We need your help to Clear the Shelters on Saturday, August 19th!
NBC 5 has teamed up with the Saving Hope Foundation to create the Clear the Shelters Adoption Ready Fund, and we need your tax deductible donations to help the participating shelters offset their “adoption ready” veterinary costs. This will allow the shelters to increase the number of animals available for adoption on Clear the Shelters Day.
The vision for Clear the Shelters originated with NBC 5, Telemundo 39 and Irving Animal Services in 2014. The event set a record for the most number of pets adopted in North Texas.
Clear the Shelters is now an NBCUniversal Owned Station nation-wide initiative, and it is the largest free pet adoption event in the country. To date, the campaign has helped find fur-ever homes for over 75,000 animals!
Did you know that on average it costs a shelter between $50 - $100 to provide a homeless pet with basic veterinary services (spay neuter surgery, vaccinations, and microchips) to make them adoption ready? Because the event offers fee-waived adoptions, many shelter managers are unable to participate in Clear the Shelters or adopt out all of their animals due to lack of funding.
Please make a tax-deductible donation to the Clear the Shelters Adoption Ready Fund to ensure that every homeless pet in North Texas has the opportunity to find love this summer. Donate today at www.cftexas.org/CTSAdoptionReady.
