Mesquite Animal Shelter hosts successful Clear the Shelter event
On Aug. 17, the Mesquite Animal Shelter hosted the 2019 Clear the Shelter event and 89 animals were adopted by new families. This included 52 dogs, 36 cats and 1 guinea pig. The annual event waives all adoption fees for one day. This month is a special time for the shelter as it celebrates 24 consecutive months of a more than 90 percent save rate for all its animals. Last year, the shelter took in more than 6,000 animals regardless of situation or condition. Watch highlights of the event.
