Save the date! On August 19, 2017, the Santa Monica Animal Shelter will be joining NBC4 Southern California and Telemundo 52 for the third annual pet adoption event ‘Clear the Shelters’. Animal shelters throughout Southern California will open their doors from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. offering adoptions for $20 on all pets.
Clear the Shelters raises awareness about the benefits of pet adoption and aims to reduce the animal overpopulation at local shelters. During the campaign, NBC and Telemundo will feature coverage to spotlight the issue; including the importance of spaying/neutering, the benefits of micro-chipping, and guidance for families to find the right pet for their homes.
As part of the event, VCA – Santa Monica Animal Hospital will be onsite offering pet advice from expert veterinarians and their healthcare teams. All pets adopted during the event will receive a limited health guarantee and a gift bag filled with pet essentials.
As part of this initiative, the public is encouraged to share photographs with their pets on social media using the following hashtags: #LoveMyPet;#AmoAMiMascota; #ClearTheShelters; and #DesocuparLosAlbergues which will be shared in photo galleries by NBC and Telemundo 52. If you adopt in Santa Monica, share your photographs on the Santa Monica Animal Shelter’s Facebook page with #AdoptSantaMonicaAnimalShelter.
This initiative seeks to place as many animals into loving homes. If you are considering a pet adoption, please visit the Santa Monica Animal Shelter located at 1640 9th St., Santa Monica, CA 90401.
