Milltown, NJ – (July 29, 2020) – Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society has joined NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters™ 2020 pet adoption campaign. To help individuals and communities continue to practice safe social distancing measures, this year’s initiative will run from August 1 through August 31, feature virtual pet adoptions, and make it easy for people to donate online to participating shelters/rescues. This is the sixth consecutive year that NBC and Telemundo owned stations present their popular pet adoption campaign to communities nationwide in partnership with affiliate stations and shelters/rescues. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters campaign has helped more than 410,00 pets find new homes. Visit ClearTheShelters.com for more information.
“We are excited to be a part of such an important national effort,” said Rebecca Smith, Development Director at Karma Cat + Zen Dog Rescue Society. “COVID-19 can’t keep us down – with the help of Clear the Shelters, we will double our donations the first week and are determined to clear our cages. We are even on track to break our adoption record from last year.”
This year’s Clear the Shelters’ “Adopt & Donate” campaign features returning partners WeRescue and GreaterGood.org, and new partner 24PetWatch. Users can use the WeRescue iOS app to locate adoptable pets near their zip code, submit their pet adoption applications through shelters’ websites, and ask questions directly to shelters. Individuals who are interested in donating to a shelter/rescue, please visit GreaterGood.org’s Clear the Shelters donation site ClearTheSheltersFund.org. Also, 24PetWatch is enabling shelters to increase their exposure through 24Petshelter.com/cleartheshelter, a free website providing a full list of participating shelters and their adoptable pets along with a link to contact them.
