Clear the Shelters with SPCA Tampa Bay on August 27

Clear The Shelters Adoption Celebration

Congratulations to the families and 77 pets that were adopted during our 2022 Clear the Shelters event on Saturday, August 27.

Animal shelters, like SPCA Tampa Bay, across the country are celebrating pet companionship and Clear the Shelters adoption events during the month of August.

Traditionally adoption prices range from $30-125 at SPCA Tampa Bay but, on 8/27/2022 they were $8.27. Animals are vaccinated, spay/neutered and microchipped.

Since its 2015 inception, NBCUniversal’s Clear The Shelters has helped more than 700,000 pets find new homes. The 2021 campaign resulted in more than 140,000 pet adoptions and raised more than $500,000. 

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is returning as a national sponsor for its fifth Clear The Shelters this year. Last year on September 18, 2021, 6 cats, 25 dogs, 1 rabbit and 3 guinea pigs (35 PETS TOTAL) found their new homes!

In 2020, 60 animals went home with only one pig left and he was adopted the next morning! 

In 2021, the For-All shelter received donations to support the pets still at the shelter through a generous offer. Catalina Marketing offered to give a gift to the shelter for each pet adoption on September 18, 2021. Between adoption fees and Catalina’s gifts, $12,500 was brought to the shelter to support the care of our pets.

Thank you to all our adopters, sponsors, and NBC Universal’s Clear The Shelter nationwide initiative!
