This Saturday is the day you’re finally getting a pet.

If you’ve been hemming and hawing about getting a pet, it’s time to finally take the plunge. The Monmouth County SPCA (260 Wall Street, Eatontown) will reduce adoption fees from noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 17 as part of a “Clear the Shelters” nationwide campaign.

Hundreds of shelters across the country — and dozens in New Jersey — are participating in the program, a nationwide pet adoption drive.

Everyone knows that pet shelters are overcrowded, and so the shelters are trying to figure out a way to attract people who have been on the fence about adopting.

Aside from the Monmouth county ASPCA, here are other New Jersey organizations who are participating:
