On August 15, the Santa Monica Animal Shelter will join NBC 4 of Southern California and Telemundo, Channel 52 on a first-of-its-kind pet adoption initiative. Nearly 50 animal shelters throughout Southern California will open their doors from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. to offer the public reduced cost pet adoptions.
The local VCA-Venice Animal Hospital will be onsite at the Santa Monica Animal Shelter offering pet advice from expert veterinarians and their healthcare teams. All pets adopted during the event will receive a limited health guarantee and a gift bag filled with pet essentials. As part of this initiative, the public is encouraged to share photos with their pets on social media using the hashtag #CleartheShelters and #DesocuparAlbergues, which will be shared in photo galleries by NBC and Telemundo 52. If you adopt in Santa Monica, share your photos on the Santa Monica Animal Shelter’s Facebook page with hashtag #AdoptSantaMonica. The Clear the Shelters initiative seeks to get as many homeless animals into loving homes. If you are considering a pet adoption, please visit the Santa Monica Animal Shelter located at 1640 9th St. For additional information about the Clear the Shelters initiative please visit www.NBCLA.com/Community.
