Today is a very important and amazing day for animal lovers everywhere. We all know the importance of adopting dogs from shelters, instead of purchasing from stores or breeders. Clear The Shelters day is a day where shelters all over the United States come together, with many reducing or waiving the adoption fee, in order to, you guessed it, clear the shelters! Their website states:
Animal shelters across the country will come together July 23 for Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption initiative that aims to connect animals in need with loving new families.
This organization has helped over 1,000 animals become adopted today alone. Over the past month over 3,000. In 2015, over 20,000 animals found their forever homes. NBC and Telemundo have teamed up with their shelters in order to support this initiative. Try to support this organization in any way possible, it is changing animal lives forever!
