Manatee County Animal Services (MCAS) announced that it will join with News Channel 8 WFLA to host Clear the Shelters, the sixth annual nationwide pet adoption drive, from Saturday, August 1 - Monday, August 31. For the entire month, all adoption fees will be waived in lieu of a donation made to the Friends of Manatee County Animal Services (FoMCAS). FoMCAS is a nonprofit organization that works hand in hand with MCAS to enrich the lives of the shelter animals by raising funds to provide additional resources, medical care and heartworm treatment. MCAS is participating in the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to help families find and adopt homeless pets. Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has resulted in more than 410,000 pet adoptions nationwide. Manatee County residents are required to license their new pet for an additional $20 tag fee. All pets will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped - a value over $300. Select long-term shelter pets who are adopted will go home with a complimentary gift bag of toys and supplies to celebrate their arrival to a new home. Gift bags are limited. The Palmetto Adoption Center and Shelter, located at 305 25th Street West in Palmetto, and Manatee County Cat Town, located at 216 6th Avenue East, Bradenton, are available to visit by appointment only. You can make your online appointment by going to mymanatee.org/pets and filling out an adopter profile and reserving your appointment date.
