Free the Shelters
Thursday, 11 January 2018

On January 12–14 the Humane Society of the United States is holding a free adoption event sponsored by the PRAI Beauty Group. The "Free the Shelters" event is an opportunity for those looking for a pet to adopt one from the Humane Society of Dallas County. On this weekend the adoption donation for all adoption available animals will be waived.

Come take a look at all of the deserving animals looking for a forever home.
