Pasadena Humane has joined NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters™ 2020 pet adoption campaign throughout August.
To help individuals and communities continue to practice safe social distancing measures, this year’s initiative will feature virtual pet adoptions.
This is the sixth consecutive year that NBC and Telemundo owned stations present their popular pet adoption campaign to communities nationwide in partnership with affiliate stations and shelters/rescues. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters campaign has helped more than 410,00 pets find new homes. Visit ClearTheShelters.com for more information.
“Matching pets with people is at the core of our mission at Pasadena Humane. Because of Clear the Shelters, we’ve been able to place hundreds of animals into loving homes over the years, and we’re excited to partner again this August,” says Dia DuVernet, President & CEO at Pasadena Humane.
Users can use the WeRescue iOS app to locate adoptable pets near their zip code, submit their pet adoption applications through shelters’ websites, and ask questions directly to shelters. Individuals who are interested in donating to a shelter/rescue, please visit GreaterGood.org’s Clear The Shelters donation site ClearTheSheltersFund.org.
Also, 24PetWatch is enabling shelters to increase their exposure through 24Petshelter.com/cleartheshelter, a free website providing a full list of participating shelters and their adoptable pets along with a link to contact them.
