VCA Sponsors Clear the Shelters Presented by NBC4 Southern California – on Saturday, August 18th, 2018


For the fourth consecutive year, VCA Animal Hospitals has teamed up with
NBC4 Southern California for a one-of-a-kind pet adoption initiative – Clear
the Shelters
– on Saturday, August 18th. On this day,
shelters will adopt out homeless pets into their forever homes for a
reduced adoption fee of $20. VCA is committed to supporting community
animal welfare partners so they can improve the lives of countless
disadvantaged dogs, cats and other pets.

"We are proud to partner with NBC4 again this year, and to help raise
awareness about the benefits of adopting from a local shelter," said Art
Antin, Chief Operating Officer and Co-founder of VCA. "Working
collaboratively, VCA and the shelters are making a meaningful, and often
lifesaving, difference in the lives of so many pets. We're looking
forward to working together to promote the health and happiness of pets
throughout the country."

On this day of action, participating animal shelters will offer reduced
adoption fees and open their doors to find new homes for homeless pets.
VCA Animal Hospitals' teams will be on-site at community shelters, and
all pets adopted during the event will receive a limited health
guarantee and a gift bag filled with pet essentials. Pet owners visiting
the event will also be offered a certificate for a Free First Exam, so
they can experience the exceptional care offered at VCA Animal Hospitals.

The public is encouraged to follow the effort and post pet photos on
