The second annual Clear the Shelters nationwide pet adoption event brought San Diegans to shelters across the county in search of a furry friend to take home, including to the San Diego Humane Society on Gaines Street where NBC 7’s Dagmar Midcap spoke with locals looking to adopt pets throughout the day.Another lucky dog, Cooper, was among the first to be adopted Saturday at the San Diego Humane Society. His new family found an adoption listing for Cooper online a few days ago and came out to Clear The Shelters to pick up their new pet.We are advocates for homeless dogs and cats in San Diego that are at risk for euthanasia. Our goal is to save treatable, trainable, manageable and misdiagnosed animals from San Diego shelters by providing a system of transport, training, fostering and adoption. Our ultimate wish would be empty shelters—meaning that no animal is abandoned and no shelter would need to kill one animal to make room for another. To this end, we are also cheerleaders for robust programs, and TNR (trap, neuter, release) programs for feral cats. Please note: SPOT does not take in strays or owner-relinquished pets, but If you're looking to adopt a new pet this weekend, you can get one for free at the San Diego Humane Society. Free adoptions are in honor of the organization's Day of Giving that was a huge success. By the end of the day Saturday, 771 pets had been adopted across San Diego County. In El Cajon, almost all of the pets up for adoption were placed with families, with the exception of one pup named Opie.“The San Diego Animal Support Foundation does this with one goal in mind: to increase adoptions and move pets out of the system and into loving forever homes,” White said. “Our mission is to promote the adoption of animals and encourage responsible pet care, by working with the public and a network of respected local animal welfare agencies. “
