Hundreds of animals have new homes after the Animal Foundation's Clear the Shelter event Saturday.

225 animals were adopted during the event, including 130 dogs, 80 cats, seven rabbits, one hamster and two chickens.

Only four animals -- one dog, one cat and two rabbits -- are waiting for new homes.

The Petco Foundation sponsored all adoption fees, allowing new pet owners to take their animals home for free.
