Islip, NY – The Islip Town Animal Shelter announced today that it has teamed up with NBC 4 New York/WNBC and Telemundo 47/WNJU to host NBC Universal-owned television stations’ Clear the Shelters second annual nationwide pet adoption drive. The Islip Animal Shelter is waiving adoption fees on Saturday, July 23, as part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets. 

“Our Animal Shelter has many great pets looking for new homes, and they’d make a loving addition to any family,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “We’re proud to be a part of this nationwide effort to give these animals a second chance in life.” 

This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in nearly 20,000 pets finding new homes through an unprecedented partnership between the NBCUniversal-owned television stations and hundreds of animal shelters located all across the country and in Puerto Rico. The nationwide day of action literally emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need.
