National Clear the Shelter Day–Aug 19, 2017

NBC and Telemundo owned stations are teaming up with hundreds of shelters across the country to host Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive on Saturday, August 19 to help find loving homes for animals in need. Over 50,000 pets found their forever homes in 2016. The shelter I volunteer at will be participating in this. As seen by the graphic below. What about ones in your area? Do they have something similar in other countries. Go to, Clear the Shelters, to learn more.

Feeding Pets of the Homeless

Homelessness is another cause that I’m passionate about. If there are any in your area, as there are here, you probably have seen some with dogs, a few with cats. I’m thankful for organizations like this. They’re in Carson City, NV. I’ll have to check if there’s any places like this in NorCal.

Feeding Pets of the Homeless believes in the healing power of companion pets and of the human/animal bond which is very important in the lives of many homeless. They find solace, protection and companionship through their pets. They care for their pets on limited resources so they themselves have less. Our task, nationwide, is to feed and provide basic emergency veterinary care to their pets and thus relieve the anguish and anxiety of the homeless who cannot provide for their pets.
