Clear the Shelters at the Michiana Humane Society!
Michigan City, IN

Saturday, August 17th the Michiana Humane Society will be participating in Clear the Shelters Day. NBC and Telemundo owned stations are teaming up with hundreds of shelters across the country to host Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive to help find loving homes for animals in need. More than 250,000 pets found their forever homes since 2015. This day is not only sponsored by NBC Universal and Telemundo, but locally, it is also sponsored by Hills Foods and Cat's Pride Litter.

For this one day, from 11am to 4pm Central, you will be able to adopt a dog, kitten, or cat for free. Again, adoption fees will be waived for this day only. The regular adoption process will still take place, which means you will not be able to take your pet home the same day. If you come to the shelter on Clear the Shelters day and find that you have bonded with one of the animals, you can fill out an application and within 48 hours, you will be notified if your application has been accepted. MHS is also looking for foster home families to care for two dogs and one puppy until they are healthy enough to be eligible for adoption.

This annual event benefits the animals in the shelter by giving them forever homes, and the people who adopt them by adding another addition to their families. It is the only day in the year that adoptions are free, so if you have been wanting to make that addition to your family, August 17 is the day to come in and see if there is a pet that is perfect for you.
