Martinsville, IN, August 10, 2020 – The Morgan County Humane Society (MCHS) has joined NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the SheltersTM 2020 pet adoption campaign. This is the first time MCHS has participated in this national initiative. The campaign is helping individuals and communities continue to practice safe social distancing measures, this year’s event will run from August 1 through August 31, feature virtual pet adoptions and make it easy for people to donate online to participating shelters/rescues. This is the sixth consecutive year that NBC and Telemundo owned stations present their popular pet adoption campaign to communities nationwide in partnership with affiliate stations and shelters/rescues. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters campaign has helped more than 410,00 pets find new homes. Visit ClearTheShelters.com for more information. 

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. MCHS will be offering new adopters no-cost adoptions, but we are asking for a donation to help us continue to help other animals looking for a forever home. We are currently doing adoptions by appointment. Please fill out an application on our website https://www.mchumanesoc.org/adopt.html
