 UNIVERSAL CITY, CA – (July 7, 2016) – NBC4 Southern California / KNBC and Telemundo 52 Los Angeles / KVEA will partner with more than 55 animal shelters in hundreds of cities and communities throughout Southern California for its annual Clear the Shelters (Desocupar los Albergues) pet adoption campaign on Saturday, July 23. This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in over 2,500 pets finding new homes. On this day of action, participating animal shelters in Southern California will offer a reduced adoption fee of $20, and open their doors from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  NBC4 and Telemundo 52, along with several anchors and reporters, will visit select shelters to celebrate with those who adopt.  Additionally, local sponsor VCA Animal Hospitals will have their expert veterinarians and healthcare teams on-site, and all pets adopted during the event will receive a limited health guarantee and a gift bag filled with pet essentials.

“Get ME-OWTTA Here!” Free Cat Adoptions Extended Through July at OC Animal Care
 (Orange, CA) OC Animal Care hosted its first annual “Get ME-OWTTA Here!” cat adoption promotion in June, which offered free cat adoptions on all shelter cats for the entire month.  The response to the promotion was incredible and resulted in 301 cat adoptions, 100 more than last June and a record number for monthly cat adoptions at OC Animal Care!  To continue to help more homeless cats through the busy summer months, OC Animal Care has decided to extend the “Get ME-OWTTA Here!” free cat adoption promotion through July. Free cat adoptions include all services (FVRCP and Rabies vaccinations, de-worming, flea-treatment, FIV/FELV testing and spay/neuter) except microchip ($17).  Adoption discounts are covered by donations from generous community members. There are currently more than 70 cats and kittens available for adoption at the shelter and new arrivals come in daily.  Available cats and kittens can be viewed on our website at www.ocpetinfo.com or in person at the shelter.
