CLEVELAND — After 3News and the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL) teamed up during Clear the Shelters to waive adoption fees on adult dogs and cats, 76 animals found a new home!
3News was live Saturday during our morning show GO! at the Cleveland Animal Protective League.
The cost to adopt a kitten was reduced from the regular fee of $95.00 to $25.00. There was no fee for adopting adult cats or dogs.
By the end of Saturday, 48 animals were adopted and left the shelter, including 39 cats, five dogs and four fish.
Another 26 individuals completed the adoption process, but the animals must wait to be spayed or neutered before they are brought home.
The Cleveland APL, 3News and national sponsor Hill's Pet Nutrition have all joined the 2022 Clear the Shelters adoption campaign.
This is the eighth consecutive year that NBC and Telelmundo-owned stations are participating with affiliate stations, animal shelters and rescues to promote pet adoption.
Since Clear the Shelters began in 2015, over 700,000 pets have found new homes.
Locally, over 20 shelters and rescues are participating in the Clear the Shelters campaign, and so far, over 2,000 pets have found new homes!
“The entire month of August, shelters across the country have been participating in Clear the Shelters, and we want to finish on a high note with more animals in loving homes,” said Sharon Harvey, Cleveland APL President & CEO. “We currently have so many wonderful adoptable animals waiting for their new family to fall in love with them. Our wonderful Cleveland APL team is poised and ready to help adopters find their perfect match and Clear the Shelter during this one-day adoption promotion!”
The Cleveland APL is located at 1729 Wiley Avenue.
