This weekend, July 23rd, two local animal shelters in Wichita Falls will be participating in the national 'Clear The Shelters' campaign. If you've been thinking about getting a new dog or cat for your home, this is the perfect time.

'Clear The Shelters' is a national event aimed to find forever homes for animals all over the country. On one day, all participating animal shelters waive adoption fees and try to get as many families connected with a new pet as possible.

Last year, over 400 shelters participated in the event and over 20,000 pets found a new home. They hope to make this year even better.

In Wichita Falls there are two different shelters participating this year. You can find your new best friend this Saturday at the Humane Society of Wichita County or at the City of Wichita Falls Animal Services.

If you've thought about adding a new furry family member, don't miss out on this event. Help 'Clear The Shelters' this Saturday and find a new forever home for a shelter pet in your community. Find more info at
