Cat Overlooked in 2018 Clear the Shelters Still Needs Home

Clear the Shelters

Help WETM-TV ‘Clear the Shelters!’ We hope you come out on Saturday, August 25 -Aug 29th, 2020, and adopt a furry friend!

Adoption fees are waived at participating shelters, during this time only, pending application approval. Other fees may still apply.

Here’s are participating adoption shelters in the Twin Tiers:

The Animal Care Sanctuary is a no-kill sanctuary with locations in East Smithfield and Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. Our mission is to provide a safe and caring refuge for companion animals, inspire change through education, provide adoption services, and support spay/neuter initiatives.

Questions about adoption? Contact the shelter:

Emily Shaffer, Adoption Coordinator
P: (570) 596-2200 x101
E: eshaffer@animalcaresanctuary.org

To be sure the process is smooth, please bring all veterinary records the day of Clear the Shelters, as most veterinarian offices are not open on weekends. Without veterinary records of current furry family members, we cannot complete a same-day adoption. Get ahead of the game and fill out an application a few days prior to arriving and we will work to get you preapproved.

A Chicago-area shelter is hoping to find a home for a beloved cat, the only animal to ever be featured in two Clear the Shelters events at the facility. 

Polly has been at the Michiana Humane Society for nearly 450 days. 

The 4-year-old cat first came to the shelter in May of 2018. 

“She can be so very loving, affectionate, and even will give kisses,” the shelter wrote on its Facebook page. “Then, she is content to hang out and watch out the window. She is an independent but quite social girl. Polly will ask for belly rubs and loves to chase feathered toys! She has a sassy side, too, to go along with all that sweetness!” 

Polly was available for adoption last August during Clear the Shelters, a one-day adoption drive where shelters waive or discount fees for animals 6 months and older, and will again be available in Saturday’s event. 

“In the history of our Clear the Shelters event, we have never had an animal participate 2 years in a row,” the shelter wrote. 

Polly will be able to live with other “relaxes and easy-going cats” and she will also be “totally fine” as the only cat in her home, the shelter said. 

“Maybe this Saturday will be her turn to meet whoever she has been waiting for this whole time,” the shelter wrote.
