BUFFALO, NY — Saturday marked the second year in a row that Channel 2 hosted the local Clear the Shelters Day campaign, a day when all pet adoption fees were waved at agencies across the country. The goal was to help as many pets as possible find fur-ever homes.
On Monday, the results were in: Seven shelters participating in the local initiative logged 135 pet adoptions.
Forty of those furry friends who found a home were from the Chautauqua County Humane Society. The Niagara County SPCA had nearly the same number of adoptions, at 39.
Saturday night around 10 p.m., other adoption numbers in the area included:
City of Buffalo Animal Shelter — 23 adoptions
Wyoming County SPCA — six adoptions
Erie County SPCA — 23 adoptions
Tabby Town Cat Adoption — four adoptions
Thanks to all who participated!
