Four Texoma animal shelters found new homes for almost 120 pets on Saturday as part of KTEN's Clear the Shelters event.

Since the campaign started last month, the shelters in Sherman, Denison, Paris and Ardmore placed at least 272 dogs and cats.

It's the second year that KTEN has teamed up with NBC Owned Television Stations and Telemundo for Clear the Shelters, the annual adoption drive that this year matched up more than 76,000 pets with loving new homes.

Saturday's incentives at Ardmore Animal Care, the Denison Animal Welfare Group, the City of Paris Animal Shelter and the Sherman Animal Shelter featured discounted adoption fees for new pet-owners. KTEN thanks those agencies for their participation in the 2018 campaign. Here are the updated adoption totals from each location:

  • 77 - Ardmore
  • 20 - Sherman
  • 12 - Denison
  • 10 - Paris

Reigning Cats and Dogs, Tailwaggers County Inn and Wholesale Mobile Homes sponsored the 2018 Clear the Shelters event on KTEN.
