On August 15, 2015, AWLA participated in the national #Cleartheshelters day – a project of NBC.  This was a great opportunity to get the word out about the large number of wonderful animals available for adoption at local animal shelters.  We saw an increase in animal adoptions before, during and after the event. We place 40 dogs and cats (and one ferret) on August 15, 2015.  All regular adoption processes did apply.
