You can Help Clear The Shelters 2018!

(WALB) - It's time to Clear the Shelters! This year's nationwide Clear the Shelters adoption event will be held August 18.

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.
