<![CDATA[Help 'Clear the Shelters,' Adopt a Pet]]> Sat, 15 Aug 2015 10:20:40 -0700*120/Dagmar-clear-the-shelters2.jpg

Thousands of animals in our area are in need of homes. That’s why NBC7 is partnering with shelters throughout the county to help find these animals permanent loving homes.

On Aug. 15  from 10AM-5PM, NBC-owned stations are taking part in “Clear the Shelters” Day, an initiative to help find new homes for cats and dogs waiting to be adopted.

Participating animal shelters have agreed to waive all adoption fees* (spay/neuter fees) that Saturday. Other shelter fees may apply.

The ultimate goal of the event is to help as many animals as possible find their perfect match.

Surprisingly, only about 20 percent of people looking for a pet choose a shelter animal.

No shelter wants to see any animals caged.

Finding these pets quality homes is even more critical during the summer after the populations at shelters swell due to abandoned and surrendered pets following spring births.
