(Gloucester Township, NJ) – This Saturday, Aug. 17, the Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center, formerly the Camden County Animal Shelter, is waiving adoption fees from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. as part of its participation in Clear the Shelters, a nationwide adoption drive organized by NBC/Telemundo stations.
“Last year through this initiative, we were able to connect 87 pets with their new families and their new forever homes,” said Freeholder Jonathan Young, liaison to Homeward Bound. “This year, we’re hoping to reach 100 pets or more. Ultimately, our mission is to see every one of these animals leave our facility and come under the care of a loving family.”
The Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center is located at 125 County House Road and is the largest open admission shelter in the region, serving more than 5,000 abused, homeless and neglected animals annually. It offers low-cost vaccinations for owned pets, spay/neuter surgeries for community cats, and works with local county officials to ensure the health and safety of homeless and feral companion animals.
