The McHenry County Animal Control and Adoption Center will participate in the fourth annual “Clear the Shelters Day” on Aug. 18 by waiving the adoption fee for all adoptable cats and dogs older than 6 months and discounting the adoption fee for kittens younger than 6 months. Hours for the event are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We are proud to be part of this nationwide initiative. Adopted pets go to new owners spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated with age-appropriate vaccines, including the rabies shot. We ask adopters to make a donation of their choice,” said Maryellen Howell, manager of the McHenry County Animal Control and Adoption Center.
Since the first year of this event, “Clear the Shelters Day” has led to more than 153,000 pets going home with new families. The MCAC goal this year for “Clear the Shelters Day” is to “clear the shelter” and find homes for all of the adoptable animals at the center. MCAC hopes you will help them clear their shelter again this year.
