(KXAN) — It’s time once again to help KXAN and Central Texas Clear the Shelters.

The annual adoption event is Saturday, Aug. 27 in conjunction with participating Central Texas animal shelters which are offering waived or discounted fees for pets.

There are 12 Central Texas shelters participating this year with the goal of saving the lives of Central Texas animals living in shelters by finding them forever homes.

If you would like to share your pet adoption story with KXAN for your pet to be featured on the news, email us at reportit@kxan.com.
