In an effort to save animal lives, reduce overcrowding in shelters, and promote animal adoptions, all Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Animal Shelters have been asked to participate in the “Clear the Shelters” adoption event on Saturday, July 23.

The theme for this year’s event is “Welcoming home a new family member.” The day of the event, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Lewisville Animal Shelter and Adoption Center will waive all pet adoption fees. Adoption includes sterilization, microchip, viral vaccines, rabies vaccine, heartworm testing (if applicable), city registration (if Lewisville resident), and 30 days of free pet insurance.

Last year, Lewisville Animal Services found homes for 70 of the 78 pets that were available for adoption, and greeted more than 500 guests that day.

The Lewisville Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is located at 995 E. Valley Ridge Blvd., across from Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park. For more information, visit
