INDIANAPOLIS -- The Humane Society of Indianapolis is waiving adoption fees on Saturday as part of the "Clear the Shelters" nationwide initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets. 

“We’re looking forward to participating in this year’s Clear the Shelters initiative, and we think it’s a unique way to work together and find great homes for the many homeless animals in Central Indiana,” Steven Stolen, Chief Executive Officer at IndyHumane, says. “We’re thankful for the opportunity to participate in this national effort, and we hope it inspires our local community to take action and open their homes to animals in need.”

Last year's nationwide "Clear the Shelters" event found homes for over 50,000 pets. 

The event will take Humane Society of Indianapolis at 7929 Michigan Road from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Normal adoption procedures will apply.
