The Humane Society of Vero Beach & Indian River County will partner with NBCUniversal Local for the annual Clear the Shelter pet adoption event on August 26.
Each year, this national pet adoption campaign partners with hundreds of animal rescues and shelters across the United States and Puerto Rico to help find loving homes for animals in need. Since 2015, the Clear the Shelter Day initiative has helped more than 860,000 pets find forever homes.
On August 26, the Humane Society of Vero Beach will waive adoption fees for dogs, cats, and all other adoptable animals in their care. Animals will be adopted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Adoptions include spay/neuter, up-to-date and age-appropriate vaccines, a microchip, a take-home starter bag, a cardboard carrier for cats, and a collar and leash for dogs.
The event also includes, prizes, give-a-ways, and Kona Ice will supply deliciously, cold icy treats, with proceeds benefiting the animals in the shelter.
The Clear the Shelter event will take place at the Vero Beach shelter from 10 a.m. to. 4 p.m., or until the last pet is adopted. The shelter will be closed on August 25 in preparation of this event. Check out the adoptable animals at hsvb.org.
