Clear the Shelters Is Wildly Successful

Animal shelters around the United States have seen massive response to the nationwide “Clear the Shelters” initiative, with more than 16,000 animals adopted from hundreds of shelters. The initiative was headed up by NBC and stations across the country teamed up with local shelters in order to find good homes for animals without them. Numerous shelters did, in fact, find homes for ALL of their homeless animals. You can follow the movement on twitter at #cleartheshelters, or find local events near you at
