Chico Animal Shelter to halve fees during Clear the Shelters

Looking to add a furry pal to your family?

The Chico Animal Shelter is participating in a pet adoption drive, halving fees for one day this Saturday (Aug. 18), noon to 6 p.m. at 2579 Fair St.

Fees will be lowered to $30 for cats and kittens and $20 for cats over 8 years old, including spay/neuter. Dog adoption prices will start at $20.75, plus half the spay/neuter price, which varies by sex and size. (Pictured is Izzy, who was at the shelter as of Tuesday.)

Since 2015, Clear the Shelters, a program of NBC and Telemundo, has resulted in more than 150,000 adoptions nationwide.

The shelter was able to reduce its adoption fees thanks to a donation from Friends of the Chico Animal Shelter. For more info, including a live pet adoption tracker, visit
