Clear the Shelters Fee-Waived Adoption Event at Citizens for Animal Protection!

cts dog On Saturday August 17th from 11am-6pm we welcome you to adopt your true love at CAP! Hundreds of adorable adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be putting their best paw forward in the hopes of winning your heart.

We are partnering with Telemundo Houston, Telemundo and NBCUniversal in an effort to Clear the Shelter and find homes for as many pets as possible. West Houston Subaru will be sponsoring the adoption fees for all pets adopted at CAP during this event - that way you can take the money you would have spent on an adoption fee and put it towards new toys, beds or future veterinary care.

The Lopez Mexican Restaurant Charitable Churro food truck will be here from 2-4pm serving up tasty ice cream & churros with proceeds benefiting our homeless pets. Please stop by for this sweet deal!

Clear The Shelters™ / Desocupar Los Albergues® is an annual, nationwide pet adoption campaign that is spearheaded by NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations, a division of NBCUniversal. Every year, NBCUniversal’s TV stations, plus affiliated stations partner with local animal shelters and rescues in their communities to host Clear The Shelters events. NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters campaign was inspired by a 2014 North Texas pet adoption event hosted by NBC 5 / KXAS and Telemundo 39 / KXTX and dozens of area shelters that resulted in the most adopted pets in one day for North Texas. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters pet adoption campaign has inspired thousands of families all across the country to open their homes and hearts to shelter pets, resulting in more than a quarter million pets finding new homes.
