Pet adoption drive is part of NBC and Telemundo Owned Stations’ sixth annual Clear The Shelters nationwide pet adoption campaign
Cat Depot, a Sarasota-based, feline-only animal rescue and adoption center will host a Clear The Shelters™ pet adoption drive throughout the month of August as part of NBC and Telemundo owned stations’ month-long Clear The Shelters 2020 campaign. Every day in August, individuals can make an appointment to visit Cat Depot to adopt a kitty. In addition, to help individuals and communities continue to practice safe social distancing measures, this year’s initiative will make it easy for people to donate online to participating shelters/rescues. Since 2015, more than 410,000 pets have been adopted through the NBC and Telemundo owned stations’ Clear The Shelters campaign. Visit ClearTheShelters.com for more information.
Cat Depot provides a safe haven for a wide variety of cats and kittens on any given day until they are adopted into loving homes. Cat Depot is a limited admissions adoption center operating at optimal capacity. For every feline that is adopted, Cat Depot is able to open its doors to felines who need help so if you’ve been thinking about adopting, this is the perfect time to do so.
Through the 2020 #ClearTheShelters campaign, Cat Depot has already been able to give homes to more than 60 kitties – that’s this month alone! “We’re so thankful for all of the kindness shown by adopters and fosters that have found it in their hearts to open their homes to new furry friends.” To see all of the cats available for adoption, please visit their website at catdepot.org/adopt.
If you can’t adopt, but would like to help virtually, you can donate to Cat Depot through the Greater Good to #ClearTheShelters from home at Clearthesheltersfund.org/.
Follow Cat Depot on social media – Twitter @catdepot, Instagram @catdepot and Facebook facebook.com/catdepot and using #ClearTheShelters and #catdepotsaveslives.
A pet “Adoption Tracker” posted on ClearTheShelters.com will record the total number of pets that are adopted throughout August 2020.

About Clear The Shelters
Clear The Shelters™ / Desocupar Los Albergues® is an annual, nationwide pet adoption campaign that is spearheaded by NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations, a division of NBCUniversal. Every year, NBCUniversal’s TV stations (NBC and Telemundo owned stations), plus affiliated stations partner with local animal shelters and rescues in their communities to host Clear The Shelters events. NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters campaign was inspired by a 2014 North Texas pet adoption event hosted by NBC 5 / KXAS and Telemundo 39 / KXTX and dozens of area shelters that resulted in the most adopted pets in one day for North Texas. Since 2015, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear The Shelters pet adoption campaign has resulted in more than 410,000 pets finding new homes.
