June 18, 2016 – Baltimore Humane Society is teaming up with NBC Universal’s second annual sponsored Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption drive. Free adoptions will be offered 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 NBC Universal Owned Television Stations and hundreds of animal shelters located all across the country. 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.
In addition to waived adoption fees, all adoptions will include:
- Spay or neuter
- $200 worth of free preventative veterinary services to each adoptive family donated by VIP Pet Care
Petco is also participating and will be underwriting some of the medical cost of the spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, and testing.
Baltimore Humane Society will also be celebrating the Clear the Shelters event with a Yappy Hour at Charles Village Pub in Towson from 11am-3pm on July 23rd sponsored by Tito’s and Charles Village Pub.
