Clear the Shelters Event Offers No Cost or Reduced Fee Pet Adoptions

July 20, 2016

The Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC) has teamed up with NBC4 and Telemundo to host NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters second annual nationwide pet adoption drive. MCASAC will offer the public no-cost adoptions on Saturday, July 23 as part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets.

   This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in nearly 20,000 pets finding new homes through an unprecedented partnership between the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations and hundreds of animal shelters located all across the country and in Puerto Rico. The nationwide day of action literally emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need.

   “Last year’s Clear the Shelters event was exhilarating. Staff and volunteers poured their hearts and souls into the one-day event, and they watched so many animals – 86 to be exact – go home with adoptive families,” said Katherine Zenzano, Community Outreach Coordinator for MCASAC. “We’re expecting this year to be even more successful and to find homes for even more animals but to do so we need the community to come out and adopt.”

   The event will take place Saturday, July 23 at the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center at 7315 Muncaster Mill Road in Derwood, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
