The Irving Animal Care Campus (IACC) wants to ‘clear out the campus’ this month during NBC Universal’s national adoption event, Clear the Shelters, which returns Aug. 1-31.
During the month of August, interested pet adopters can work with IACC staff and volunteers to find their forever companion at the campus located at 4140 Valley View Lane. Pets 6 months and younger are $100 to adopt, and animals older than 6 months are $85. On Aug. 27, pet adoption fees will be waived for all pets at IACC in celebration of Clear the Shelters.
IACC is open from 1 to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; closed on Sunday and Monday. Adoptions should be processed 30 minutes prior to closing.
Clear the Shelters originated in Irving eight years ago as a one-day event. Now, IACC joins hundreds of animal shelters across the U.S. shining a light on pet adoptions and the importance of local shelters.
