevention, and FIV/FeLV test (cats).
  • Pets of all sizes, ages, breeds, and personalities are waiting for loving families.
  • Summer is the busiest time of the year for shelters, but last year’s event emptied several participating shelters and Prairie Paws adopted out over 80 animals last year. We are hoping to adopt out even more animals this year!
