Columbia Announces 73 Pet Adoptions during Clear the Shelter Event
Aug 21, 2019

Columbia Animal Services would like to send a heartfelt thank you to our community for their support of the free Clear the Shelter Adoption event this past Saturday, August 17, 2019.  

“We love this event.  It comes at a time of year when the shelter is at its fullest, so getting this many pets (73) out to new homes, in just one day, makes a huge difference for us.  We love our citizens and their willingness to help out so many homeless pets,” said Marli Drum, Superintendent.  

When the front doors opened that morning, dozens were waiting in line to adopt a new pet.  By closing at 4:00 that afternoon, 73 pets had found their “furever” homes.
