Clear The Shelter Day!
Save the Date: Help Clear the Shelters on August 17!
If you’re thinking about taking home a new furry friend, consider heading to CCARE to adopt during national Clear the Shelter Day on Aug. 17, when hundreds of shelters will waive or discount fees as part of the one-day adoption drive! Every year, millions of companion animals end up in shelters. While shelter adoption rates have been steadily rising since 2011, about 1.5 million animals are euthanized each year due to overcrowding. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.
By adopting a shelter animal, you actually save two lives – the dog you adopt, and the dog who gets to take its place! Last year, more than 100,000 pets were adopted from over 1,200 shelters across the country. Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has helped 256,688 pets find forever homes.
CCARE's hours will be 9 AM - 2 PM. To celebrate and hopefully clear out our shelter, we are offering:
- $0 adoption fees on all dogs, thanks to our local business sponsors
- Meet-and-greet with Scott, our Director
- Tours of our facility
- Refreshments for all guests
- Prizes and giveaways (must be present to win)
- Children's craft activity
