Animal Lovers -You Can Help ‘Clear the Shelters’

By Mark Young, SouthFloridaReporter.com Managing Editor, Aug 12,2015 – Our friends at NBC 6 & Telemundo 51, have asked us to join them in helping to find new permanent homes for the numerous animals in shelters around South Florida. We are proud to be able to help spread the message. The program is called “Clear The Shelters” and here’s information on the program:

By NBC 6 StaffThousands of animals in our area are in need of homes. That’s why NBC 6 and Telemundo 51 are partnering with animal shelters throughout South Florida to help find these animals permanent loving homes.

Aug. 15, 2015 is “Clear the Shelters” Day, an initiative by NBC-owned stations to help get cats and dogs waiting for new homes successfully adopted. That Saturday, South Florida’s shelters will take part in “#CleartheShelters” Day. They have agreed to waive all adoption fees that day in hopes of attracting even more people interested in rescuing a furry friend. 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 adopting 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.
