For most of the summer, Arlington Animal Services has been running rampant with cats and dogs. Saturday, it ran rampant with people. 

“I’ve been doing this 14 years and this is the most packed our shelter has ever been,” said Ray Rentschler, field operations director for Arlington Animal Services. “We love it.”

They joined NBC 5 and dozens of other shelters across North Texas for “Empty the Shelter Day,” waiving their adoption fees in hopes of putting thousands of shelter animals into loving homes.

As of Saturday evening, 2,217 animals found new homes, according to Corey Price, animals services manager with the city of Irving, which organized the effort. Dallas Animal Services adopted out 149 cats and dogs. The two shelters in Irving adopted out 157 pets. Arlington found new homes for 133 animals.

Kim Cyrus and her sister Lauryn were two of the first people through the door in Arlington — and it didn’t take long for them to settle on a puppy.

“It was just his cute little face,” said Kim Cyrus. “He had such a cute personality at the window.”

They say they too were surprised by the huge turnout — and were glad they got to the shelter when they did.

“You can’t let them out of your sight once you find one because they’ll be gone real quick,” said Lauryn Cyrus. “There’s tons of people out there waiting for them.”

Arlington Animal Services said that’s no exaggeration. On a typical Saturday, they’ll adopt out 10 dogs if they’re lucky. Saturday, they had already surpassed that total within the first hour.

“They are flying out,” said Rentschler.

Other shelters had similar success. In Irving, there was a line around the building more than an hour before the shelter opened.

Organizers said they’re already looking forward to doing this again next year.

NBC 5 and Telemundo 39 are proud sponsors of Empty the Shelter Day.

Just when you thought you had the sharpest picture possible on your high-definition television manufacturers are promoting ultra high-definition, also called ultra HD, UHD or 4K.

Consumer Reports has tested several 50 to 60-inch UHD sets from big names like Samsung, Sony and Panasonic and the television expert says ultra high-definition TVs has a lot to offer. They deliver four times the number of pixels as regular high-definition sets, so they’re capable of razor sharp detail, especially if you stand up close.

But here’s the rub, from farther away, say, the distance you might be sitting in your living room, the difference between ultra high-def and high-def can be difficult to detect.

Another issue: what to watch. Right now there is not a lot of 4K content to watch, so that means you will be watching a lot of regular HD content on your ultra HD TV.

How does that look? Actually, quite good testers say, because the ultra high-def sets can “upconvert” regular HD programs to the higher resolution, making details look smoother. How well a TV performs the upconversion process is one of the things that differentiates sets.

So, should you buy an ultra high-definition TV? Consumer Reports says that if your TV breaks, you might want to consider an ultra HD TV. But for most people, a regular high performing, 1080p high-definition TV is still a great option. Those ultra high-definition sets Consumer Reports tested cost between $2,000 and $8,000. A great 60-inch 1080p high-definition TV costs far less. These three are Consumer Reports Best Buys:

  • Sharp Aquos LC-60EQ10U for about $1,300
  • Samsung UN60H6350 for about $1,400
  • LG 60PB6600 is a plasma TV for about $850

Complete Ratings and recommendations on all kinds of products, including appliances, cars & trucks, and electronic gear, are available on Consumer Reportswebsite.
