During Commissioners Court on Tuesday, August 14, 2018, Fort Bend County Judge Bob Hebert proclaimed Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19 as Clear the Shelters Days at the Fort Bend County Animal Services Shelter.

The Clear the Shelters adoption event is a partnership with NBC/Telemundo and Fort Bend County Animal Services staff and volunteers who have agreed to devote their time, resources and energy to the united effort to bring attention to the homeless at the shelter.  The turnkey pet adoption event will help pets find forever homes with no adoption fee; and all adoptions include a health check, spay or neuter of the animal, and the first series of vaccinations!

County Judge Bob Hebert said, “A healthy, happy spayed or neutered pet with basic inoculations can be yours free of charge. That’s a great deal!”
