Loudoun County Animal Services will participate in the fourth annual nationwide “Clear the Shelters” free pet adoption event from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
Adoption fees will be waived for all available pets.
“This is an exciting event during a time of year when we have the greatest number of pets in need,” Shelter Operations Manager Amy Martin said. “Clear the Shelters is a fantastic opportunity for adopters to visit the LCAS animal shelter and adopt their next furry, feathered, or scaly family member.”
During previous events, most or all the animals at the shelter have been adopted. This year, for the first time, animal services is offering a “free cat guarantee” to all adopters. If all cats are adopted, would-be adopters who miss out the opportunity to add a furry friend to their family will receive a coupon for one free adoption valid through Dec. 31 for any available cat at least six month old.
To help as many pets as possible, animal services is also partnering with a rural shelter to receive up to 15 more ready-for-adoption dogs for the Aug. 18 event.
All dogs, cats and rabbits adopted from LCAS are spayed or neutered and receive a microchip which is registered to their adopter. Dogs and cats also receive age-appropriate vaccinations. The shelter frequently has many pets available for adoption including hamsters, guinea pigs, reptiles, rabbits, other small pets and livestock.
The standard adoption screening process applies during this promotion and most adoptions can be completed on the same day. Available pets may be viewed online at loudoun.gov/animals.
