NBC4 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND TELEMUNDO 52 HOST ANNUAL PET ADOPTION DRIVE – CLEAR THE SHELTERS – ON SATURDAY, JULY 23
Stations Team Up with 55 Animal Shelters Across Five Counties to Match Homeless Pets with New Homes at Reduced Adoption Fee
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.
