Animal Services Helps Clear the Shelters

For the fourth year in a row, Garland Animal Services and 960 animal shelters across the country participated in the annual Clear the Shelters event.

The event, held this year on Saturday, Aug. 19, brought cities and counties together to find homes for thousands of pets across the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Each year on Clear the Shelters day, animal shelters waive pet adoption fees to help encourage adoptions. This year, a record 102 pets were adopted from the Garland Pet Adoption Center and Animal Shelter! A total of 3,114 animals were adopted in the DFW metroplex, and 59,320 pets were adopted across the country!

Even with all the adoptions at the event, there are still plenty of pets available for adoption here in Garland. Visit GarlandAnimalServices.org to see available pets and find an adoption location.

Thanks to all the adopters who helped make an animal’s dream come true by finding a forever home! Take a look at photos of this year’s event below.
