Clear the Shelters, a national pet adoption event, returns Aug. 23 to the Irving Animal Care Campus (IACC), 4140 Valley View Lane. Irving will be one of several dozen North Texas shelters participating in this year’s monthlong event.
From Aug. 23 to Sept. 19, animal lovers can visit the IACC to adopt their own 2021 gold medal companion. IACC is open to the public from 1 to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. More details about this year’s adoption process will be available at CityofIrving.org/CleartheShelters closer to the event date.
Eight years ago, Clear the Shelters originated in Irving and now is led nationally by NBC Universal and Telemundo. For details about the national campaign, visit CleartheShelters.com.
