On Saturday, August 17th from 8: 00 AM – 6:00 PM, Northshore Humane Society will offer fee-waived adoptions for all adoptable dogs and cats at their rescue. The event will take place at the facility located at 20384 Harrison Ave. in Covington, LA.
This one-day event is in partnership with NBC and Telemundo stations around the country. The Clear the Shelters national initiative includes over 900 shelters and 100,000 homeless pets. Northshore Humane Society’s Clear the Shelters adoption day will not only include fee-waived adoptions, but there will also be food trucks, animal –related vendors, activities and much more all on-site.
The event comes at a perfect time. The nonprofit, no-kill rescue is at maximum capacity with over 200 animals under its care. CEO Scott Bernier explains, “Our number of adoptions decreases during summer because of vacation occupying potential adopters and homeless animals are coming in faster than ever. We have kennels that are doubled, even tripled up”.
Each adopter will still go through the same application and adoption process and will need to purchase at least one month of prevention at the time of adoption. For more information, visit northshorehumane.org/adopt.
NHS Pet of the Week
Meet Danny. He is an 11 month old domestic shorthair mix who transferred to Northshore Humane Society from another shelter with space limitations. Sadly, he is the only one of his siblings who has not yet found a home. This sweet, quiet man gets along with cats and kittens of all ages, even kids!
Visit the Northshore Humane Society to meet Danny or any of the other pets looking for loving homes. NHS is located at 20384 Harrison Ave. 985-705-7589. Visit online at northshorehumane.org
