Clear The Shelters Adoption Event This Saturday

More than 53,000 pets were adopted through the 2016 Clear the Shelters campaign, a nationwide push to place deserving animals in forever homes.

Crossroads Animal Shelter in Buffalo, MN set a personal record on the big day a year ago when they adopted more than 30 animals.

Of course, shelters host adoption drives all the time, but Clear the Shelters is a concentrated, national effort involving hundreds of shelters.

Family members in the form of 15 dogs and 35 cats to start the day.

This includes the San Diego Humane Society on Gaines Street, where NBC 7's own resident animal enthusiast, Dagmar Midcap, will be speaking with locals looking to adopt pets throughout the day.

"The growth we've seen in Clear the Shelters since we brought it to Tulsa in 2015 has been incredible to witness", said Mindy Tiner, Tulsa SPCA executive director.

"We're overfilled, and we can really move a lot of dogs out on a day like this", McGee said".

Seconds 'All It Took': Oregon Man Left Partially Blind by 1963 Eclipse

"The shelter has been at capacity since the onset of summer", she told The Daily Times on Thursday.

Getting people into the shelter to adopt is key, she said. The adoption fee covers those items and the shelter is reducing some of the fees to encourage more adoptions.

If you are considering a pet adoption, please visit the Santa Monica Animal Shelter located at 1640 9th St., Santa Monica, CA 90401.

Kelsey said Atlantic County Animal Shelter was hoping to adopt out 31 dogs and 63 cats during the event, slightly less than the number of adoptions made a year ago at 97, and planned to stay open until all the pets were adopted out.

The Saskatoon SPCA is waiving adoption fees for adult cats and reducing fees for kitten adoptions as part of the campaign. "This is not a profitable event, but it will pay off in the end when the animals find homes". 6 of those pets have been put on hold to be adopted this week.

You don't need to have an adopted animal to participate.
