Clear the Shelters Day: Saturday, August 17 (In Charlotte And Everywhere)

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 

Help Clear Charlotte's Pet Shelters On Saturday, August 17th!

 

 

Clear the Shelter Day In CharlotteSaturday, August 17th is Clear The Shelters Day sponsored by NBC Charlotte, as well as by NBC and Telemundo-owned stations in cities around the country. Clear the Shelters is a nationwide pet adoption initiative whose purpose is to find fur-ever homes for homeless pets. Since 2015, with over 900 participating shelters, more than 263,000 pet adoptions have taken place as a result of the national Clear The Shelter Day initiative. 

 

Animal shelters typically become overcrowded in the summer months because of spring litters. On Satuday, help find fur-ever homes for Charlotte's homeless pet population. Many shelters have agreed to waive or reduce adoption fees on Clear The Shelters Day. All pets available for adoption have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated.

Hello Nina - it's unfortunate yet quite fortunate that pet adoption events such as this nation-wide effort takes place.  May it be a happy(and happily)  furever type of event.

Michael Jacobs hi MIchael... I deliver supplies to my local shelter on a monthly basis and have adopted all of my pets from there since we moved to Charlotte 21 years ago. Somehow, no matter the number of adoptions (which grow each year). the shelter is always filled with homeless dogs and cats. As someone who considers her pets as her "children," I just don't get how people treat their animals this way.

Sheila Anderson hi Sheila, one of my "pet" causes, as you... pet adoption. I've been promoting this event since it first appeared in Charlotte. I always figure that if only one pet gets adopted because of me, I've done well.

Joan Cox hi Joan... I'm sure this event is happening in the Denver area as well. By the same token, there's never a day in the year when a shelter doesn't have pets for adoption.
