Clear The Shelter And Make A Furry Friend

Richardson Animal Shelter waiving adoption fees during ‘Clear the Shelters’ event

The shelter was instrumental in starting the now-national event that began in 2014, according to the city.

Clear the Shelters is a now-national adoption and donation event that the Richardson shelter helped start in 2014, according to an announcement by the city.

During the national event, shelters waive adoption fees and offer other promotions to encourage pet adoption.

The event coincides with a time when shelters are particularly full. Some of the reasons are an increase in kitten births in the spring and a rise in people moving to new homes and not taking their pets.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition, the event sponsor, will match all monetary donations up to $20,000.

The city is hoping for a good turnout, especially for dog adoptions, due to space constraints brought on by a renovation project at the shelter.
