Clear the Shelter Day activities this Saturday

Take part in National Clear the Shelter Day on Aug. 17 with numerous local activities from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bowie Animal Shelter including free adoptions.
If your family is considering adopting a pet, dog or cat, this could be the perfect opportunity to see the many great animals in need of a home.
From 8 a.m. to noon, staff from the Cross Timbers Veterinary Clinic will be on hand for a low-cost vaccine clinic which will include rabies CHLP (five-way combination) and rattlesnake for dogs. Rabies, FeLV and FVRCP (five-way combination) for cats.
There will be hot dogs, Mexican street corn and drinks to enjoy for your donation. Shelter-Hearts will have a blessing of the animals at 11 a.m. Anyone may bring their animals to be blessed. Friends of the Bowie Animal Shelter will have a silent auction, baked goods and a calendar contest to raise funds for the transports and spay/neutering.
While the main event ends at noon, there will be volunteers at the shelter until 4 p.m. to assist with adoptions.
A local cat group will be attending, along with folks and their dogs from Easy Street Animal Shelter in Saint Jo and Lucky Paws in Nocona. This will be a great opportunity to come out and support all three Montague County animal shelters who are supported in part by volunteers.
