Sweet Delilah is an 11-year-old Lab mix wanting to get out of the shelter. She’s very happy and friendly and gets along with all humans and dogs. She’s at the main shelter, 4900 Martin St. ID A41408113.

In the eyes of a pet, there’s nothing more important than having a family to love. Fort Worth shelter pets are deserving of that forever love. Nearly 500 dogs and cats, kittens and puppies are in the shelter, and each is waiting to meet you during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, May 17-19.

When choosing a new pet, the owner’s personality and lifestyle, along with challenges such as space restrictions and amount of time spent at home, should be explored to determine which pet is right for the household. Ask shelter staff for guidance — they’re experts at making perfect matches.

Adoption fees are reduced to $10 during this event. Fees include an initial medical examination, vaccinations, micro-chip and spay/neuter services. Adopters also receive a coupon book and a complimentary bag of pet food.

Check out all three adoption locations:

  • Chuck Silcox Animal Care & Adoption Center, 4900 Martin St. (open Friday-Sunday).
  • PetSmart Adoption Center Hulen, 4800 S.W. Loop 820 (I-20 at Hulen).
  • PetSmart Adoption Center Alliance, 2901 Texas Sage Trail (I-35W at Heritage Trace).
