Clear The Shelters

August 25, 2023 - August 27, 2023

Friday, August 25 through Sunday, August 27 from 12-5:00 p.m., the Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) will take part in the annual Clear the Shelters adoption event to find homes for the almost 600 animals in their care.

“Our situation has become dire as so many homeless pets rely on us as a safe haven, not to mention dogs around the state who are literally dying for a spot in our facility,” explained Lily Pesavento, Community Engagement Manager for HSHC. “Right now, we are having to turn away animals in need outside of Hamilton County. The fact is, we don’t know what will happen to them. We are asking for the community to step up by adopting or fostering a dog to help with this ongoing animal welfare crisis.”

In place of the traditional adoption fees, HSHC will ask adopters to make a donation – of any amount – at the time of adoption.

Things to know for the Clear the Shelters adoption event this weekend:
– Those interested in adopting or fostering a cat or dog can fill out an application in advance at hshcadoptions.com
– If you have a dog(s), bring them with you this weekend to meet possible pets.
– Everyone in the household must meet with the animal.
– If you rent or lease, bring your pet policy.
– All adoptions include spay/neuter, microchip, one round of vaccinations/deworming, wellness exam, and a bag of starter food.
– Must present government issued ID.

Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice will be here to help every cool down in this heat and help sweeten up the day!
