ARDMORE, Okla. -- For the third year, KTEN is teaming up with NBC and Telemundo television stations across the nation to Clear the Shelters.

During Saturday's event, overcrowded animal shelters across Texoma will welcome prospective pet owners who are looking for a new furry best friend.

Ardmore Animal Care, which is part of our Clear the Shelters campaign, is getting a head start. The price to adopt any pet has been slashed to just $5.

Not only does the fee get you a new friend, but they'll get some benefits, too.

"That still covers the spay and neuter and the initial vaccines, the deworming, and the vet exams... so it's a great deal," said Ardmore Animal Care executive director Kasey Renteria.

Ardmore Animal Care, at 321 Carol Brown Boulevard, is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and will be open from 10 a.m. to 4  p.m. this Saturday.

Other shelters participating in Clear the Shelters are Denison Animal Welfare Group, City of Paris Animal Shelter and Sherman Animal Shelter.

Be sure to follow along at #ClearTheSheltersTexoma for updates, and to share your pet adoption experience.
