Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) has joined NBCUniversal Local’s 2022 Clear the Shelters™ pet adoption and donation campaign. This is the eighth consecutive year that NBC and Telemundo owned stations are partnering with affiliate stations and animal shelters and rescues to promote pet adoption and help raise funds to support animal welfare. Since its inception in 2015, Clear The Shelters has helped more than 700,000 pets find new homes.
This year's Clear The Shelters will run for the entire month of August 2022, and adoption fees will be reduced at OCAS during that time. For more information about available pets and reduced adoption fees during Clear The Shelters, visit www.orangecountync.gov/287/Available-Pets or call 919-942-7387, option 3.
OCAS also encourages donations by asking that everyone check out the opportunities listed at www.orangecountync.gov/364/Donations. Donations always make a difference, but they are especially helpful during these challenging times. OCAS depends upon monetary and material donations to continue to care for the thousands of animals that come to the shelter each year.
