Animal Services Offers No-Fee Pet Adoptions for Nationwide “Clear the Shelters” Event
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— Fayetteville Animal Services joins KNWA to host Clear the Shelters, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ nationwide annual pet adoption event. This year marks the initiative’s fourth year of helping families find and adopt homeless pets.
Fayetteville Animal Services has waived adoption fees for pets adopted on Saturday, August 18. The Lib Horn Animal Shelter, located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave. in Fayetteville, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Pets will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Shelter staff recommends that adopters get there early and encourage people to fill out their adoption applications in advance, so the staff has time to get the application approved before the event. Applications are available at the shelter or on the City’s website at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/petadoption.
All available dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated, prior to going to their new forever home. Adopters can preview available pets on Petfinder or at this link. Please note that pet profiles are listed until the adoption process is complete; adopters should visit the shelter in person to learn more about the animals.
“We are so excited to team up KNWA and be a part of this nationwide event to help our local Fayetteville shelter pets find their forever homes,” said Justine Lentz, Animal Services superintendent.
