Dallas Animal Services to Waive Adoption Fees – Aug. 15
Dallas Animal Services believes every shelter animal will find its dream home during this year’s Clear the Shelters event scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Aug. 15.
The idea hatched in 2014 when shelters representatives across North Texas gathered to discuss participating in a unified campaign. Within a few weeks, 38 area shelters joined, and NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 agreed to serve as media partners. Last year’s effort turned into the largest adoption event in North Texas history.
This year, the event has a national presence. NBC 5 and Telemundo 39’s parent company, NBCUniversal, which owns stations across the country, expanded the effort to other cities. Currently, more than 300 shelters have signed up to participate.
The 2014 inaugural campaign vastly exceeded expectations. In all, 149 animals were adopted from Dallas Animal Services and 2,273 throughout North Texas.
“This is a wonderful event that was hugely successful for us last year”, said Dallas Animal Services Division Manager, Jody Jones. “We are very excited to participate once again and invite everyone to come out and adopt a new best friend!”
Jones adds there’s a match for everyone. From puppies and kittens to snuggly adult dogs and cats, a wide variety of loving animals long for a home and a number of people long for companionship.
