Clear the Shelters - Every August

We’re joining nearly 700 shelters across the country, to place every adoptable animal into a loving home. For the second year, the City of Henderson Animal Care and Control Facility will participate in “Clear the Shelters.” In partnership with Telemundo Las Vegas, the Animal Shelter is joining hundreds of animal shelters across the country in a nationwide effort to find all shelter pets loving forever homes during Clear the Shelters!

 All adoptions will be half price:
• Cats/kittens are regularly $80. For Clear the Shelters, they will be adopted for $40. Henderson residents will receive an additional 50% off, $20.
• Dogs/puppies are regularly $90. For Clear the Shelters, they will be adopted for $45. Henderson residents will receive an additional 50% off, $22.50
• Rabbits are regularly $35. For Clear the Shelters, they will be adopted for $17.50.
Henderson residents will receive an additional 50% off, $8.75.

These fees include the routine vaccines, spay or neuter surgery if not already done, microchip ID and registration, and Rabies tag or Henderson License (depending on where you live). Anyone adopting who have animals at home must provide pet(s) current rabies vaccination and spay/neuter paperwork to get licensed, no exceptions. If pets are already licensed with City of Henderson, this does not apply.

The City of Henderson Animal Care and Control Facility will be open from 7 AM to 5 PM on Clear the Shelters Days. However, adoptions close at 4:30 p.m.  Anyone who would like to adopt a pet during the event must have their furry friend chosen before 4:30 p.m.
