Looking for a new furry friend? The Atlantic County Animal Shelter has an event coming up just for you.

On August 17th and 18th, the Atlantic County Animal Shelter will be holding a Clear the Shelter event. Simply put, if you adopt a ready-for-adoption pet, your fee will be waived.

Normally, the fee to adopt puppies and dogs is $110.00 and $85.00 for kittens and cats.

This is the fifth year the Atlantic County Animal Shelter is participating in this event. To date, more than 400 successful adoptions have taken place, according to a press release.

“We invite the public to stop by our shelter...to meet the wonderful animals in our care that are anxious to find forever homes,” says Shelter Manager Kathy Kelsey.

The Atlantic County Animal Shelter is located at 240 Old Turnpike in Pleasantville. The shelter is open 7 days a week from 1 to 4PM, except on Tuesdays when they are open from 1 to 3.

In addition to the Clear the Shelter event, the shelter's next free monthly rabies vaccination clinic is Sunday, August 25th, from 9 to 11AM. No appointment is necessary.
