Clear the Shelters

The 7th annual Clear the Shelters event, a nationwide MONTH long pet adoption initiative will run Aug. 23 through Sept. 19, 2021. WTWO & CCHS will be hosting a 1 day adoption drive this Sat., Aug. 28, 2021. To help our residents find homes, we're offering $25 off the adoption fee of any dog or puppy during the live event on 8/28/21. Our hours will be 12-6 pm.

This year’s Clear The Shelters will again feature online donations through fundraising partner Greater Good Charities. Those interested in donating to a participating shelter or rescue can visit the Greater Good Charities’ donation site during the campaign at, which will also be accessible via Hill's Pet Nutrition is the national sponsor for its fourth Clear The Shelters campaign this year.

Please note: Due to an outbreak of panleukopenia in our cat population, cats are currently quarantined and not able to leave the facility.

We are also pleased to partner with Pet Supplies Plus in Terre Haute each month. Please check our Facebook page for these dates and for additional adoption events as they arise.

Prior to COVID-19, CCHS partnered with the Plainfield PetSmart during their National Adoption Events. Unfortunately, Petsmart canceled one of those events & changes made to the remaining events were not feasible for CCHS. We're looking forward to resuming our participation with the Plainfield PetSmart in the near future.

CANCELED by PetSmart 6/5-6/7/20 due to COVID-19

NOT ATTENDING 9/18-9/20/20

We can always use an extra hand or two before, during and after adoption events. Making copies of paperwork, filling out info. cards, preparing kennels for transport or lending a hand at the event or shelter are very helpful. If you're interested in volunteering to assist with adoption events, please contact us!
