Clear the Shelters Adoption Event Scheduled for August 19th

It’s time again to Clear the Shelters! This year’s nationwide Clear the Shelters adoption event will be held August 19th. People across South Georgia will be able to adopt pets with little or no fees. The nationwide day of action last year literally emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need. For more information about the national pet adoption drive, visit www.ClearTheShelters.com. You can also follow the effort on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #ClearTheShelters. Additionally, Clear the Shelters themed Snapchat filters will be activated on August 19th for pet adopters and supporters to enjoy as they document their day. Best Friends Humane Society will be participating. Their contact information is 787 Ephesus Church Road Poulan, GA 31781 Phone: 229-777-7774 Hours: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Website: https://www.bfhsworth.com/. Let’s spread the word and help our furry friends at BFHS find their furever home. Please check your current location for participating shelters.
