ABC NEWS– This is the last week for the Clear the Shelters campaign, which offers reduced adoption fees for pets in participating shelters. While overcrowding has been a problem for humane societies across the state for months, directors are emphasizing if you are considering adopting a pet to take your time and make sure you can take care of a four legged family member. ABC’s Carlos Flores spoke with two shelter directors about the impacts returning adopted animals have on the shelter and the pets themselves.
