KNOXVILLE - 10News will be teaming up with East Tennessee animal shelters in this year's 'Clear the Shelters' event.
Young-Williams and the Blount County Animal Shelter will be pushing for adoptions in their facilities.
Last year, more than 80 animals were adopted from four of the shelters participating.
10News will be at Young-Williams on August 19. Folks looking to adopt a new furry friend can arrive at noon.
Young-Williams will be allowing an adoption fee of $20, but that is excluding the puppies.
The Blount County Animal Shelter will offer reduced adoption fees. There will be a $30 medical fee for all adoptable pets, excluding puppies. Puppies will be reduced to $80, which is half the price. In addition to the reduced fees, adopters will be given goodie bags filled with discounts to local businesses, and treats for them and their pet.
