Largo, MarylandThe Prince George’s County Animal Services Facility is teaming up with NBCUniversal owned television station NBC4 Washington/WRC-TV to host the second annual Clear the Shelters – a nationwide pet adoption drive.

The Animal Services Facility in Upper Marlboro will offer the public reduced fee adoptions ($5 pet license fee) and waived pet spaying and neutering fees on Saturday, July 23, 2016 from 10 AM – 4 PM as part of the Clear the Shelters initiative, which seeks to find new homes for homeless pets.

“We’re very excited to once again participate in this national event and work with NBC4 Washington/WRC-TV to showcase the wonderful pets available for adoption in Prince George’s County. From dogs and cats to fish and snakes, there is a wide range of animals waiting to be welcomed into loving, forever homes,” said Rodney Taylor, Associate Director, Animal Services Facility.  

This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after last year’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in 56 pets from the Animal Services Facility finding new homes and nearly 20,000 pets nationwide being adopted into new families.

To demonstrate how quickly the interior temperature of a parked car can reach dangerous levels, a car with digital thermometers placed inside will be on display with video updates of the rising temperatures posted to the internet every hour.

“Interior temperatures of a parked car can rise as much as 30 degrees in as little as one hour. Every year, a child or a pet dies after being left in a parked car in the heat. It is our hope, with this car on display and through the use of social media, to demonstrate how fast and how hot the interior of a car can and will get” says Brian Kress of Marlboro Tire and Automotive.

The car will be on display this Friday July 22, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Marlboro Tire & Automotive, 15204 Marlboro Pike, Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
