Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS) will provide local families the opportunity to adopt a pet in need during “Clear the Shelters,” a no-cost pet adoption event from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturday, August 19, 2017. Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has resulted in more than 70,000 pet adoptions nationwide.
“Last summer, 52 pets were adopted from Loudoun County Animal Services during Clear the Shelters. It was an incredible event and we are very excited to do it all again on August 19th,” said LCAS Community Relations Manager Nicole Falceto.
