Fayetteville Animal Services Aims to “Clear the Shelter”

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. —  Fayetteville Animal Services announced today that it will join with KNWA to participate in NBC Universal-Owned Television Stations’ seventh annual nationwide pet adoption drive, Clear the Shelters, for the week of Monday, August 23 to Friday, August 27. On those days, Fayetteville Animal Services will waive adoption fees for all pets. The Clear the Shelters initiative seeks to help families find and adopt homeless pets. Since 2014, the program has helped more than half a million pets find forever homes.  

“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,” stated Justine Lentz, Animal Services Superintendent. “Things are a different this year. Due to the pandemic we are closed to walk-in public foot traffic.  However, we have all our pets listed on our website with multiple pictures and information about each one.  Our adoption application is an easy-to-fill-out online form.  All adoptions are by appointment only and applications must have submitted and approved ahead of time.” Lentz explained.   

All of the available dogs, puppies, cats and kittens will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated, prior to going to their new forever home. The Fayetteville Animal Shelter is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Avenue in Fayetteville.  

The application, adoption process and pictures of available pets may be found on the City’s website  at
