Oakland Animal Services invites you to help “Clear the Shelter” on Saturday, August 15. The Clear the Shelters effort, part of a national initiative spearheaded by the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations division of NBCUniversal, pairs local television stations with animal shelters across the country to find new homes for homeless pets. On this national day of action, OAS will offer fee-waived adoptions and extended hours from 10 am to 6 pm.
Adoption events like this are particularly important because OAS is at 200% capacity with its animal population.
“There are thousands of animals sitting in shelters across the Bay Area right now waiting for families to rescue them. We’re proud to be working with numerous shelters across the Bay Area to help ‘Clear the Shelters’ and help find these animals permanent, loving homes,” said Rich Cerussi, President and General Manager of NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48.
