I always knew I liked that NBC Universal! As if their decision to dump Trump’ s Miss Universe pageant after his comments about Mexican immigrants wasn’t enough to get my viewership the NBC owned group is now dedicating a special day to help clear animal shelters nation wide in what they are calling #ClearTheShelters day! This will mark the third year in a row NBC hosts the event homeless animals.
This years event will take place Saturday JULY 23, when hundreds of shelters across the country will agree to waive all adoption fees (spay/neuter fees) that Saturday for the one-day event, organized in partnership with NBC Owned Television Stations and Telemundo Stations Group.
Surprisingly, only about 20 percent of people looking for a pet choose a shelter animal. And with overflow of homeless pets pouring into shelters after spring births, a day like this can make all the difference!
Please share with friends and family this exclusive opportunity families looking to adopt a pet will get on July 23rd and help San Diego clear it’s animal shelters!
