August 17 @ 12:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Clear the Shelters is a groundbreaking pet adoption campaign that will take place on August 17th in more than 28 markets across the United States and Puerto Rico! This is a one day event where shelters waive their fees to help animals across the country get adopted and find their forever home. Last year over 80,000 pets were adopted!

The Fredericksburg SPCA is waiving fees for all available animals 7 months and older. We encourage the community to visit us up to 7 days before hand to take advantage of our Foster-To-Adopt program.

This year our goal is to truly CLEAR THE SHELTER! We will be staying open until midnight, or until every animal is adopted – whichever comes first! We are turning this into our very own PAWTY with the help of B101.5 who will be onsite providing entertainment, giveaways and live updates! We will have Juan More Taco FXBG, and Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard on site to keep guests bellies as full as their hearts! Off Leash K9 Training LLC, Fredericksburg will be on site and offering a 10% off package to all dogs adopted during our Clear The Shelters event! Paw Pose & Play as well as Petvalu – Fredericksburg will also be on site to share their information! There’s something for everyone! We will have a kids station set up with coloring and reading – so be sure to bring the entire family. In the evening, if there are still animals left to adopt, staff and volunteers will be changing into their Pawjamas to continue the party until midnight! We encourage guests to join in the fun!

The FredSPCA will have a Spanish translator and a Hard-Of-Hearing translator on site.
