NBC television stations are gearing up with shelters across the nation for an annual pet adoption drive this weekend to find loving homes for animals in need. It’s all part of the annual Clear the Shelters event
Each year, hundreds of adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the united states each day, that is over 2 million each year!
Before adopting a dog, it’s important to pup-proof your home. Hide dangerous items such as chemicals, electrical wiring, and sharp objects. Any toxic food or plants. Put away anything that could be viewed by your new dog as a toy. Leave plenty of dog-friendly chew toys out!
Be sure to join us Saturday morning at 8:30 a.M. On NBC 6 news for our special ‘clear the shelters’ newscast.
Nationwide over 160 -thousands of animals have found their ‘fur-ever’ homes thanks to the ‘clear the shelters’ initiative and we want to add to that number.
We’ll have live reports from the animal shelters in Bossier, Caddo, and Texarkana.
