Clear The Shelters 2019
Get ready for the fifth annual Clear the Shelters event at registered animal shelters across the United States beginning on August 17, 2019.
In 2018, over 100,000 companion animals were adopted from 1200 participating animal rescues and humane societies. So far, 1000 animal shelters are signed up to participate in the largest pet adoption event in the country.
"Every year, millions of companion animals end up in shelters across the country. And while shelter adoption rates have been steadily rising since 2011, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, approximately 1.5 million animals — 860,000 cats and about 670,000 dogs — are still euthanized each year due to overcrowding."
