ABILENE, Texas (KRBC) – The nationwide pet adoption drive, Clear the Shelters, is being dubbed a major success in Abilene.
Nearly 100 pets found their new forever homes during the annual event.
Sponsored by Abilene Animal Services, KRBC partnered with the Abilene animal shelter and the Taylor-Jones Humane Society.
Pets were offered a discounted adoption rate and Abilene residents showed up in full force.
Abilene Animal Services saw a total of 75 animals adopted and the Taylor-Jones Humane Society had 20 animals adopted.
The community support was so strong, one woman even donated $500 in cash to waive the fee for several animals at Abilene Animal Services.
