OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Animal Welfare and KFOR need your help finding loving homes for pets.

Across the country, shelters are working to find loving families for homeless pets.

On July 23, every dog and cat that is available for adoption at the Oklahoma City Animal shelter will be free.

It’s all part of the national ‘Clear the Shelter’ event.

“Every pet deserves a home,” said Animal Welfare Superintendent Julie Bank. “All of the homeless pets in our care are waiting for loving families to take them in, and they’ll return more love to you than you can imagine.”

Free identification tags for any pet and information about pet care will also be available.

All adoptable animals have their initial vaccinations, have been treated for worms and spayed or neutered.

On Saturday, the shelter will open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The shelter, which is located at 2811 S.E. 29th St., is open for adoptions from 12 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. every day.
