The Humane Rescue Alliance will once again join NBC4 to host NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters third annual nationwide pet adoption drive. HRA will offer the public fee-waived adoptions on Saturday, August 19, 2017 as part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets.
Clear the Shelters comes after last year’s highly successful event, which resulted in nearly 54,000 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.
It won't matter if you're #TeamCat or #TeamDog because on August 19, when you adopt from the Humane Rescue Alliance all adoption fees are waived! Both adoption centers, 1201 New York Avenue NE and 71 Oglethorpe Street NW, will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and all standard adoption procedures apply.
Available animals can be seen at humanerescuealliance.org/adopt. And potential adopters can visit NBCWashington.com to access more information about Clear the Shelters, including the full list of local participating animal shelters.
