WRAL-TV and MIX 101.5 helped the Humane Society of the U.S. empty animal shelters in the Triangle last Saturday, and now are celebrating their success with NBC for a half-hour Clear the Shelters special on Friday, August 24, 2018. More than 1,800 cats and dogs found new homes locally, with over 91,000 nation-wide.
During the annual Clear the Shelters event, many shelters waived adoption fees in the nation’s largest one-day effort to get as many animals forever homes as possible.
In the 30-minute special, NBC is showcasing the stories of shelter pets adopted out of the nation’s largest one-day adoption event. Jane Lynch will host Clear the Shelters, which airs on WRAL-TV this Friday night at 7pm. In addition to national stories, WRAL-TV Anchor Gerald Owens will share about the local Clear the Shelters event.
