“Through the power of technology and to maintain safe social distancing practices, we are proud to bring back the campaign for the sixth year and offer families the opportunity to find their pet and navigate the adoption process with a participating shelter virtually,” Celia Chavez, President and General Manager, Telemundo 52.
Throughout August, both stations will feature animal-related news stories to further raise awareness about the importance of pet adoptions, fostering pets, and other ways to support local animal shelters in Southern California.
To ensure public safety, this year’s campaign encourages the public to plan their pet adoptions online. Most shelters have eliminated walk-ins and require appointments in advance, while others have specific procedures in place on their websites. To help families plan, please call your local participating shelter for details before visiting.
As part of the Clear the Shelters campaign, NBC4 and Telemundo 52 have teamed up with WeRescue and 24PetWatch to offer viewers the ability to search adoptable pets, connect with a local shelter and submit adoption applications online. Also, individuals interested in donating to a shelter or rescue organization can visit GreaterGood.org’s Clear The Shelters site at ClearTheSheltersFund.org.
