‘Clear the Shelters’ event on Saturday, all adoption fees waived

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The County Animal Services is waiving all adoption feeds for a "Clear the Shelters" event on Saturday, July 23.

According to County News Center, this will be the second year in a row where several local shelters will come together to give shelter animals a new home.

Adoption fees will be waived for kittens, cats, puppies, dogs, rabbits and chickens. A turtle, a parakeet and a green iguana will also be available to qualified applicants.

According to County News Center, dogs and cats will the vaccinated, microchipped and altered. Rabbits will also be altered and microchipped for no cost.

County News Center reports that last year, about a third of the available pets were adopted. 

“If you think a pet makes a house a home, then this is a great opportunity to adopt an animal,” said County Animal Services Director Dawn Danielson. “These animals need forever homes and you’ll get unconditional love, fun and companionship in return.”

Currently, about 450 pets are available for adoption this year.
