Adopt a Pet
Clear the Shelters is Aug. 19, 2017
City of Wylie Animal Services is once again joining animal shelters across the country to host a Clear the Shelters Day pet adoption event Saturday, Aug. 19, from 9:30 am to 5 pm. The shelter is waiving adoption fees, and all animals will have been spayed or neutered, have had all vaccines, have a microchip, have been dewormed, and have been treated with flea and tick eradcation and prevention medication. City registration will be issued to all Wylie residents who adopt.
Animals will be sent to their new homes with extra goodies, including food samples and other gifts from Petco. Adoptive families will also receive over $200 worth of free veterinary services from VIP Petcare, plus a 20-percent off coupon for any VIP Petcare-operated clinic.
Last year, Wylie found forever homes for 47 animals; the DFW grand total was 7,542 and nationwide, 44,397.Let's keep the momentum going; for the last three years, Wylie has been the first shelter to clear out 100 percent of its animals, and staff is hoping to make it four in a row!
Members of Girl Scout Troop 7749 will be on hand to give out free drinks and snacks, compliments of the City of Wylie. Thanks to East Plano Murphy Pet Hospital and Texas Coalition for Animal Protection for their support, helping pets get ready for their new homes by donating vaccinations and spay/neuter services respectively.
