“Texas Litter Control is proud to be a part of the Clear The Shelters campaign to spread the word about the importance of adopting pets from local shelters and rescues.There are so many loving pets that are ready to go to amazing homes and we need support to help empty shelters more now than ever. We hope that this campaign encourages the community to donate and to help shelters and rescues by matching a new pet companion with their new home this August,” Texas Litter Control’s Executive Director, Deana Sellens says.
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.
