Adoption fees waived  (This day only)

On Saturday, August 19, 2017, the North Richland Hills Animal Adoption & Rescue Center will be participating in Clear the Shelter Day.

Clear the Shelter Day is an effort to find homes for hundreds of pets across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. An unprecedented number of cities and animals shelters, both municipal and non-profit, throughout North Texas have joined forces to waive adoption fees for this one day only. Together with the other North Texas communities, we are hoping to find forever homes for all of the adoptable pets in our shelter. For a list of participating shelters and groups, please visit

Tips to Remember:

  • adoptions are first come first served.
  • dress appropriate for the weather, stay hydrated and be prepared to be patient as there will be a line.
  • if you are planning to adopt a cat or kitten, please remember to bring a carrier with you.
  • if you are a renter, please check with your landlord ahead of time to make sure there are no pet restrictions. A letter from your landlord on company letterhead stating you can have a pet is required for all renters.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact the Animal Adoption & Rescue Center at 817-427-6570.
