Fees will be waived for dog or cat adoptions at the Arlington Animal Services Center between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday, July 23 as part of the national Clear the Shelters initiative.

Regular adoption prices are $90 for cats and kittens and $100 for dogs and puppies. Those costs include sterilization, vaccinations, city license, microchipping and free health testing services. These fees will be waived for the one-day event.

Arlington Animal Services officials hope to help at least 100 dogs and cats find their fur-ever homes through this year’s Clear the Shelter event.

Last year, more than 19,000 pets were adopted from more than 400 shelters across the country.

“We encourage Arlington residents and surrounding areas to join us in this day of action to help ‘Clear the Shelters’ and gives dozens of homeless animals a chance at a new life,” Animal Services Manager Chris Huff said.

Limit of two pet adoptions per household.
