ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

If you're looking for a four-legged family member, the Albany Humane Society has your perfect chance to adopt one for free, with no catch!

On August 19, the organization will participate in the nationwide "Clear the Shelter" event in partnership with NBC television stations including WALB.

You can adopt a dog, cat, other animals with no adoption fee Saturday, August 19th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sally Wetherbee Adoption Center, or the Albany Humane Society on West Oakridge Drive in Albany.

Last year, more than 80,000 animals were adopted thanks to "Clear the Shelter" events across the nation.

"All the animals already have their rabies shot," said AHS Executive Director Andy Sartiano. "Most of them are already spayed and neutered, so honestly they just need a forever home."

The Albany Animal Shelter has some other events happening during the month of August to help out their animals:

  • Pins for Pups: On Mondays until August 21, the Albany Strikers will donate a portion of proceeds from games bowled to the Albany, Lee County, and Worth County Humane Societies
  • Let's Make a Deal: If you call the Sally Wetherbee Adoption Center or Albany Humane Society facility on West Oakridge Drive, they will negotiate an adoption price
