Clear the Shelter Returns at PAWS Murfreesboro

Come on by on Saturday morning, August 19 to celebrate pet adoption!

Rutherford County PAWS has joined NBCUniversal Local’s 2023 Clear The Shelter pet adoption and donation event for the entire month of August.

PAWS asks all members of the community to join them in their BIG celebration event on Saturday, August 19th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is the ninth consecutive year NBC and Telemundo owned stations are partnering with affiliate stations and animal shelters and rescues to promote pet adoption and help raise funds to support animal welfare.

Since its inception in 2015, Clear The Shelters has helped more than 860,000 pets find new homes. Sponsors Team George Weeks, local real estate company in Murfreesboro, has returned again this year to waive all adoption fees during the big event.

PAWS stands for Pet Adoption Welfare Service. It is located at 285 John R. Rice Blvd., next to the Lane Agri-Park. For more information on the Paws for a Cause event, visit their website.
