CHICAGO — The Anti-Cruelty Society has faced a “challenging summer” as shelters are overwhelmed by pets in need of homes — but it’ll try to find them homes this weekend.

The animal rescue group will host its Clear the Shelters event noon-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday at its River North Adoption Center, 510 N. LaSalle St. People who participate will be able to adopt an animal and pick the price they’d like to donate to the group instead of paying the usual adoption fee, according to a news release.

People who wish to participate must make an appointment online beforehand.

Dogs, cats, Guinea pigs, mice and rabbits will be up for adoption. Photos of and information about the adoptable animals are online.

The animal rescue group has had a “challenging summer” with more than 200 animals up for adoption and 300 more being cared for behind the scenes, according to the news release.
