At county sites, all adopted pets will be spayed or neutered, and microchipped before they go home. Vaccinations will also be up-to-date on dogs and cats.

Make sure you streamline everything to speed up the process! Many of the adoption agencies have downloadable applications to fill out before going to the event Saturday. Renters should also bring a copy of their lease to show it’s OK to have a pet at their home.

County officials note that those interested in adopting might want to consider several animals in case one has already been adopted. Adoptions typical take several hours, including time spent in line.

Clear the Shelters is led locally by television stationsNBC7 and Telemundo 20.
