WALKER, Mich. (WOOD) — On Saturday, WOOD TV8 and NBC stations across the country teamed up with hundreds of shelters to host Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive.
The event was all about finding homes for tens of thousands of animals, and the turnout at the Humane Society of West Michigan — one of the participating shelters in West Michigan — was a success, according to Trudy Ender, the shelter’s executive director.
“Our hearts are so full. Today was so successful, so many animals in need of a home are now in homes,” Ender said. “They are on the car ride, they’re at their new forever home, and it is just such an exhilarating day.”
According to Ender, approximately 300 animals per day are in the care of the West Michigan Humane Society, whether on-site or off-site.
“Days like today, this kind of exposure, really makes a huge difference in the lives of humans and pets,” she said.
