Work from Home with a Furry Friend from Clear the Shelters
It’s a great time to welcome a new pet into your home. The 6th Annual Clear the Shelters event returns this year, but it’ll look a little different. Clear the Shelters runs from Saturday, August 8 to Saturday, August 29. However, adoption fees will only be waived from Monday, August 24 to Saturday, August 29. View adoptable pets ahead of time on our Petfinder page at share.plano.gov/AdoptablePets.
Call the Plano Animal Shelter at 972-769-4360 with questions. We’re following social distancing guidelines and limiting the number of visitors in our shelter. Be prepared to wait if you visit during peak times. Please remember to wear a mask when visiting the shelter.
