30 ANIMALS OUT OF SOUTH ANIMAL CARE CENTER
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On April 1, Tony and Cheree from the WA1A Zazza Morning Show and I were at the South Animal Care Center on Eau Gallie Blvd. taking part in the 1st Annual “Clear The Shelter” event.
The event that is continuing through the night has already had great success with over 30 animals being adopted out today or taking part in our Pajama Pup Program.
Tony and Cheree came up with this incredible idea to do an all day broadcast from our South Animal Care Center with the goal of staying the night at the shelter until Saturday morning or until we found a new forever home for every animal in our Care Center that is available for adoption.
We are still here and we are still anxious for potential adopters to come visit us and our incredible pets that are available for adoption.
Even though “Sire” who we posted for adoption earlier today got adopted there are still about 10 wonderful dogs and 3 incredible cats that are here with us waiting on a new forever home.
A big special thank you goes out to Tony and Cheree for this great idea and to our staff and volunteers who worked so hard to make today such a success.
