Clear the Shelters Day
Clear the Shelters Day is a nationwide pet adoption drive on Saturday, August 17, with a mission to help find loving homes for animals in need. NBC and Telemundo owned stations team up with hundreds of shelters across the country. Here are some local shelters in the Essex County/Northern New Jersey area taking part:
Montclair Township Animal Shelter
77 North Willow Street, Montclair
Montclair's animal shelter will waive adoption fees, for all approved adoptions, on all adult cats and dogs on both Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18.
R & M Rockin Rescues
411A Valley Brook Avenue, Lyndhurst
This nonprofit will have many cats and kittens and are offering a number of incentives for adopters, including a 15% discount on all adult cat adoption fees, half off the adoption fee for a second pet adopted, and a store discount booklet and a litter box and scooper or a case of food with every adoption.
Humane Society of Bergen County
221-223 Stuyvesant Ave., Lyndhurst
Adoptable animals will include dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds. Since they are primarily a cat facility, all adult cats will be available for a reduced adoption fee. Potential adopters will still be required to go through the HSBC adoption process.
