LIMA – The Ohio SPCA & Humane Society announced that it has teamed up with WLIO to host NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption drive. Adoption fees will be $20 for all cats and dogs on Saturday, July 23, as part of the Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets.
According to Teresa Landon, Ohio SPCA Executive Director, “Our shelter is overflowing with wonderful dogs and cats ready for that special forever home. During this event, we want to match individuals and families to that perfect new four-legged companion. Adopting a shelter animal is a guarantee for finding unconditional love and loyalty.” Standard adoption procedure will be followed for all applications received on July 23rd. This involves an adoption contract in addition to the application in order to ensure the perfect match and a lifetime commitment to the animal.
This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in nearly 20,000 pets finding new homes through an unprecedented partnership between the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations and hundreds of animal shelters located all across the country and in Puerto Rico. The nationwide day of action literally emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need.
