The Fayette Humane Society announced that it has teamed up with WCMH-NBC 4 to host NBC Universal-owned television stations’ “Clear the Shelters” nationwide pet adoption drive.

The Fayette Humane Society will offer the public reduced fee adoptions this Saturday, July 23, as part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets.

“I learned about a similar event last year and it seemed to be successful. We were invited to participate this year and decided to give it a try. We have several cats and kittens that need a new home and hope that new adopters will consider adopting from us,” said Brad Adams, outreach director.

According to Adams, there are currently 24 cats and kittens at their downtown adoption center. He expects those numbers to rise by the end of the week.

“It would be great if all of our cats and kittens found a home this Saturday. We have so many with different personalities that will make a perfect fit with a new family. All of our cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated, tested for FeLV/FIV, and micro-chipped.” said Adams.

This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in nearly 20,000 pets finding new homes through an unprecedented partnership between the NBC Universal-owned television stations and hundreds of animal shelters located all across the country and in Puerto Rico. The nationwide day of action literally emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need.

Visit the Fayette Humane Society to adopt a new cat or kitten for a reduced adoption fee of $20 this Saturday, July 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Their adoption and business center is located on the corner of South Main and East streets in downtown Washington Court House. The entrance is on the East Street side.
