Our Partner Dallas Animal Services Having Empty the Shelter Day this Saturday
Our fantastic partners at Dallas Animal Services are hosting a "Empty the Shelter Day" this Saturday, August 16 from 10am-5pm. They are trying to find wonderful homes for 100+ animals. Empty the Shelter Day is also being hosted by animal shelters throughout the DFW Metroplex.
Empty the Shelter is an effort to find homes for hundreds of pets across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. An unprecedented number of cities and animal shelters, both municipal and non-profit, throughout North Texas have joined forces to offer free adoptions that one very special day. This is the largest adoption effort ever held in North Texas and what the partners hope to be the largest multi-city, multi-county adoption event in the United States.
The event is Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm. Our partners at Dallas Companion Animal Project will be supplying a corp of volunteers to assist the staff at Dallas Animal Services. DAS is hoping to clear their entire adoption area of dogs and cats – more than 100 pets in just 7 hours. Add adopted pets will be spayed or neutred, vaccinated and microchipped, receive 30 days free pet insurance, as well as a $10 Hollywood Feed gift card and a free ID tag.
The event is sponsored by the ASPCA, NBC5 and Telemundo, and will be covered by all local media outlets.
If you are interested in adopting a pet, please think about stopping by on Saturday, and please let your friends and relatives know as well. You can share event information directly from the DAS Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/dallasanimalservices or the DAS Twitter feed.
