Clear the Shelter event Aug. 18 waives pet adoption fees


Mansfield Animal Care & Control will participate in Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption event Saturday, Aug. 18, waiving adoption fees for those giving these lovable furry friends a forever home.

The shelter is located at 407 Industrial Blvd. and will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the event. The Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP) will also be on hand from 10 a.m. to noon providing low-cost vaccinations.

“The Clear the Shelters event has been extremely successful in helping animal shelters across the country place homeless dogs and cats,” said Lori Strittmatter, Manfield’s shelter manager. “It’s important to try and keep our population down as we move into fall and winter. But also waiving adoption fees is a great incentive for people who are looking for a pet.”

The staff will have hot dogs and Kona Ice starting at 10 a.m. for those visiting the shelter. Updates on the availability of animals will be provided on the City of Mansfield, Texas Municipal Government Facebook page throughout the day.
