Event to Continue Until Shelter is Clear

City of Wylie Animal Control is joining animal shelters across the country to host a Clear the Shelters Day pet adoption event Saturday, Aug. 18, from 9:30 a.m. until the shelter is clear. On that day, the shelter is waiving adoption fees, and all animals will have been spayed or neutered, have had all vaccines, have a microchip, have been dewormed, and have been treated with flea and tick eradication and preventive medicine.

On Clear the Shelters Day in 2017, over 30,800 animals found new homes. Over the course of the month-long campaign leading up to the event, local shelters and rescue facilities connected over 80,000 animals with new families across the nation. For the past four years, Wylie has been able to clear the shelter of all adoptable pets and staff hopes to make it five!

Wylie Animal Services is located at 949A Hensley Ln, Wylie. Visitors must be at least 18 years old with valid ID to adopt.
