Mesquite, TX – August 20, 2021 – Adopt the “pawfect” furry friend at the Mesquite Animal Shelter during the month long Clear the Shelters event from Aug. 23 to Sept. 19. Clear the Shelters is an annual, nationwide pet adoption campaign where animal shelters find loving homes for pets in need. The Mesquite Animal Shelter will have weekly adoption promotions leading up to the final Clear the Shelters week which will offer FREE adoptions.
All adoptions from the Mesquite Animal Shelter, 1650 Gross Road, include a spay or neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, DHPP and Bordetella for dogs and FVRCP for cats, deworming and a microchip. To see available pets, visit www.cityofmesquite.com/PetAdoption.
