Clear the Shelters $20 Pet Adoptions: 8/18

Categories: In the News

The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA is participating in the 4th annual “NBC4 and Telemundo 52 Clear the Shelters,” a pet adoption campaign spearheaded by both stations. On Saturday, August 18, the adoption fee for all animals will be reduced to $20 and the shelter will hold extended adoption hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Clear the Shelters raises awareness about the benefits of pet adoption and aims to reduce the animal overpopulation at local shelters. During the month-long campaign, the stations will cover news stories to spotlight the issue, including the importance of spaying/neutering, the benefits of micro-chipping, and helping families find the right pet for their homes.

The campaign culminates on August 18 when the stations broadcast live on NBC4’s Today in LA at 7 a.m. and Telemundo 52 at shelters throughout the Southland, and continue the coverage all day. News anchors and reporters will be present at several shelters to celebrate with families and their new pets. The evening newscasts will recap the day with success stories and highlights. Additionally, VCA Animal Hospitals health teams will be at the shelters to offer a limited health guarantee and a certificate for a free first exam to all new pet owners to ensure a healthy start.
