Saturday is Clear the Shelter day

The Burleson City Animal Shelter will be participating in Clear The Shelter Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday

This is a nationwide pet adoption initiative which more than 60 North Texas animal shelters will be partnering in to find homes for adoptable pets.

The adoption fees will be waived at the Burleson Animal Shelter. Last year, the Burleson Animal Shelter had 42 animals adopted on Clear the Shelter Day.

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.

So if you’re thinking about taking home a new furry friend, consider heading to a local animal shelter to adopt during Clear the Shelters Saturday when hundreds of shelters will waive or discount fees as part of the one-day adoption drive.

The Burleson City Animal Shelter is located at 775 SE John Jones Drive.
