Clear The Shelters Adoption Event
We’re excited to team up with NBC4 & Telemundo 52 for the annual #CleartheShelters campaign. Join us on Saturday, August 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a fee-waived adoption event for all available animals, including dogs, cats, kittens and critters! On-site adoptions will be available with no appointment necessary. Since 2015, NBCUniversal’s Clear The Shelters campaign has helped more than half a million pets find new homes.
All dog and cat adoptions include the spay or neuter surgery, a microchip and age-appropriate vaccines. New adopters will receive a complimentary health-and-wellness exam at VCA Animal Hospitals, as well as a packet filled with information about how to care for your pet.
The event is open to residents of any city looking to adopt a pet. Regular adoption screening applies. View animals for adoption at pasadenahumane.org/pets.
Following current CDC guidelines, face masks will be required in all indoor areas regardless of vaccinations status. Event festivities, dog kennels, and pet adoption line will be outdoors. Please prepare for the heat–hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and water are recommended.
Seniors for Seniors
Our Seniors for Seniors program enables people age 60 and up to adopt pets age 5 and up free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the Pets for the Elderly Foundation.
Of course, most pets at age 5 (like most humans at age 60!) are hardly over the hill; on the contrary, they’re just hitting their stride, and the Seniors for Seniors program—besides offering financial assistance to our more experienced adopters—gives an extra boost to the terrific middle-aged cats and dogs, who are sometimes overlooked by shelter visitors.
Pets for Vets
We offer fee-waived adoptions and vaccines for all active duty and retired military personnel. Adopters must show military ID at time of adoption to qualify.
