22News is once again sponsoring the annual Clear the Shelter adoption event this weekend.
Several local animal shelters are participating in Clear the Shelters including the Dakin Humane Society, the Westfield Animal Shelter, and Thomas J O’Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center.
The shelters are reducing adoption fees for providing forever homes.
The Dakin Humane Society’s Lee Chambers recommends adopting over shopping.
“It’s just incredibly important to us that people have an opportunity to enjoy a new life with a new pet…and some of these pets are quite young,” Chambers said.
22News has posted the information you need to help Clear the Shelters on wwlp.com.
